WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Lost in the madness of the Robert Griffin III autograph signing this weekend was the fact running back Roy Helu was also available for signatures and photo ops.

And while RGIII wasn’t made available for comment, Helu was more than willing to talk about the madness surrounding the Heisman Trophy winner’s impending NFL arrival.

Unlike the bulk of fans attending Saturday’s card and memorabilia show, Helu wasn’t 100 percent confident Griffin will be on the Redskins roster next season. Then again, he’s not 100 percent certain he won’t be.

He is, however, completely comfortable with whomever the Redskins select with the second overall pick, whether it be Griffin or Andrew Luck.

“I think they’d be a great fit, whoever comes here,” Helu said. “Both are quality quarterbacks. Both we couldn’t go wrong with. Both have strengths and weaknesses that are pretty awesome.”

Beyond Griffin or Luck, the second-year back feels the biggest factor in next season’s success will be the offensive line.

“I think the biggest thing is our offensive line, of how good of an offense we really could be,” Helu stated. “I think that adds to the competition and depth. Competition is really what makes any athlete or team better.”

Depleted by injuries, a patchwork line arguably performed at its best late last season.

Helu ran for 100 or more yards in a string of three straight games last season, beginning with a 108-yard performance against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12.

He finished his rookie season with 640 yards and two touchdowns on 141 carries in 15 appearances with five starts.

As for the recent salary cap adjustments levied against the Redskins and Dallas Cowboys, the Nebraska product hasn’t really paid much attention. In fact, he joked he was probably the worst person to ask about it.

“I’ve only heard about it through my cousins and saw when I was walking by a TV,” he said. “I have no clue… I know it was us and Dallas that got penalized on cap room, but I have no idea what that means.”
