“I’m going to go back and work out with some of my teammates who are coming into town with me to Waco,” RG3 told me. “So, it’ll be a busy time, but I’m gearing up for this long year that I know it’s going to be in the NFL with the long season and the type of grind I have to be ready to go through.”

He still has an apartment in Waco, where he attended Baylor University. So, he’ll live out his time there, but he won’t do it alone. As for names, the Heisman Trophy winner dropped Santana Moss, Pierre Garcon, Anthony Armstrong, Aldrick Robinson, Fred Davis, Brandon Banks and others who will join him.

RG3 wouldn’t say whose idea it was — “I don’t know who can take credit for it,” he said.

“But we knew we needed to get together,” Griffin told me. “I offered that they could come to Waco. We got workout facilities and everything. Shockingly, I convinced them to come to Waco, Texas, because not everybody wants to do that. I think next year we’ll do it somewhere more flashy, more vacation-like. Miami or Los Angeles, because I won’t have an apartment in Waco to move out of. But those guys made the sacrifice to come down and see me. So, it’s great that we’re already starting off on the right foot. … All those guys are coming down to throw. For those guys to show that they’re willing to come to Waco, Texas to workout with me lets me know they believe in me.“

And the team. Definitely a positive for the Redskins.
