Robert Griffin: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Griffin is a candidate to win the Browns' starting quarterback position, but head coach Hue Jackson says "it's too soon" to name the team's starter at this point, Cleveland.com reports.

Griffin's new team waited until late in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft to select a quarterback, going with USC product Cody Kessler at No. 93 overall, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After Griffin signed a two-year, $15 million contract in late March, it was widely reported that his addition wouldn't necessarily preclude the Browns from taking a quarterback early in the draft. Instead, the team traded down in the first round multiple times, eventually selecting Baylor WR Corey Coleman at No. 15 overall. A Baylor product himself, Griffin is likely thrilled about how the draft turned out, with Cleveland further bolstering its receiving corps by selecting WR Ricardo Louis (fourth round), TE Seth Devalve (fourth), WR Jordan Payton (fifth), and WR Rashard Higgins (fifth) in the middle rounds. Though he'll presumably have to compete for the job, Griffin is the favorite to start in Week 1 for a rebuilding Browns team, as he offers greater long-term potential than either Kessler or 36-year-old Josh McCown.

Griffin agreed to a two-year, $15 million contract with the Browns on Thursday, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

$6.75 million of the contract is guaranteed and another $7 million is available through incentives. The significant commitment should ensure that Griffin gets to compete for the starting job, even if his new team ends up selecting a quarterback in the first round of the NFL Draft. Although the Browns now seem far less likely to do so, various reports have suggested that it's still on the table. The 26-year-old Griffin still has first-rate physical tools, but he hasn't played well since his rookie season and didn't take a single snap in 2015.
Griffin is expected to reach an agreement with the Browns on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Griffin visited the Jets and Browns last week, with rumors suggesting that he was far more likely to join the latter team. Assuming a deal is worked out, Griffin will join Josh McCown and Austin Davis on the Cleveland depth chart, though it's entirely possible the team could still add a rookie. This will take Cleveland out of the mix for Colin Kaepernick, and it doesn't bode well for Jared Goff or Carson Wentz's chances of coming off the board within the first three picks of the NFL Draft. Griffin, meanwhile, should have the opportunity to compete for the starting job on a talent-deficient Cleveland squad.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

For the second consecutive year, Griffin's season was ruined by injury, and questions abound about his future in Washington and whether he'll ever realize the promise of his rookie season. Griffin dislocated his left ankle Week 2, which kept him out six weeks. He returned for three lackluster games before a 106-yard effort Week 12 sent him to the bench. He only started the season's final two games because Colt McCoy suffered a season-ending injury. For all of his mechanical flaws, Griffin stills throws a great deep ball — he had eight completions of 40-plus yards in nine games — but he also took 33 sacks (12th-most), often because he held the ball too long or tried to make something out of nothing with his legs when he should have just thrown it away. Though Griffin entered training camp as the franchise's starter at QB, by the end of August, he was supplanted by Kirk Cousins and thus relegated to backup duty.

2014

It might take a leap of faith to rank Griffin so highly after he followed up his late-season 2012 ACL tear with a disappointing and drama-filled 2013 season, but there are at least a few reasons to expect him to enjoy a breakout season in 2014. The most obvious is that his health should be improved now that he's had an entire season for his knee to recover, and his rhythm ought to be sharper as a result. The second is that the Redskins greatly improved their offense in the offseason, adding receivers DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts. Griffin has one of the best deep balls in the league, so the addition of Jackson, potentially the league's best deep threat, could pay major dividends. They even added a potential upgrade at right tackle in third-round pick Morgan Moses. The third reason is that Mike Shanahan's replacement, Jay Gruden, oversaw an aggressive passing game in Cincinnati, turning the generally unimpressive Andy Dalton into a 33-touchdown player in 2013. With his rare rushing skills, Griffin won't need 33 passing touchdowns to be a smashing fantasy hit in 2014. A healthy Griffin throwing to Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jordan Reed in a pass-happy offense has the look of a profitable fantasy situation.

2013

There's probably no quarterback more difficult to project than Griffin. We know players have recently been able to return from torn knees at a faster rate than ever before, but we've never seen it with a quarterback who relies so much on his legs. While Griffin is certainly a remarkable passer, a huge portion of his yards came off of play-action, read-option looks, and those were set up by his prowess as a runner. Actually, he turned in the highest passer rating off of play-action looks in the history of the NFL. If defenses don't fear his legs, though, they won't respect him as a runner, and that could drastically change the nature of the Redskins' offense. As it stands right now, it's a safe bet Griffin won't match his 2012 rushing numbers. The Redskins coaches will hold him back, at least early in the season, so the quarterback's versatility won't be such a major factor in his success. If Griffin is going to remain among fantasy football's elite, he'll need to beat defenses through the air. He did it last year to the tune of a 65.6 percent completion rate and 8.1 YPA, but again, we'll need to see how the nature of Washington’s offense might shift.

2012

Even if Griffin struggles in real football terms as a rookie, his likely high pass-attempt volume in Washington should result in big aggregate numbers. Despite enduring the clownish play of Rex Grossman and John Beck, the Redskins voluntarily subjected themselves to 591 pass attempts in 2011, which ranked as the fifth-highest total in the league. Given the team’s additions of free-agent wide receivers Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan and the late-season 2011 emergence of running backs Roy Helu and Evan Royster, Griffin will also have better weapons with which to work. With a deep ball that should be among the league’s best from Day 1 and 4.41 speed, Griffin should make good use of those weapons, especially down field. Moreover, a significant number of those pass attempts will be converted to scramble runs by Griffin, which figures to be a huge aid to his fantasy value given that he ran for 2,254 yards and 33 touchdowns in 41 games at Baylor – and that’s with the NCAA subtracting yardage for sacks.
