A morning roundup of what the local and national media have to say about the Washington Redskins on Friday, July 5, 2013.

--If you followed his story, you know his personality, so it should come as no surprise to Redskins fans that sophomore running back Alfred Morris is really excited for training camp.

--It's a stretch as far as offseason content is concerned, but according to one set of NFL stat geeks, the Redskins could potentially have 10 Pro Bowlers for the upcoming season.

--One element of Robert Griffin III's recovery that has been conspicuously missing from the conversation is the possibility that he could begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list. One local reporter explains why this option doesn't make much sense.

--Looking ahead to the beginning of the 2013 season, here's a review of the offseason moves made by the Denver Broncos.

--At right cornerback, Josh Wilson is likely to start, but who fills in behind him? A look ahead at one of the training camp competitions that may not be receiving as much of the attention.

--With a look into the history of the franchise, CSNWashington sits down with Redskins' great John Riggins, who said he is most proud of the moment he went in the huddle and told his teammates to "give me the ball." They did, and it worked.

--With rumors out of the Redskins' reported focus group posing a question about playing a game at RFK, one local reporter throws water on the likelihood of this scenario ever playing out.

--It seemed like almost everyone in Washington had asked or been asked about the health of Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. To ensure that everyone has now been asked, a SportsCenter reporter asks Nationals' outfielder Bryce Harper about RG3.

--With most Redskins stories looking ahead, here's a look back at the frustrating loss from the Redskins' Week 3 contest against the Cincinnati Bengals.

--Serve your country and play football at the same time? Apparently that isn't enough for some fans, as Redskins fullback and Navy lieutenant Eric Kettani tells ESPN that he gets hate mail from some.

--With all of the talk of training camp battles, one national writer doesn't find a single one worth mentioning in his holistic team training camp preview. I wonder how Roy Helu Jr. and Leonard Hankerson feel about the snub?

--There has been much debate over whether or not the Redskins can repeat as NFC East Champions. One national reporter makes the chance that not only can they repeat, but the coaching staff can't wait to get out there and get to work.
