RGIII Gets Standing Ovation at Redskins Event

*His coaches may have given up on him, but quarterback Robert Griffin III received a standing ovation Wednesday from about 600 people – including his teammates – who attended the Washington NFL team’s Welcome Home Luncheon.

Before the standing O, RGIII walked into the corporate-driven luncheon with new starter Kirk Cousins and returning backup Colt McCoy.

Griffin’s 15-second ovation came when Griffin appeared on stage alone, according to ESPN.com. He reportedly delivered a 40-second speech after receiving the Redskins’ Salute Award for his involvement with the military community. He thanked teammates who have helped lead him “in the right direction” and helped him use the platform he was given.

Griffin lost his starting job earlier this week when coach Jay Gruden announced Cousins as the leader. Final cuts must be made by 4 p.m. Saturday, and there’s a chance the Redskins will either trade Griffin or release him.
