Is RGIII taking a pass on Kim K?

Robert Griffin III dons 'Super Man' socks, but the young man is truly 'Super Human.' He has somehow managed to to avoid Kim Kardashian's praying mantis like grip over men, especially the species in the family, 'pro-athlts.' Not an easy feat.Remember when executive producer of NBC's 30 Rock, revealed Kardashian had been asking for the 411 on RG3 while both were at a 30 Rock taping the night of the NFL Draft?Well, because fans are just dying the status of 'KIM G III' (versus say...or I don't know...how Griffin is preparing for training camp, perhaps?) Griffin was asked about the topic on Rich Eisen's podcast via telephone on Tuesday."I heard the Kim Kardashian story and she was there and I guess that's all I could say about that. There is no there, there. So people can calm down, don't worry."Well, the engaged RGIII squashed that bug, right? Now, if anyone saw RG3's twitter account in early July, he did mention Kim K, but quickly tweeted the political, 'Hey people get the boy Bryce Harper in the Allstar Game!!!!'Mr. Griffin is flattered to say the least, but he is too smart to get tangled in her web. Let's leave this story as, 'To Be Continued'

Don't believe trade hype: Bruce Allen insists Kirk Cousins will be Redskins quarterback in 2017

Don't believe trade hype: Bruce Allen insists Kirk Cousins will be Redskins quarterback in 2017

Kirk Cousins will be the Redskins quarterback in 2017. Period. At least that's the word from team president Bruce Allen.

"That's why we franchised him," Allen said of Cousins.

Asked about numerous trade rumors and reports on the Redskins single season passing record holder, Allen dismissed them all.

"I can't keep up with the rumors," Allen said. "Kirk and I have talked almost a dozen times this offseason, and we get to laugh when we hear these different rumors. We haven't talked to anyone."

Allen has spoken with Cousins representatives a number of times this offseason, and the organization still wants to get a long-term deal done with their passer. 

"Our goal from the beginning has been long-term," the team president said. "I'm still hopeful and confident we'll do it."

The team could again use a tag on Cousins, an option Allen mentioned.

Exclusive: Redskins' Bruce Allen answers questions on Scot McCloughan's firing: 'We needed clarity'

Exclusive: Redskins' Bruce Allen answers questions on Scot McCloughan's firing: 'We needed clarity'

PHOENIX -- The Redskins suffered a public divorce when the team dismissed Scot McCloughan from his general manager position earlier this month. Bruce Allen, speaking with CSN in Phoenix at the NFL Owner's Meetings, explained just how hard the decision was.

"It was difficult because his father and brother and I worked together for a number of years with the Raiders and enjoyed success together. When I brought [Scot McCloughan] to the Redskins obvisouly I was hoping for a good marriage. It is disapointing."

Allen said his organization needed clarity once free agency opened up, and removing McCloughan provided that.

"I thought on the first day of the league year [March 9], the free agents we were bringing in, we needed clarity. And for our scouts to continue the good work we were doing we needed clarity for the season," he said. "The opening day made the decision."

Interstingly, Allen unequiovocally explained that McCloughan can go work elsewhere in the NFL.

"We hope it works out for Scot because now he can be hired by teams before the draft. He's available, and wish him the best."

Allen would not comment on any personal issues with McCloughan.

"I would never go into the personal conversations."
