  Ravens | Teams looking at Robert Griffin    Sat Sep 1, 12:04 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Robert Griffin III is drawing trade interest, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Footballguys view: Griffin looked good in the preseason as he tries to get his pro career back on track. With Teddy Bridgewater getting traded to the Saints, other teams in need of a veteran backup could look to Baltimore and the price tag for Griffin. While Bridgewater fetched the Jets a third round pick, Griffin would be a lower cost...perhaps a late round pick for the Ravens.

  Ravens | Robert Griffin doesn't play    Thu Aug 30, 11:06 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Robert Griffin III didn't play in the preseason finale against the Washington Redskins Thursday, Aug. 30, but head coach John Harbaugh said the decision to sit Griffin isn't an indication of future roster decisions.

Footballguys view: Lamar Jackson has shown enough to be a backup even though it might be rough at first if he had to fill in for Joe Flacco. Griffin could catch on elsewhere if the Ravens let him go.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco more motivated    Wed Jun 13, 01:50 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco appears to be more motivated this offseason as a result of the Ravens drafting QB Lamar Jackson and signing QB Robert Griffin III, according to FS Eric Weddle.

Footballguys view: Flacco has to be feeling the pressure after the Ravens added two quarterbacks this offseason, one (Jackson of course) with a first-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft. Under contract through 2020, it seems like Flacco realizes the league is called 'not for long' for a reason. We'll see if Flacco can stay sparked through the 2018 season with so much about his future riding on this season.

  Ravens | RG III splitting backup reps    Fri May 25, 10:24 AM

Baltimore Ravens QBs Robert Griffin III and Lamar Jackson split the second-team repetitions Thursday, May 24.

Footballguys view: Griffin is trying to get his pro career back on track while the rookie Jackson is trying to show that he can develop as the team's QB of the future. Both have similar skill sets, but Jackson is much more athletic.

  Ravens | Robert Griffin could make team    Mon May 7, 03:05 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Robert Griffin III has a chance to make the 53-man roster depending on how QB Lamar Jackson progresses during training camp and the preseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: Jackson has great upside as a quarterback in the NFL. However, his skill set may require some sharpening at the pro level. Griffin has the veteran experience like the guarantee on the box on 'Tommy Boy' and he could easily be the primary backup to Joe Flacco while Jackson develops.

  Ravens | Robert Griffin III signs with Ravens    Wed Apr 4, 11:55 AM

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Browns) agreed to a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday, April 4. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Ravens were interested in Griffin last year. Their quarterback coach James Urban and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg were both on the Eagles staff when Michael Vick had a successful comeback. Griffin should be the backup to Joe Flacco, but is unlikely to see the field unless Flacco gets hurt or bombs this year.

  NFL | Robert Griffin's career not over yet?    Tue Dec 12, 03:00 PM

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Browns) said he worked out for the Los Angeles Chargers last summer, almost played for the Baltimore Ravens and has received 'interesting offers' from other teams.

Footballguys view: So long as Griffin keeps himself in shape, there might be a team that gives him a chance to compete in camp next year. The Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2012, Griffin took the league by storm in his first year. Injuries and problems with head coach Mike Shanahan caused his career to go off track.

  Ravens | Baltimore may work out Robert Griffin    Sun Jul 30, 05:56 PM

The Baltimore Ravens are considering the possibility of working out free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Browns), according to owner Steve Bisciotti.

Footballguys view: Colin Kaepernick was also a possibility, but it appears that fan reaction might have shut down that plan. Griffin hasn't been able to stay healthy in games for years, but he could help the team with practice and preseason reps while Joe Flacco recovers. If he has to start any games in the regular season for the Ravens, they are in trouble.

  Chargers | RG3 has 'positive workout' with Bolts    Tue Jul 25, 09:02 PM

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Browns) reportedly had a positive workout with the Los Angeles Chargers on Tuesday, July 25, although the team opted not to make an immediate move.

Footballguys view: It's a start for Griffin as he's gotten little interest on the open market. All it takes is an injury or two in training camp to change the market for the veteran quarterback. We'll see if he can get a shot with a new team at some point before the start of the regular season.

  Chargers | Robert Griffin to work out for Chargers    Mon Jul 24, 07:15 PM

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Browns) is scheduled to work out for the Los Angeles Chargers Tuesday, July 25, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Griffin has gotten no love on the open market. Released by the Browns in March, Griffin has not been linked to any team. There were rumblings about perhaps being a fit in Seattle, but nothing ever came of that. The Chargers have Kellen Clemens and Eli Jenkins behind Philip Rivers.

  NFL | Robert Griffin III attracting mild interest    Sun Jul 23, 02:25 AM

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Browns) has started to attract 'mild interest' from NFL clubs, four months following his March release from Cleveland.

Footballguys view: As teams start to see their backup quarterback situations up close in camp, that mild interest could heat up. Griffin is definitely good enough to be a #2 for some teams, but his durability has been far from reliable. There's a chance he won't be signed until midseason, but Griffin can still help a team.

  Seahawks | Seattle looking at free-agent quarterbacks    Mon May 15, 02:12 PM

Free-agent QBs Colin Kaepernick (49ers) and Robert Griffin III (Browns) have drawn interest from the Seattle Seahawks as possible backups to QB Russell Wilson.

Footballguys view: It's a smart move for the Seahawks. Last year's backup QB, Trevone Boykin, was arrested twice in 11 days back in late March and early April. Boykin was undraftd out of TCU in 2016, and he's incredibly raw at the position. Getting a player like Kaepernick or Griffin would insure the team has valuable veteran depth behind Wilson.

  NFL | Texans, Browns cycling through QBs    Sun Mar 12, 03:51 PM

The Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns will become the 10th and 11th teams since 2002 to start five different Week 1 starters in as many years following the departures of Brock Osweiler and Robert Griffin III, respectively.

