Redskins leave RGIII out of promotional material sent to fans

It is turbulent times for the Washington Redskins right now as they enter a crucial off-season of rebuilding after going 4-12 last season.

The Redskins appeared to struggle in every position but there was without doubt, one that that stood out above the rest.

The battle at quarterback in Washington was one that continued to puzzle players and fans alike as the Redskins continued to rotate their talent around.

The biggest question from the season regarded their big name star in Robert Griffin III who once again had an on and off season.

But now it appears that the writing may be on the wall for RGIII who was Washington's first round draft pick in 2012 and the shining jewel of Washington.


RGIII had been used so many times to attempt to lure new talent to the Redskins organisation and even used to make calls to perspective free agents.

Current Redskins stars like DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts have previously spoken about how much those calls meant to them and how much they influenced their decisions.

However, the Redskins today sent a letter to premium seat club membership holders listing some of the players that they should keep an eye out for next season.

Convincing fans to pay to come and watch the Redskins can't be an easy task right now but flaunting their best players is surely the best way to convince people to do just that.

On the letter to their fans were Alfred Morris, Trent Williams, DeSean Jackson and linebacker Ryan Kerrigan - no RGIII.

Perhaps the exclusion of their once popular quarterback is a sign that his days may be numbered in Washington.

A look ahead?

With Super Bowl XLIX now out of the way, all of the attention now turns towards the NFL's annual recruiting drive known as the draft.

With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers currently holding the number one pick in the 2015 draft, the question becomes, could the Redskins trade up?

The Buccaneers need a quarterback and if the Redskins make an offer that includes RGIII, it's not unlikely to see it accepted.

The Redskins would first of all have to secure the future of Colt McCoy who is set to hit free agency this off-season before thinking of trading away RGIII though or they could find themselves in need of a QB.

Should the Redskins try and trade Griffin to the Buccs for the number one pick, the question becomes who do the Buccaneers want more? RGIII, Marcus Mariota or Jameis Winston?
