Robert Griffin III fires back at Santana Moss over Mike Shanahan comments

Robert Griffin

Former Washington Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss said in a radio interview this week that Robert Griffin III went around bragging about being the reason Mike Shanahan got fired, and RG3 wasted no time firing back.

On Tuesday morning, Griffin addressed Moss’s comments on Twitter and said his former teammate “openly” lied.

RG3 then tried to tell his side of the story:

It was common knowledge that Griffin’s relationship with Shanahan ended on a sour note, and Moss said he believes Shanahan was robbed of what could have been some more good years with the Redskins. The ex-receiver claimed Griffin essentially went around gloating that Shanahan got fired because he chose to bench RG3, which is likely the part that angered Griffin. You can read more of what Moss had to say here.

Moss hinted that the way Griffin handled Shanahan’s firing was one of the reasons Jay Gruden was so hard on the quarterback. He also implied that it could be part of the reason why RG3 remains a free agent. This isn’t the first we have heard about Griffin acting smug over the influence he had with the Redskins.
