Redskins coach Jay Gruden sits down with Chick Hernandez

Jay Gruden knows a lot of the coaches around Redskins Park from previous jobs and he had a chance to meet a few players today.

However, he has not yet talked to arguably the franchise’s most important player.

When asked if he had any interaction with quarterback Robert Griffin III Jay Gruden gave a somewhat surprising response.

“I have not talked to Robert,” Gruden said.  “I look forward to it, though.”

Griffin has been out of town since the day after the season ended. According to a report in Pro Football Talk Griffin had no role in the decision process that led to Gruden’s hire.

Gruden did say that he is excited about the prospect of working with Griffin and that the second-year player has “every trait that a quarterback has to have to be successful.”
