RG3 clears out Redskins locker, leaves note

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    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.”
