Washington Redskins Morning Clips: 6/25

A morning roundup of what the local and national media have to say about the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, June 25, 2013.

--Happy June 25 to all, and a reminder that the Washington Redskins will take the field for the first practice of training camp in exactly one month. If all goes according to plan, both Robert Griffin III and the brand new Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center will be ready for Day 1.

--In the modern media era, one concern for celebrities is over-exposure and saturation in the media. It has been a long time since the Washington Redskins had a player worthy of over-exposure, but Robert Griffin III has been a national obsession this offseason, with weekly updates on a injury usually considered to take 9-12 months to heal. Have you heard too much about RG3?

--Redskins players and alumni are busy in the community during the offseason, as receiver Pierre Garcon donates jerseys to three local high schools and former Redskins defensive back Shawn Springs hosts a youth football camp.

--How can Robert Griffin III improve on a spectacular rookie season? How do the safety responsibilities change between the 3-4 and 4-3? Those answers and more in one reporter's mailbag.

--The million-dollar question remains: will Robert Griffin III be ready by Week 1? As a player who was also able to achieve the improbable, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson says he thinks RG3 will be ready.

--Who should ultimately replace Washington Redskins radio analyst Sam Huff on upcoming radio broadcasts? Former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann has reportedly expressed interest in the job.

--Another reporter makes the case for former tight end and fan favorite Chris Cooley, who remains a free agent one month away from training camp. Also, an ABC affiliate in Charlotte, N.C., the heart of Panthers' country, has reportedly signed on to broadcast Redskins' preseason games this season.

--Does anyone else find it hard to believe when a sports fan says they love two competing teams equally? Can you imagine a Redskins/Cowboys fan? Apparently, they exist.

--A Washington Post poll finds that an overwhelming majority of Washingtonians support the Washington Redskins' name and two-thirds would not change it.

--Meanwhile, the city of Richmond reportedly plans to charge for parking during training camp.
