ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Robert Griffin III says he's going to remain his same candid self, even if it means people might take his words the wrong way.
The Washington Redskins quarterback said Wednesday that he considered whether to "go into a shell" and "Bill Belichick it" from now on. But he said: "I'm just going to continue to be who I am."
Griffin was stung last week by some of the reaction after he said he disagreed with coach Mike Shanahan's practice plan for the quarterback's return from knee surgery. Griffin felt the need to make a special statement the following day to say there was "no conflict" between him and Shanahan.
Griffin remains hopeful he will be cleared for the regular season opener. His backup, Kirk Cousins, has a sprained foot.
