Former First Round Pick Wants To Be The Browns QB

Written by Tony Ghaul

Former first round pick and ESPN analyst Robert Griffin III says the Cleveland Browns should sign him and make him the starting QB following Deshaun Watson’s season-ending injury, as per Dov Kleiman.

Griffin was the No. 2 overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins. He had a stellar rookie season, and then Griffin underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL and LCL during the offseason following his first year.

Griffin III was never able to recapture the success that he had in his first season. Griffin remained in the NFL up until 2020 as a backup QB. His final seasons were spent with the Baltimore Ravens.

On a recent episode of his podcast, The Ones. During the episode, Griffin offered to the Browns starting QB.

“I still run a 4.3 40 time.”

Griffin signed a broadcasting agreement with ESPN in 2021, but there is an out in his contract if the opportunity to return to the NFL comes up, as per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The Browns have named rookie fifth round draft pick Dorian Thompson-Robinson as their starting QB for this Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It will be his second start of the season.
