Video: QBs, Running Backs Work Together

Posted by Andrew Walker on June 1, 2012 – 3:14 pm

The quarterback-running back relationship has already begun to take shape as the Washington Redskins’ organized team activities head into their third and final week.

With the expected three-headed monster of Tim Hightower, Roy Helu¬†Jr. and Evan Royster in the Redskins’ backfield in 2012, the team can boast three backs — each with their own standout attributes — that can challenge the defense.

In Thursday’s OTAs, for example, the Redskins’ quarterbacks were working on their short pitches to the running backs, an alternative to the direct handoff that can give the runner more open field and better vision when getting in possession of the ball.

A fake pitch on this play, however, would also give a quarterback with rookie Robert Griffin III’s abilities to roll out and either use his legs to try to extend the play, or throw to a receiver down the field.

It’s just one of the several offensive weapons the Redskins and head coach Mike Shanahan hope to unleash in 2012.

Here’s the exclusive video of Thursday’s OTAs from our crew with Redskins.com TV:

    This looks so good, and that block by Cooley at the top looks great as well!
