CBS NFL Insider Jason La Canfora certainly knows the Washington Redskins organization, having covered the team for five seasons as the beat writer for the Washington Post.
La Canfora was at Saturday’s Washington Redskins-Indianapolis Colts preseason game — you know, the one in which rookie quarterbacks and top draft picks Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck squared off for the first time as professionals — and thought that although the Griffin III-Luck factor brought a lot of hype for one preseason game, the two young quarterbacks lived up to the buildup.
La Canfora was nice enough to spend a few minutes with the Redskins Blog after the game and talk about Griffin III-Luck, as well as the state of the Redskins moving forward. The complete audio of that interview is below, but here are a few snippets that I found interesting:

As the clock ticks down to the start of NFL free agency at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13, it’s time for the lists to start rolling out. In the next 120 hours, the best, worst, fastest, tallest, sweatiest, hairiest and most-overrated free agent lists will be compiled.
Thanks to a recent blog post at NFL.com, we can already report on the most-underrated prospective free agents. Highlighting the list is current Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker, along with another familiar face from bygone Redskins teams.
Here’s the scoop on why neither player has made a buzz this offseason, but may be worthy of a second-look: Read more »

[Editor's Note: Officially, no Redskins official is talking on the record about Robert Griffin III or a potential trade, so any rumors and reports – in any publication – are speculation at this point.]
This just in: Baylor prospect Robert Griffin III is an exciting playmaker at quarterback, and the Redskins could possibly have interest in drafting him.
Last season, Redskins quarterbacks combined for 14th in the NFL in total passing yards and 26th in aerial scoring. They threw for 3,773 yards, 19 touchdowns and 24 interceptions, and a rating of 73.3 yards.
For an unfair comparison, Griffin threw for 4,293 yards, 37 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also rushed for another 699 yards and 10 touchdowns, deep in the heart of Texas.
To be clear, this is not groundbreaking stuff. The Redskins are, and should be interested in any player that can help them upgrade their roster. A player of Griffin’s caliber is going to attract attention from all corners of the league, and the main question remaining is who will give up the most to acquire his talent?
A majority of NFL.com experts are now predicting that team is the Washington Redskins: Read more »
