ASHBURN, Va. (AP) —“It’s kind of something I’m comfortable with,” he said. “I think it was Deion (Sanders) who said if you look good you feel good, if you feel good you play good. That’s kind of what that is for me. But other than that, no real particular reason.”
But then he added: “I can throw with it, just in case you were wondering.”
That’s right. He learned how to throw left-handed from his left-handed father. Griffin said he can launch the ball “30, 40 yards” as a lefty, but he laughed that it’s “probably not” going to end up in a game plan.
Asked about the craziest message he’s received over the last few days, Griffin said he keeps getting ones on his phone from a salesman.
“He sends pictures of jewelry all the time. I’m not a jewelry guy, though,” Griffin said. “If it was free, I’d take it. It’s not free, so I’m not going to buy it.”
Asked to pick out one play that meant a lot to him from Sunday, Griffin went for the unorthodox.
“As a quarterback, you always want to do something that’s non-quarterbackish,” Griffin said. “So I did throw a block for Alfred (Morris) down the field. I was pretty proud of that moment, and I didn’t get injured — so nobody’s going to be chewing me out for that.”
Griffin was less talkative about one topic. He has a deal with adidas, and he covered up the Nike swoosh on the Redskins warm-up shirt he wore on the field before Sunday’s game. Such counter-marketing tactics do not sit well with the league office.
“I’ve not heard from the league yet,” said, Griffin, who didn’t cover the swoosh on his practice jersey Wednesday. “That’s all I’ll say about that.”
