A morning roundup of what the local and national media have to say about the Washington Redskins on Monday, June 10, 2013.
--He may have yet to take the practice fields at Redskins Park, but ESPN's Dan Graziano calls third-round tight end the rookie to keep an eye on during the offseason and preseason practices in Redskins Nation.
--Since taking over at general manager in 2010, Bruce Allen has targeted a number of players with ties to the greater-metro area, including veteran receiver Joshua Morgan. Morgan, who grew up a stone's throw from RFK Stadium, says he cherishes his D.C. connection.
--With almost every angle covered on Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's recovery, here's a story noting that Griffin III is wearing a different knee brace than at the end of last season. This would make sense, considering he is recovering from a much more serious injury than he was dealing with at the end of last season.
--Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan recently said that veteran safety Reed Doughty was playing like a special teams captain last season. CSN Washington's Tarik El-Bashir discusses how Reed Doughty hopes his experience will serve him well.
--While the quarterback may not have any doubts on whether he could be ready by the start of training camp, his head coach hit the brakes on that discussion, taking the 'let's wait and see' approach.
--With a new coach and new leadership, the Redskins special teams should have a distinctly different look under former Broncos linebacker Keith Burns.
--No big changes on the way for the Redskins in 2013: they retained most of the roster, much of the coaching staff, and changes to the stadium and team name are not happening. For Redskins fans, this is tradition they should find comfort in.
