Summary

Griffin took the league by storm in his 2012 rookie season but had his career derailed by injuries and a coaching change in Washington. He didn't play at all last season because coach Jay Gruden preferred Kirk Cousins to run his offense. When considering Griffin's injury history, it's quite difficult to predict how he'll play this season. Further muddying the waters is a change of team, a weak receiving corps, and a new head coach in place. On the positive side, the new coach is Hue Jackson, who has shown a knack for designing his offenses to cater to the strengths of his players. Griffin will need to hold off veteran Josh McCown for the starting job. But the comparison of Griffin's ceiling to McCown being a known commodity should provide Griffin with every opportunity to be the Week 1 starter. (May 17)

Browns | Hue Jackson not rushing QB decision (Sun May 15, 08:58 PM) - Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III or any other player won't be named the starting quarterback until they earn it, according to head coach Hue Jackson, but Jackson said that he expects to name the Week 1 start well before the season opener.

Our View: We're expecting Griffin to be the team's starter. Rookie Cody Kessler is making a strong impression in Browns camp, but training camp and the preseason will be able to separate the two.
