“He said, ‘Here’s these pads. This will help you on breaking those arm tackles,’” Griffin recalled with a smile.
And Redskins veterans soon will see Griffin The Showman in his element. Rookie shows are scheduled to begin Tuesday night. The rookies have one task: entertain the veterans.
Griffin, who wrote a song for his fiancée as part of his marriage proposal, has his act planned out.
“I think I’m going to go with some Temptations, some ‘My Girl,’ hopefully get the whole room singing, and then we’ll move on from there,” he said.
“Hopefully I don’t get booed off the stage.”
