Robert Griffin III Takes Apparent Shot At Mike Shanahan

Robert Griffin III recently made off-the-field headlines when he unveiled a new personal logo on Instagram in between shilling Subway on Twitter.

Of course, new coach Jay Gruden was asked about RGIII's preparation during an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

“He works out more than anybody I’ve ever seen,” Gruden said. “If I ever felt like that was an issue, or if he was spending more time trying to create logos than he was working out and getting himself ready to play, then there’d be an issue. But there’s no issue in my mind."

Griffin threw his support behind Gruden by retweeting ProFootballTalk's promotion of the story, and in doing so took a thinly veiled jab at the Redskins' previous regime.

It would be difficult to believe that Griffin was not needling former coach Mike Shanahan, whose relationship with the star quarterback fractured during a tumultuous 3-13 season. 

Who knows. I'm going to get a Flatizza.
