ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Robert Griffin III already has the No. 1 quarterback job with the Washington Redskins.

Coach Mike Shanahan said Sunday that the Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor will work with the starters when the Redskins begin full offseason practices later this month.

Said Shanahan: "He's the starter. Period."

Griffin completed a three-day rookie camp Sunday, a little over a week after he was selected second overall by the Redskins in the NFL draft.

Griffin wore a No. 10 jersey with "Griffin III" on the back - plus gold shoes with burgundy laces.
