Tuesday February 23rd, 2016

Redskins president Bruce Allen was a guest on a San Diego sports talk show Tuesday and gave quarterback Robert Griffin III a farewell of sorts.

When asked if he saw Griffin as a part of the Redskins’ 2016 plans, Allen said “no,” and later added that he thinks Griffin will have a few teams interested in him.

“I see Robert getting an opportunity with another team,” Allen told 1090 AM in San Diego. “I think we’ve heard from some teams that are interested, and I think he’s going to have a choice of a couple teams that will let him excel in the future.”

Griffin has a $16.15 million option next season that the Redskins are not expected to pick up. After beginning his career as the team’s starter, the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner has fallen out of favor in Washington, losing his job to both Colt McCoy and Kirk Cousins.
