RGIII Gets Another Chance At Success With Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns signed the former Redskins quarterback for $15 million. Griffin will have another chance at success after not playing in 2015.

By Christian Bryant | March 24, 2016

The Cleveland Browns signed former Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III on Thursday to a two-year deal, ending the Browns' off-season QB hunt and RGIII's search for a new home.

Griffin tweeted Thursday he was "Excited to Join the #DAWGPOUND," which is a much different expression than when we saw him leaving the Redskins like an apathetic office employee.

Griffin's struggles since his breakout rookie season have been well-documented and almost punctuated by a torn ACL, a dislocated ankle and drop in the Redskins' depth chart.

Griffin didn't play in the 2015 season, but he and head coach Hue Jackson seem to think the former Heisman winner's move to Cleveland is good for everyone involved.

One thing Griffin will have to do once he suits up for Cleveland is compete. The Browns will have the No. 2 pick, and Jackson has said he'd draft a quarterback if it's a good fit for the team.
