Why Robert Griffin III will be Cleveland’s comeback kid
BEREA, Ohio – The Brown’s flirting image of front office and
coaching staff surrounding Robert Griffin III hints at the league that the
quarterback might have found his new team. Having the Los Angeles Rams keep its
current roster, the former Redskins quarterback sensation takes his sights to
Getting attention from head coach Hue Jackson, front office, and vice
president of player personal Andrew Barry, Griffin III did everything he could possibly to ace
the interview on his meeting with the Browns on Saturday. From the looks of
mutual interests with Cleveland and the quarterback, the two should be a
Former 2012 NFL offensive rookie of the year, Griffin III hopes
to regain his dual threat status as a starting quarterback for 2016-2016
season. It has been over three years since the Robert Griffin’s dual threat abilities
took the NFL by storm, giving defensive coordinators headaches all around the
