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 | Robert Griffin III working on mechanics (Sat Jun 25, 11:12 PM) - Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III is working on planting his back foot before throwing passes, and head coach Hue Jackson said Griffin is doing a good job of checking the ball down.

Our View: Griffin hasn't stood out in practices so far, so camp and the preseason will be important for him. The Browns paid him like they expect him to win the starting job, but Josh McCown was playing well last year and they would be best served going with him unless Griffin truly wins the job.
