News: Speaking at the NFL combine, coach Jay Gruden noted that he anticipates Griffin being Washington's starter at QB heading into the 2015 season. "Robert ended the season as our starter and we anticipate that going forward," Gruden indicated Wednesday. "He'll be the No. 1 guy."
Impact: Following a 2014 campaign in which the team started three signal-callers �- Griffin, Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy -- Gruden has for now, at least, quieted a potential QB controversy leading up to the 2015 campaign. Per NFL.com, the decision to stick with Griffin seems largely tied to the team's "large-scale investment" in the QB, along with a lack of viable alternatives at this stage, either in-house or in free agency. Griffin is coming off a 2014 season in which he threw for 1,694 yards, to go along with just four touchdowns and six interceptions in nine games. He also ran 38 times for 176 yards and a TD in that span.
