The inevitable is bound to happen with the era of Robert Griffin III coming to an end pending his release.
Jay Gruden said himself, “His future with the Washington Redskins is what it is.”
Since Robert Griffin III’s knee injury in the playoffs his rookie year, he has not showed the electrifying playmaking abilities he brought to the gridiron that season and has lost his starting job for good in Washington.
With his pending release this offseason, Griffin will be looking for a new football home for the 2016 season and he will have limited options.
A few of the teams that could be a good fit are the Houston Texans, Philadelphia Eagles, and the Cleveland Browns.
The Houston Texans have been shuffling around quarterbacks from Brian Hoyer to Brandon Weeden. Bill O’Brien has a strong history with quarterbacks and may take a chance on Griffin in his system.
The Philadelphia Eagles are looking for a new coach and this new coach is going to want his own quarterback. Depending on the system, Griffin could become a fit.
The Cleveland Browns may also be looking for a new coach and with questions around Johnny Manziel and veteran Josh McCown. Griffin could be another veteran option to compete with this group.
Griffin does not lack confidence as he said “I still view myself as the best because that’s what I work toward every single day.” He will get another opportunity in the NFL, but the question is which uniform will he be wearing in 2016.