Footballguys view: The Browns are a laughing stock, but at least the Texans were a playoff team in 2016. We should see the Browns make a run at Jimmy Garoppolo (Patriots) either this year via trade or next year via free agency. The Texans are in the Tony Romo (Cowboys) sweepstakes, but they're also likely to draft a rookie QB with a premium pick.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III was released by the team Friday, March 10.

  Browns | Robert Griffin III likely to be cut    Thu Mar 9, 03:48 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III is expected to be released after Cleveland acquired QB Brock Osweiler.

Footballguys view: This is a bit of a shock if the Browns are thinking of moving Osweiler. On the other hand, it would be a strong signal they will grab a quarterback early in this draft.

  Browns | Cleveland wants another quarterback    Thu Mar 2, 03:30 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III and company may have more competition in 2017. Head coach Hue Jackson said the Browns will aggressively pursue a quarterback this offseason, but added that they'll be fine if Griffin and QBs Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan comprise the Browns' quarterbacks.

Footballguys view: The Browns know they don't have a surefire answer under center yet. So this is no shock. That said, there are so many problems to fix on this team, a franchise quarterback might not be the highest priority. They need a line to protect him, receivers to throw too and a defense to keep them in the game. All things equally important at this point in the rebuild.

  Browns | Robert Griffin III expected for program    Wed Mar 1, 12:08 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III is expected to take part in the April offseason program, according to director of football operations Sashi Brown. Brown wouldn't commit to the $750,000 bonus Griffin is in line for in March.

Footballguys view: The Browns QB situation is like a rorschach test. It can be a lot of different things. Griffin may take part in the offseason program, but he's no lock for the 53-man roster.

  Browns | Robert Griffin's future uncertain    Wed Feb 8, 02:27 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III is scheduled to receive a $750,000 bonus on March 11, but the Browns may consider releasing him before that date if they do not think he is in their plans.

Footballguys view: The Browns want to make a move for Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason. Griffin should not be in their long-term plans. Griffin is scheduled to make $6 million in 2017, which would be too much for a backup quarterback of his caliber.

  Browns | Robert Griffin III decent in finale    Sun Jan 1, 05:52 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III threw for 232 yards and had two touchdowns and an interception in a 27-24 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Griffin has a six million dollar price tag next year, but the Browns don't have a better plan except maybe Cody Kessler at quarterback next year. The #1 pick will give them their choice of the 2017 draft quarterbacks, but the early outlook is that there might not be a passer worth the pick.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) likely will start against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 17 as long as he does not suffer a setback.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) was cleared to return to practice Thursday, Dec. 29, by an independent neurologist.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III will start again in Week 16. He will be on a short leash, however, with QB Cody Kessler ready to take over.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III went 17-for-28 for 196 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 15. He also rushed for 48 yards and one touchdown on eight carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Griffin was a tough runner and took a few hits that made you wonder if he was going to get up and that made him a strong Week 15 fantasy play despite the meager passing numbers. He'll a streaming option against the Chargers next week.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III needs to show 'a jump in performance' against the Buffalo Bills in Week 15, according to head coach Hue Jackson, and offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said the team is counting on Griffin to be more consistent.

Footballguys view: The team may be counting on him, but fantasy owners should not. You likely have better options at quarterback in Week 15.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III will be the starting quarterback against the Buffalo Bills in Week 15 as long as he is healthy.

  Browns | Robert Griffin III to help ground game?    Fri Dec 9, 11:37 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III will 'add spice' to the running game, running backs coach Kirby Wilson said Friday, Dec. 9.

Footballguys view: A rushing quarterback can do that for a ground game. Defenders will no longer be able to chase down the line of scrimmage. Opposite play side, any edge defender will have to at least pause to see if the quarterback has the ball. That could be just enough to help spring a running back.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) was named the starter for Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: We're sort of fascinated by this. Prior to the season, we saw Griffin and Terrelle Pryor develop some nice chemistry and thought that Griffin could be a good fit in the offense. We never got a chance to see how that would work out until now. We wouldn't put Griffin as more than a middling QB2, but we are anxious to see what he can do even in the dumpster fire in Cleveland.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) likely will be the starting quarterback in Week 14 as long as he does not suffer a setback during practice this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Things have been trending this way for some time. The Browns practiced Cody Kessler, Josh McCown, Kevin Hogan and Griffin on Wednesday. Griffin's rushing ability makes him a better-than-some-would-think streaming option if he starts.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) is likely to get at least one more chance to prove he can be the team's quarterback of the future and 'all signs point' to it happening over the final month of the season, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon.

Footballguys view: Never say never, and Griffin looks to be on track to play again for the Browns. This could be a four-game audition for Griffin as the Browns are just looking to the future. If he impresses, there's a chance he could stick around in 2017. He has a cap hit of $9.25 million next year with only $1.75 million in dead money.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) will keep the starting job for the remainder of the season 'once he gets back in there,' according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Footballguys view: At one point it seemed like Griffin had played his final snap for the Browns. Then, rookie QB Cody Kessler was concussed and it opened the door for Griffin to return. He's a player who could have fantasy value due to the talent around him. Add Griffin to your roster if you can burn a spot on your bench with a 'lottery ticket' player.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) has been cleared for contact Tuesday, Nov. 29. He will practice during the bye week with QB Cody Kessler (concussion) and QB Josh McCown, and the team will decide on a starter.

Footballguys view: Griffin should be added off the waiver wire if you've got a spot on your bench. If he gets the starting nod, Griffin could post QB1 numbers due to his rushing ability and the talent around him with pass-catchers like Terrelle Pryor and Corey Coleman.
