      Quarterback Robert Griffin III

      On wearing one white cleat and one black cleat:
      “That’s something I’ve done since college. I call it the yin and the yang, white and black working together. We’re all brothers. We’re doing it together.”

      On so much being made about his ability to read defenses and the praise Head Coach Jay Gruden and Offensive Coordinator Sean McVay have given him in that regard:
      “You don’t go from the ability to read defenses one year and not have that ability the next, so I don’t believe that one bit. And it’s really just a good thing to have two coaches that believe in you. Sean and Jay have done a great job. They’ve given me a lot on my shoulders in that quarterback room and I cherish that. You want to be asked to do more or just to do the bare minimum. As a quarterback, you have to have that fire in your heart that says ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On having to adjust the schedule on the first day:

      “Yeah, it’s rough, but we’re going to go inside to the convention center for the walkthrough. Expecting a big rainstorm here, maybe some lightning. Being that it’s just a walkthrough, I think we can get enough done.”

      On if he had to adjust the morning practice because of the weather:

      “No, we were real fortunate. Other than the wet ball drill – you know, dropping some balls and fumbling a couple snaps – we were able to get all the reps in, so we had a lot of learning that we could get accomplished on tape. So we were very fortunate to get every play in.”

      On what he would like cornerback DeAngelo Hall to do as he steps into a larger leadership ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On who will not be available tomorrow:

      “Jason Hatcher, Leonard Hankerson, Stephen Bowen and Mo [Maurice] Hurt.”

      On if he expects defensive end Jason Hatcher to play at some point during camp:

      “I do. He’s being monitored closely by Larry [Hess], our trainer, and as soon as they see fit, he’ll be ready to go. But we want to make sure he’s obviously ready to go.”

      On offensive lineman Maurice Hurt:

      “He came in a little bit out of shape. We’ll just go from there and make sure we monitor his condition moving forward.”

      On starting camp:

      “We’re fired up. Everybody showed up on time. Everybody’s eager, ready to roll. We had a great offseason program, like I said. This is the beginning of something special, we hope. These guys are excited, like I said. The coaches are excited. I think the city is excited. Now it’s just a matter of putting the work in and getting better every day. That’s the motto.”

      On if he expects defensive end Stephen Bowen and wide receiver Leonard Hankerson to be available during ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On what advice he received from his brother, Jon, who attended practice:
      “Not much, he just in came in to watch how we’re doing things. He’s still an avid football fan obviously. He likes to stay up-to-date on what’s going on around the league. Obviously his sons are close to my sons, so it’s good to get together with him.”

      On if his brother’s presence caused flashbacks:
      “Yeah, I mean there are certain things that trigger your memory, you know coaching points that he’s had throughout the history of some of these plays that we’ve run. I can remember and [it] brings back memories, and they’re good, solid, valid points that you’d like to bring up to your team and pass them along to the next group of guys doing them. So it’s always ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On wide receiver DeSean Jackson:
      "DeSean has a minor tweak, I guess, but all hamstrings are different, and he's rehabbing with [Head Athletic Trainer] Larry [Hess] and hopefully he'll be back next week starting the final week of the OTA."

      On bringing in safety Ryan Clark at his age after facing him twice a year in the AFC North:
      "I wanted him here so I wouldn't have to see him ever again, you know except on gameday on our sideline. He's a great player, I always had a ton of respect for all the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defensive players – going against them two times a year. And he's the leader over there. The free safety, he can obviously make great tackles in the box, a free safety and he can cover some ground and he's a good communicator ...
