      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On finding the balance of how much read option to use:
      “There’s no question, we’re still working on that balance right now. Today, he [Robert Griffin III] had the option to pull it. He pulled it and made a heck of a run, so he’s obviously very good at the read option. He’s proven that he can do it, but he’s also proven to come off a major injury here the last couple years. He’s healthy, but there will be a balance. I think we used some in Cincinnati with Andy Dalton and they used some here, so he’s got experience with it. He’s good at it. It’s another way to attack the defense and get the numbers in your favor offensively. How much we’ll do is going to be on a game plan basis and how he feels about it and how we feel about the actual play going in each week. But it’s something that will ...

      Tackle Trent Williams

      On how good of an athlete he is and the number of positions he thinks he could play:
      “First off, to answer your question, I think I’m a great athlete if you want to ask my opinion, but, I mean, I feel like I could play a lot of positions on the football field. Obviously I could play offensive tackle the best, but, you know, who knows? If I would have lost about 50 pounds, I probably could have been a nice tight end or maybe even an outside linebacker. Who knows, man.”

      On throwing the ball around at practice and if he could be a candidate for emergency quarterback:
      “I think I definitely could be [smiling]. I definitely ...

      I’m not talking about the team name, paleface. Not even close chief.
      But these Redskins, glorious and storied moniker and all, will be the most offensive team in pro football in 2014.

      I’m going to engage in some bold talk today. It’s true, my name is John and I’m a homer. I’m familiar with the 12 steps. I even watch ‘Intervention’ on A&E when time allows. But I don’t need Redskins fan rehab like I have for most of the 20+ year’s worth of offseasons. Not this time around. Something’s happening in DC, and that’s not just the Vicodin and Percocet talking.

      I don’t need my annual renewal of faith and belief that ‘this year could be the year ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On wide receiver Pierre Garçon:
      "He left practice early. He had a couple catches and then just had a little soreness in his hamstring. He'll be OK.”

      On if he was pleased with the amount of contact on the first day of players being in full pads:
      “Yeah, I thought so. I haven’t had a chance to watch the film but I thought the tempo was great. We had a couple of live sessions, some tackling drills and special teams, and then live sessions there at the end and some of them looked live – we're getting guys on the ground a lot which shouldn’t happen. ...

      Safety Ryan Clark

      On how having more padded practices can help the defense:
      “It’s always good to get out there in pads. I mean, you play football in pads. I talked about it yesterday. Everybody thought it was a big deal that I had on pants, and I was like, ‘Well, we don’t play in shorts.’ So I think it’s good that we get in pads. Physicality wins football games. We have to get used to being physical. We have to get used to hitting. The guys up front, whether it’s blocking or fitting in blocks, in the secondary, fitting up running backs, fitting ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On the emphasis on special teams and the influence of Special Teams Coordinator Ben Kotwica:
      "Well, we first of all have to sell the fact that it is [a] very important phase of a football game, equally as important as offense and defense. So there's a sense of accountability amongst our players that has to be taught and Coach Kotwica is a perfect guy to teach that. He's a go-getter, no question about it. He's very organized, and he is to the point, doesn’t beat around the bush. I think players respect him a lot in that regard, and him and Coach [Bradford] Banta have done a good job of rallying our troops, getting them in there and when they're in there doing a good ...

      Nose Tackle Barry Cofield

      On defensive end Jason Hatcher’s influence on the defense:
      "Yeah, you know, Hatch was one of the best acquisitions we’ve made since I’ve been here. He has a real unique skillset and I think that’s what our defense this year makes it, you know, better than the years past. It’s really going to utilize everybody’s strengths. Everybody’s skillsets will be optimized, so a guy like Hatch is going to be rushing, getting up the field. A guy like a Chris Baker is going to play with power and everything is going to be suited to that, to that guy’s particular needs.”

      On how he feels, when he was cleared ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On challenging the players and if results were achieved:
      "Yeah, I mean, we had to. It wasn’t a very good practice offensively, in a lot of respects. The weather had something to do with it – dropped balls – and I just thought the tempo wasn’t as clean and sharp as I would like it and had to challenge them. So they responded very well today."

      On his relationship with his brother, Jon, and Jon claiming to be a better athlete:
      "I'm a better athlete, number one. Let's get that clear. Jon, obviously, was three-and-a-half years older than me. I learned a lot from Jon, so being able to be on a staff – everything I've learned in pro football is from him basically. The core that I know about pro football is from Jon. Jon's ...
