Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III eyed his receiver during practice at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Va. on Jan. 6.

ASHBURN, Va. » Robert Griffin III has cleared out his locker at Redskins Park and is expected to be let go by the team that dealt a trove of draft picks for the right to pick him No. 2 overall in 2012.

A day after Washington’s season ended with a 35-18 playoff loss to Green Bay, Redskins players packed up their belongings. The Redskins’ offseason begins with one main question: Will Kirk Cousins, who replaced Griffin as the starting quarterback, sign a long-term deal?

Griffin declined to take questions today. Cousins wasn’t in the locker room while it was open to the media.

Griffin collected plastic action figures lining his stall’s the top shelf — a green Hulk poked its head out of the QB’s full cardboard box — and peeled off bits of paper with phrases such as “Tackle adversity!” or “Sacrifice!” He left a sign filled with aphorisms, including: “People are often unreasonable, irrational, & self-centered; forgive them anyway.”

    Change the racist name and the narcissist owner. Otherwise the Danskins will continue succumbing to Custer’s Curse.

    Are you okay with the “Red Raiders” of Kahuku?

    The dude needs a change in scenery. Hope he finds another chance somewhere eise. The man was electric at Baylor and his rookie season looked promising. The ‘skins paid a king’s ransom for the right to draft him and it looks like they will not see a return on that trade.

    Best fit would be where Chip Kelly lands.

  5. Mei mei says:

    sad… wonder if anyone will pick him up in the next / upcoming draft?

    • GorillaSmith says:

      I’m going with no. The draft is for college players. RG3 will land on his feet again. Teams like the Bills, Niners and Texans could all use him.

    The sign full of aphorisms was written by our very own Kent M. Keith of Honolulu……Google his name……..do it anyway.
