Redskins owner Dan Snyder sees the buzz Robert Griffin III has created. But Snyder isn’t about to place grand expectations on the rookie quarterback’s shoulders.
“Everything takes time as you know,” Snyder said. “We’re excited to have him and with coach [Mike] Shanahan, everything we’ve built, we feel good about the future.”
Snyder spoke to the Redskins media for the first time in more than a year after Fan Appreciation Day at Redskins Park. Griffin was a primary topic.
“It’s obviously exciting for everybody and it’s a big deal,” Snyder said. “We’re thrilled with him as a person and what he stands for as a Redskin. It’s exciting for all Redskins nation.”
It’s not the first time buzz surrounded the Redskins in Snyder’s tenure.
“This is [a] top pick in the draft and a Heisman winner and a quarterback,” Snyder said. “It’s a big deal for everyone and for Redskins nation it’s as good as you get. It’s exciting for us.”
