RGIII does jumping jacks

Sure, the Redskins picked a bunch of defensive prospects in Saturday’s later rounds. But defensive prospects are for Xs and Os nerds. Give me images of RGIII doing jumping jacks at FedEx Field.

“I’m good,” Griffin told fans at the team’s draft day party, via Kent Babb. “You guys saw me jumping….I mean, I can run a little bit, so I’ll be good. No worries. I’ll take it slow, but at the same time, I’ll be ready to go….We’re going to bounce on next year, too. Everybody start jumping, baby. Let’s go!”

Griffin also did some sort of running-in-place thing, as shown in this image. He said the Redskins “made Cowboys Stadium our home, and that’s what we want to continue to do.” He said “I’m all in for week one, just like you guys are.” And his final message was “You can’t leave here without saying HTTR, Hail to the Redskins baby,” and then he jogged off.

Videos of all of his calisthenics are below. Watch his full remarks here. GIF via SB Nation.
