In the nearly 24 hours since the Redskins made Robert Griffin III their No. 2 overall pick, the word has spread up and down the Redskins roster. Some players were quick to the draw with welcoming tweets, while others responded throughout the day today.
One thing to note is that it’s not necessarily the offensive players that are most excited about his new presence on the team. Indeed, it has been the defensive players that are the most outspoken in their support of the Redskins’ top pick:
RG3 COME HOME BABY!!!!—

That’s not to say that the offensive players weren’t excited about the future at the quarterback position. The Redskins’s weapons in the passing game were sure to welcome the future signal-caller to Washington:

And even the kicker showed his appreciation for Griffin, with the first team apparel challenge:
With a playmaker like Griffin in the fold, players have every right to be ecstatic looking forward to 2012 and beyond. That’s not to say that Griffin is ready to start in Washington, but his teammates are definitely ready to train with RG3.
