RICHMOND, Va. — Robert Griffin III took another shot at explaining his relationship with Mike Shanahan on Tuesday, making a surprise appearance in the Washington Redskins media room to proclaim that “there is no conflict” between quarterback and coach.
“Just want everybody to know if there’s any questions about if there’s a rift between me and Coach, or if there’s a conflict, there is no conflict,” Griffin said. “Coaches coach. I’m the player. Coach has a plan, and I’m abiding by that plan. I’m doing everything the coaches are asking me to do. I trust those guys. They want me to have a long career. And that’s what part of this plan is about.”
Griffin said comments he made during his weekly news conference on Monday have been misinterpreted. Griffin said Monday that he didn’t like his restrictive practice plan and didn’t completely understand Shanahan’s reasoning behind it.
