Robert Griffin III is due a $750,000 roster bonus on March 11.
While not an exorbitant sum, it does provide a point in time for the Browns to make a decision on RG3 -- release him before March 11 or pay him the $750K bonus. The Akron Beacon Journal confirms "it would be more surprising if Griffin were retained than if he were cut." Griffin likely isn't long for the roster. Feb 20 - 4:45 PM

Browns coach Hue Jackson said he has not "come to any conclusions" about Robert Griffin III's future in Cleveland

"Everybody else can jump to those conclusions," Jackson continued, "but we're going to keep looking at this thing." The Browns have been open about their need to find a quarterback this offseason, which is as definite a conclusion as you can make about Griffin. Owed a $1.5 million roster bonus in March, it would be very surprising if RG3 is back in Cleveland.

Robert Griffin III completed 29-of-40 passes for 232 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Browns' Week 17 loss to the Steelers.

The touchdown passes were Griffin's first two of the season and ends a personal touchdown drought that dated back to 2014. RGIII made five starts for the Browns this season, opening the year as the starter before injuring his non-throwing shoulder Week 1 against the Eagles and missing the next three months on I.R. RGIII finishes the year completing 87-of-147 passes (59.2 percent) for 886 yards (6.0 YPA) and 2:3 TD:INT. He rushed for 190 yards and two touchdowns. RGIII signed a two-year deal last offseason but comes with a $9.25 million cap hit in 2017. The Browns can save $7.5 million by releasing RGIII. Cleveland figures to aggressively address the quarterback spot.
Jan 1 - 6:18 PM

ESPN Cleveland gives Robert Griffin III a 50 percent chance to return as the 2017 starter.

Griffin has put few positives on tape in four starts this year, but the Browns don’t have anyone better. It’s possible he’ll be back if Cleveland fails to upgrade this offseason. The Browns have been linked to Jimmy Garoppolo trade rumors and are locked into a top-2 pick. Releasing Griffin would clear $6 million in cap space.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said Robert Griffin III will start Week 17 against the Steelers barring any setbacks.

Griffin cleared the concussion protocol and returned to practice on Thursday. The quarterback is coming off his best game of the season, but it is still possible he is benched for Cody Kessler during the game. Neither is a fantasy option.

Robert Griffin III has cleared the concussion protocol and will return to practice Thursday.

This puts him on track to start the season finale against the Steelers. Griffin is coming off his best game of the season, but it would still make some sense for the Browns to get Cody Kessler some reps with Griffin highly unlikely to be back with the team next season. Neither is a recommended fantasy play.

Robert Griffin III (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

If RGIII can't get cleared, Cody Kessler will get the start against the Steelers.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 11:57:00 AM

Browns coach Hue Jackson confirmed Robert Griffin III is in the concussion protocol.

Jackson left open the possibility RG3 will get cleared in time to play in the season finale, but that seems very unlikely. Cody Kessler will get the start if Griffin is not able to play.

Robert Griffin III (concussion) is expected to miss next week's regular season finale against the Steelers.

Griffin III exited Saturday's game with a concussion but not before playing his best game of the season. That only amounted to 164 yards on 17-of-25 passing, but it was still a vast improvement from his previous outings. Saturday was a resounding success for the Browns, who were able to avoid the embarrassment of a winless season while still holding onto the No. 1 pick. With RG3 in the concussion protocol, Cody Kessler will likely get the nod next week at Pittsburgh. Griffin still has a year left on his contract but it's unclear if the Browns plan on bringing him back.

Robert Griffin III exited Sunday's Week 16 game against the Chargers with a concussion.

Cody Kessler came in. Griffin's brain injury occurred on his seventh sack taken. The Browns moved the ball surprisingly well in the first half, before stumbling in the final two frames. Griffin has suffered several concussions previously and may be done for the season.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 03:49:00 PM

Browns coach Hue Jackson said Monday Robert Griffin III will start in Week 16 against the Chargers.

Griffin has failed to hit 200 passing yards in each of his three starts, but Jackson believed RG3 "improved" from Week 14 to Week 15 and is optimistic "there can be a big jump" in Griffin's fourth start and third in a row. Jackson did leave open the possibility Griffin will be on a short leash, saying he "won't be hesitant" to turn back to Cody Kessler because he "wants to see Cody again."

Browns coach Hue Jackson said the team is "not where they need to be" at the quarterback position.

It is doubtful anyone would disagree with his assessment, but it does suggest the coach is at least mulling another quarterback change after two dreadful outings by Robert Griffin III, who is likely entering his final two weeks with the organization. "Everything's going to be on the table," Jackson said. "I owe these guys the best opportunity to win in the locker room." Jackson will do everything he can to avoid a winless season, but the Browns are staring 0-16 square in the eyes.

Robert Griffin III completed 17-of-28 passes for 196 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Browns' 33-13, Week 15 loss to the Bills, adding eight carries for 48 yards and a touchdown.

RGIII cleared the extremely low bar of last week's disaster, but still couldn't keep his team competitive. Griffin's touchdown was an impressive 18-yarder where he took a big shot at the end. Coach Hue Jackson will deem today progress, but RGIII still has miles to go. He won't be on the streaming radar against the Chargers on Christmas Eve.

Browns coach Hue Jackson wants to see a "jump in performance" from Robert Griffin III this week.

Griffin was dreadful against the Bengals, completing just 12-of-28 passes for 104 yards with one interception. "I can understand last week, but I do not want to see it happen again this week," Jackson said. "You have a game under your belt. You have practices under your belt. Now, you need to go play well. I expect that everything will be better from that standpoint." After what Griffin showed last week, Jackson is likely more hoping for a better performance than expecting one. Griffin is not an option in any league.

Robert Griffin III completed 12-of-28 passes for 104 yards with one interception and rushed seven times for 31 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Browns' Week 14 loss to the Bengals.

What a disaster. Griffin III couldn’t have played much worse in his return from a three-month shoulder injury. He completed just two-of-10 passes for 20 yards in the first half and was only marginally better after halftime. His QB rating at the half was an unheard of 0.0. Many of his decisions were laughably misguided including an interception off a flea-flicker he threw into triple coverage. Griffin III fell in love with the deep ball, repeatedly targeting Corey Coleman downfield with very little success. On one of his more inexplicable plays, Griffin III pegged a wide-open Gary Barnidge right in the shoulder. Griffin III looked like a player who hadn't touched a football in three months. He can still extend plays with his feet, but that skill doesn’t amount to much when you can’t throw. RG3 and the Browns will continue their march to rock bottom next week at Buffalo.
