RG III urges calm as Redskins expectations rise with Jackson

Published Add your comment

Washington Redskins signed DeSean Jackson late Tuesday in a great move for the franchise, but quarterback Robert Griffin III remained coy about his team's chances in the 2014 NFL season.

The acquisition is interesting for a variety of different reasons. In signing for the Redskins, he has remained in the NFC East and will face his old team twice next season. 

But most importantly the signing gives RG3 his first real look at a premier wide-receiver that he can combine with. 

Griffin's short NFL career has been played without a recognised number one wide-out, but now with Jackson on board, expectations for the QB and Washington to thrive in 2014 have naturally raised their head. 

The Redskins QB admitted in an interview with the Washington Post that it's premature to be talking up their chances for next season. 

Even though the 24-year-old revealed his delight at the move, he insisted that his team haven't won anything yet.

"It's an exciting time to be a Redskins fan and a part of this team because of the firepower that we have," Griffin told the Washington Post.

"Everyone needs to understand that we haven't won anything yet, and these next few months will be about building those bonds and chemistry so that we can."
