ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer does not believe Robert Griffin III or Johnny Manziel will join Dallas this offseason.
"Of the two, I think Robert Griffin III is more likely to be a Cowboy," Archer said, "but I don’t see that happening either." Manziel obviously intrigues Jerry Jones, but his off-field issues would likely be even more pronounced back home in Texas. Injuries have diminished Griffin, and he has yet to prove he can be an effective NFL quarterback without his scrambling ability. The Cowboys will add a quarterback this offseason, but Archer believes it will be through the draft. Jan 30 - 10:40 AM

Redskins GM Scot McCloughan said the team may not make the final decision on Robert Griffin III until March 9.

Washington can cut Griffin on the Monday after the Super Bowl. "The thing that’s good about where we are right now is, we have until March 9," McCloughan said. "That’s why I want to sit with the coaches ... and get a feel for it, because he's a good football player, he’s a really good person, and he’s under contract." Griffin's $16.155-million option becomes fully guaranteed on the first day of the new league year, which starts at 4 EST on March 9. The Redskins do not want Griffin to be their quarterback next season, but they are not going to let the only quarterback under contract walk before working out a deal with impending free agent Kirk Cousins.

Robert Griffin III left a message in his locker on Monday suggesting he's played his final game as a Redskin.

In true RGIII fashion, he left behind a passive aggressive quote on laminated paper with a Redskins logo as the backdrop. It can be viewed at the link below. RGIII's Redskins career spiraled out of control due in part to things beyond his control, but he's never seemed to exactly make things easy on his coaches. He's bound to have a fascinating market. Wherever he ends up, it's unlikely to be as a guaranteed starter.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Redskins will release Robert Griffin III this offseason.

This is not exactly breaking news. Washington was never going to pay Griffin's $16.155 million, fifth-year option, and Griffin was not going to restructure his deal just to spend another season sitting behind Kirk Cousins. It is just a matter of time. The interesting part of the report is Rapoport's assertion that owner Daniel Snyder forced GM Scot McCloughan and coach Jay Gruden to keep Griffin on the roster all season. Even with a great personnel man and a good coach, Snyder cannot stop meddling. Griffin should reemerge in a quarterback battle or as a high-profile backup next season.

Sources tell Yahoo's Charles Robinson that Robert Griffin III would "love" to end up with the Cowboys.

It's not exactly a surprise. Griffin is a Texas native, and rather comically, his uncle was spotted on the Dallas sideline Sunday wearing a custom "RGIII" Cowboys jersey. The Redskins hold a $16.2 million team option on Griffin that will either be declined or traded once the new league year begins. RGIII will almost certainly end up a free agent. The Cowboys, who badly need a competent backup for Tony Romo and have an owner obsessed with big names, make a lot of sense.
Jan 5 - 2:50 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles, Cowboys and Texans would be interested in Robert Griffin III if he became available.

Griffin has been available via trade all season, so these are presumably teams who would be interested if (when) he is released this offseason. In reality, that list should contain nearly every team. Rapoport also said Saints coach Sean Payton would be interested in Griffin, but his future in New Orleans is up in the air as well.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Redskins have received no trade inquiries for Robert Griffin III to this point.

Nor will they. Griffin is owed a fifth-year option of $16.155 million next season which is guaranteed for injury only. Washington has been avoiding that guarantee by keeping Griffin safely on the sidelines, but any team which traded for Griffin would likely do so with the intent to play him, thus opening themselves up to the potential of paying an injured and at this point not very good quarterback over $16 million next season. Griffin should be available for free this offseason.

Redskins declared QB Robert Griffin III, WR Rashad Ross, LB Jackson Jeffcoat, OG Spencer Long, OT Tom Compton, TE Anthony McCoy and OT Arie Kouandjio inactive for Week 1 against the Dolphins.

The Redskins reportedly had RGIII running with the scout team as a safety this week. The organization needs to stop embarrassing itself and its former first-round pick by granting him his release.

The Redskins will keep Robert Griffin III as their No. 3 quarterback.

Griffin III finally received clearance from doctors this week after missing time with a concussion. He's been demoted to No. 3 on the depth chart behind starter Kirk Cousins and backup Colt McCoy. Expect the former Heisman Trophy winner to do a lot of clipboard-holding this year.

Redskins VP Bruce Allen said Friday that Robert Griffin III (concussion) has been medically cleared.

This gives Washington the green light to waive Griffin if they so choose, though for now they are tentatively expected to keep RG3 on the 53-man roster. He'll open the season as the Redskins' No. 3 quarterback behind Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy. We wouldn't bet on Griffin making any starts anytime soon.

Robert Griffin III (concussion) still hasn't been cleared to play.

It's been three weeks since Griffin suffered a concussion in Washington's preseason game against Detroit. Since then Griffin has gone from being the Redskins' starter to a distant backup behind Kirk Cousins. It's anyone's guess when he'll be cleared to play again. His fantasy value is zilch.
Thu, Sep 10, 2015 01:59:00 PM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said the team kept Robert Griffin III (concussion) "because we thought he was one of our top 53 guys."

"We don't feel like he's a distraction at all," Gruden insisted. "You can never have too many quarterbacks in your building." You can if none of the quarterbacks are particularly good. Griffin will visit an independent neurologist Tuesday. If he is cleared, the Redskins will have to decide where he fits on the Week 1 depth chart. We suspect he'll be Washington's No. 3.

Robert Griffin III is scheduled to visit an independent neurologist next week.

Coach Jay Gruden is optimistic RG3 will be cleared early this week. Gruden hasn't announced whether Griffin will serve as Kirk Cousins' backup or if he'll be the No. 3 behind Colt McCoy. It appears Griffin will be stranded in Washington for at least another year after surviving the team's final cuts on Saturday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the decision to keep Robert Griffin III on the active roster was not unanimous.

"Not everyone in their building is happy about it," Schefter wrote. The Redskins are pushing the organizational harmony narrative hard, but no one is buying it. Griffin will be a constant shadow hanging over whoever is starting games this season, and if he ends up suffering a serious injury, Washington will be on the hook for his $16.155 million fifth-year option. Keeping him on the roster was not the right decision.

The NFL Network's Jeff Darlington reported the Redskins plan to keep Robert Griffin III (concussion) on their 53-man roster.

The Washington Post also expects Griffin to stick on the team. The Redskins are taking a financial risk by retaining Griffin. His $16.155 million fifth-year option is guaranteed for injury only, meaning he has to be able to pass a physical when the Redskins decide to release him next offseason. Griffin was examined by an independent neurologist late this week, but neither he nor the team has been given the results of that exam.
