Robert Griffin III Has Support In Decision To Say No To Indianapolis

Robert Griffin III made noise on a couple of fronts on Tuesday: he joined the world of Twitter (@RGIII) to express his opinions via a digital platform, and then turned down an invitation from the Indianapolis Colts to hold a private workout for the team.

Ian Rapoport, in his debut column as a reporter for the NFL Network, praised RG3 for taking a stand.

Despite acing nearly every pre-draft test, Griffin remains behind Andrew Luck on the Colts' draft board - or so it assuredly seems. While working out for the team - which insists it has not yet come to a final decision on which QB to take - would likely help his chances of supplanting Luck atop the draft, Griffin has opted not to do so. In fact, he won't hold a private workout with any team prior to the April festivities.

And Rapoport is fine with all of it. He lauds Griffin for denying Indianapolis, and notes that he has made it entirely clear that he's not just ready - he can't wait to be the Redskins quarterback.

Finally, some good quarterback news for a franchise desperate for it in recent years.
