Robert Griffin III would highly consider playing for the NFL franchise in Los Angeles and sign with the Rams this offseason in the latest NFL rumors in free agency. Griffin, also known as RG3, was a promising quarterback in the league but was waived by the Washington Redskins earlier this year.
Vincent Bonsignore of the Los Angeles Daily News posted on Twitter about the possibility of Griffin signing with the Rams.
It was the Rams franchise, previously based in St. Louis, that traded Griffin to Washington on a draft day deal in 2012.
“Robert Griffin III “very much” wants to play for the Rams in Los Angeles, a source close to the situation indicated Thursday,” Bonsignore wrote in his article about NFL rumors involving Griffin’s status this offseason.
“The fit seems natural, although it comes with risk after RG3 lost his starting job with the Washington Redskins and was ultimately released last week after four seasons in D.C.”
According to the same article, the Rams have the ability to surround Griffin with a “strong supporting cast” feature the likes of running back Todd Gurley and Tavon Austin, among others.
RG3 had a disappointing time in Washington, who traded multiple first round picks just to get Griffin in the 2012 draft.
After good first two years in the league, Griffin threw for just 1,694 passing yards on 147 of 214 completions with 4 touchdowns and 6 interceptions in the 2015 season. He played in just nine games and lost the starting QB spot for the Redskins.
Griffin going to the Los Angeles Rams is just one of the NFL rumors at this point of the free agency with other teams reportedly interested in the quarterback.
