Report: Robert Griffin III wants to sign with Cowboys if cut by Redskins
Wednesday January 6th, 2016

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is interested in signing with the Dallas Cowboys if he is cut by the Redskins this off-season, reports Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports.

Following nearly three seasons as the Redskins starting quarterback, Griffin did not appear in a game for Washington this year after he was replaced as the starter by Kirk Cousins during the preseason. 

Robinson’s sources have said Griffin has Dallas “atop [his] preferred destinations,” and that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would be interested in signing the 25-year-old quarterback. In 2014, Jones told the NFL Network he was “a fan of RG3.”

In three NFL seasons, Griffin has started 35 games and completed 63.9% of his passes for 8,097 yards.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel also reportedly would like to sign with the Cowboys, and is considered likely to depart from Cleveland this off-season.
