Tim Brown the former Oakland Raider talked to ESPN960 on Thursday, and he was asked about RG3. His words were a little harsh, but he did not hold back. He went all in on RG3, and it makes you wonder if others feel the same way?
“I know RG3 well enough to know he’s a little different. He’s maybe not the brother you hang out with in the locker room, but from that standpoint that’s something he has to work on. If he’s going to be a leader he has to be a leader of everyone in the locker room and not just one or two guys in the locker room.”
When asked how Griffin hung out with the other Heisman guys, Brown said, “He’s tough. He’s a different guy. There’s no laughter, there’s no let me get in here with the boys. Everyone’s telling jokes with each other and you say something to him and it’s like, ‘Oh, wow, really?’ Instead of taking it further what happens is that everyone is like he’s not in the room yet so you end up talking around him the whole time and that’s not cool. Everyone else is in here having fun and having a jovial time. That’s something he has to understand. This is a team sport. If it was golf, brother, I’d say go for it. But if you play a team sport and want to be a leader of a team sport, you have to loosen up a little bit.”
