If Robert Griffin III had a vote for Offensive Rookie of the Year, he’d pick a member of the Washington Redskins.
No, he wouldn’t choose himself. He’d go with running back Alfred Morris.
Griffin III joined the NFL Network’s “NFL AM” early this morning and talked about that — and a variety of other subjects. About picking Morris for Rookie of the Year:
“My vote would go to Alfred Morris, because I wouldn’t vote for myself,” Griffin III said. “I think that’s extremely conceited and I’m not that person, so I’d vote for Alfred Morris. He’s my running back, he’s had a very quiet, but very great season for a running back and I’m proud to have him on this team.”
Griffin III also talked about being compared to Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck. Luck, of course, was selected No. 1 overall in April’s NFL Draft; Griffin III was picked second.
“Going into college, I was compared to Terrelle Pryor a lot, and now coming into the pros, it’s going to be me and Andrew Luck,” Griffin III said. “And like I tell everybody, I don’t ever root against quarterbacks and I want him to have a great career as well. If they are going to continue to compare us, hopefully we are the best comparison of all time.”
Griffin III also talked about the Redskins’ playoff chances, his style, and several other topics. Here’s the video:
