Washington Redskins Morning Clips: 7/10

A morning roundup of what the local and national media have to say about the Washington Redskins on Wednesday, July 10, 2013.

--Training camp will be grueling for all members of the Redskins' 90-man roster, but especially so for rookie safety Phillip Thomas, entering his first camp. But on the other side of camp lies a very real possibility of starting.

--With a cursory look ahead to each team's training camp, one national site reports that optimism is high in Washington and that the front office rates incumbent right tackle very highly.

--One writer asserts that Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon is the key to the team's offense. In case you need evidence, the Redskins were 9-1 with No. 88 in the lineup last season.

--Despite the fact that rookie running back Alfred Morris statistically clobbered classmates Trent Richardson and Doug Martin, the debate rages on over who fantasy owners should trust on their draft boards this season.

--A look at the psychological and sociological reasons behind RG3-mania that swept the NFL last year, with a look at a few unusual examples.

--More specifically, another local reporter delves into why Washingtonians have embraced the wedding of franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III.

--After only one season in the NFL, is it too soon to classify quarterback Robert Griffin III as a franchise QB? Some national reporters say not yet, while one local reporter asks why not?

--It's a good thing the NFL-imposed $36 million salary cap penalty expires after the season, because the Redskins reportedly have eight incumbent starters hitting free agency next year. With lots of money to spend and some worthy recipients, how will the Redskins look to do business?

--One of the most recent controversies surround the Washington Redskins is "likely to get thrown out" of court.
