Griffin ready, relaxed for start of Redskins camp

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Robert Griffin III's burgundy shirt read "No Pressure. No Diamonds."

The Heisman Trophy knows it isn't quite that simple. Not for a quarterback in position to start for the Washington Redskins after being selected second overall in the NFL draft.

He still put up a pretty good argument Wednesday, a day before training camp opens.

"I was more anxious, maybe a little nervous for minicamp and OTAs," Griffin said, "I've been through the offense, got a taste for how fast the game is and just what I need to do as a quarterback to help this team win. I feel a lot more comfortable. It's actually more relaxing. There's nothing going on outside of football. It's all smiles in the locker room. In the short time, we've built great relationships."
