• Could Redskins Be In Trouble Letting RGIII Learn the Team’s Offense Before the Draft?

    After it was recently reported that Kyle Shanahan will be heading twice a week to Robert Griffin III’s home to learn the Redskins’ offense, there have been talks if that violates the NFL rules.

    However, according to NFL Network’s Albert Breer, there won’t be a problem with Washington visiting draft prospect on their campus multiple times.

    “There is no issue,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told Breer.  “College-eligible players can be timed, tested and interviewed in their hometown or college town.  And it can be done on more than one occasion.  It is standard procedure.  All clubs do it.”

    However, what if all of this could be a time-waster? Jim Irsay has been known to have made crazy decisions before, like in 1999 when he drafted Edgerrin James over top-running-back Ricky Williams. It turned out to be a success for Indy, and maybe they could end up drafting RGIII over Andrew Luck.

    But what if Griffin likes Washington instead?

    “It wouldn’t scare him off,” former Colts coach Tony Dungy told PFT.

    We’re going to be in for an interesting draft this month, folks.
