Free agent Robert Griffin III will work out for the Chargers on Tuesday.
It will be RGIII's first known visit and workout since he was released by the Browns on March 10. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Griffin has been working out down in Florida with ex-Colts and Stanford OC Pep Hamilton, who also worked briefly with the Browns. The Bolts have Kellen Clemens currently as their backup. Jul 24 - 7:15 PM

Speaking in a Monday radio interview, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said free agent Robert Griffin III could be an option behind Russell Wilson.

Carroll said the same of Colin Kaepernick, which is what will get the headlines. Cut by the Browns on March 10, RGIII hasn't been heard from since. There hadn't been so much as a visit or a rumor until Carroll's interview. The odds don't seem particularly high he ends up in Seattle. Griffin turned 27 in February.

Connor Hughes of NJ Advanced Media reports free agent Robert Griffin III is "intrigued by the possibility" of signing with the Jets.

It's remains to be seen if the feeling is mutual. Griffin visited the Jets before signing with Cleveland last offseason, then proceeded to produce another year of injuries and bad tape. RG3 simply doesn't have much left. The Jets could employ a veteran as a short-term fix while grooming a franchise QB, but Jay Cutler and Colin Kaepernick would be more attractive options than Griffin.

Browns released QB Robert Griffin III.

The Browns are making the easy decision of declining RGIII's $750,000 roster bonus, and recouping $6.984 million in cap space. RGIII went full RGIII his first year in Cleveland, getting injured after throwing 26 passes in Week 1 and struggling mightily upon his return in December. Griffin is a formerly-electric talent who just doesn't have it anymore after multiple leg injuries and years of mind games. Sadly, he's running out of NFL options.
Mar 10 - 12:31 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns will release Robert Griffin III.

The Browns traded for Brock Osweiler on Thursday, but they aren't expected to keep him. Regardless, Cleveland is heading in a new direction at quarterback and it doesn't look like Griffin III is part of the plan. The Browns could broker a deal with New England for Jimmy Garoppolo or wait until the draft to address their need at quarterback. RG3 struggled through another injury-plagued year in 2016, throwing for just 886 yards and two touchdowns over five appearances. When RG3 resurfaces, it will be as a backup.
Mar 9 - 6:05 PM

The Browns haven't decided if Robert Griffin III will return in 2017.

"We haven't made a decision one way or the other whether he's going to be on our roster,'' EVP Sashi Brown said. Griffin has a $750K roster bonus due March 11, but Cleveland could pay that without committing to him for 2017. The Browns should move on from Griffin if they add a quarterback in the draft/free agency.
Mar 1 - 6:09 PM

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.

Jan 26 - 9:22 AM

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.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 07:44:00 PM

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.
Thu, Dec 29, 2016 01:08:00 PM

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.
Thu, Dec 29, 2016 08:45:00 AM

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.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 12:05:00 PM

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.
