RGIII hopes to pick Brady’s brain during workouts

RICHMOND, Va. — The Washington Redskins held the first of three joint practices with the perennial AFC East champion New England here Monday and quarterback Robert Griffin III was happy to have a brief chance to talk to his Patriots counterpart Tom Brady, who started five Super Bowls and won three.

“He was saying that he’s been in the same offense for 15 years, which is astounding,” said Griffin, who is learning the second offense of his three NFL seasons.

“That’s amazing. ... He said this is only my third year and ... I have a lot of football left in me. That’s good coming from a guy like him. Hopefully I get a chance to sit down with him if he’s not too busy. We’ll both be watching a lot of film getting ready for (today’s) practice.”

Some might think Griffin, who was injured last year, and most of his teammates might want to forget that ugly 3-13 experience that was the 2013 season.

But not Redskins nose tackle Barry Cofield, who won a Super Bowl with the New York Giants in 2006.“We reference last year all the time,” Cofield said. “Believe it or not, we did some positive things last year, even defensively. You know, we had some good snaps, especially towards the end of the season. You know, we actually played some really good football at times.”
