Bovada: Texans, Cowboys favored to land Robert Griffin III in free agency
The online gambling company Bovada set odds for Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III’s impending free agency on Wednesday, picking the Houston Texans as the most likely destination for the former No. 2 pick.
The Redskins are expected to decline to pick up the option for a final year on the contract for Griffin, who fell to third on the team’s depth chart this season. Once he hits the free agent market, the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner is expected to receive plenty of interest.
Bovada put 3–1 odds on Griffin ending up with the Texans. Griffin, 25, spent much of his youth in Copperas Cove, Texas, about 200 miles from Houston.
Griffin soared in his first season in the NFL, leading the Redskins to an NFC East title and winning offensive rookie of the year after passing for 3,200 yards and 20 touchdowns with just five interceptions. But over three subsequent seasons, Griffin fell out of favor in Washington, and he was ultimately replaced by Kirk Cousins as Washington's full–time starter.
Griffin did not see any game time in 2015.
