Redskins coach Mike Shanahan confirmed Sunday that rookie Robert Griffin III will open full-squad OTAs with the first-team offense.
Not that there was ever any doubt. "He's the starter. Period," Shanahan said. It's notable because the Skins aren't making Griffin "compete" with Rex Grossman, and he'll handle a full dose of reps. They're not wasting any time. At the Redskins' rookie minicamp, Griffin drew raves for his live arm, ball placement on over-the-shoulder throws, and immediate understanding of the offense.
