Redskins: "Gruden anticipates RGIII being the starter going into the 2015 season."
In an odd move, the Washington Redskins' Twitter account posted this:
Gruden says he anticipates QB @RGIII being the starter going into the 2015 season. — Washington Redskins (@Redskins) February 18, 2015What's odd about that? When was the last time you heard anyone name a starter in as shaky a QB situation as there seems to be in Washington before Free Agency even starts? Whenever things like this "leak", I'm always left questioning the motivation. In this case, this is either the start of what Greg Gabriel calls, "The Lying Season", or they are really over assuring us. My bet is on the former, as there would be no reason why you would officially marry yourself to a starter with all the possibilities ahead of you. They are setting the market, trying to prop RGIII up as unattainable, and hoping to get a nice price for him. Follow me on Twitter @erikoehler
