The Washington Redskins did not include quarterback Robert Griffin III as a core player in their letter to fans.
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has been a colossal bust for the past two seasons after winning Offensive Rookie of the Year honors in 2012.

Griffin was selected with the second overall pick by the Redskins after they traded multiple draft picks to the St. Louis Rams, and this move has come back to haunt them thus far.
Tensions have reportedly brewed in the Redskins’ locker room due to Griffin’s teammates not respecting him, and even head coach Jay Gruden publicly spoke out against him.
The Redskins appear prepared to move on without their failed franchise quarterback as soon as his rookie contract expires in 2016, according to a team letter to fans.
“Head coach Jay Gruden, new general manager Scot McCloughan, and defensive coordinator Joe Barry will lead a nucleus of Ryan Kerrigan, DeSean Jackson, plus Pro Bowlers Trent Williams and Alfred Morris. The Redskins are poised to rebound next season!”
The Redskins may choose to draft a quarterback in the 2015 draft to provide competition for Griffin since it is now put up or shut up time for him.
