Redskins | Father acknowledges Robert Griffin must change style

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's (knee) father, Robert Griffin II, acknowledged that his son's take-off-and-run playing style will have to change and that he's willing to make those changes to prolong his career. Griffin added that the Redskins probably have already started making changes in the playbook. "Robert didn't have a high passer rating just from running the football," Griffin said. "That's something that the organization and Robert really need to address. With his health, his longevity, that's probably already started. We'll see. I know that he is taking in everything that was told to him. He's definitely going to protect himself."

Fantasy Tip: Even if Griffin makes a full recovery in time to start the 2013 season, will he still be the dynamic dual-threat quarterback he was during his rookie campaign? That's the question owners must ask themselves. The Redskins may scale back the playbook in order to protect their franchise quarterback. Follow this story as it develops during the course of the offseason.
