Former Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is reportedly interested in joining the Rams.
Former Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is interested in joining the Los Angeles Rams, reports Vincent Bonsignore of the Los Angeles Daily News.
Griffin was released by the Redskins on Monday. The former No. 2 overall pick did not play last season, backing up Kirk Cousins for all 16 games.
The Rams held the No. 2 pick the year Griffin was drafted, but traded the selection to Washington for three first-round picks and a second-round pick. Griffin led the Redskins to a 10–6 record in his rookie season, throwing for 20 touchdowns, posting a 102.4 passer rating and running for seven more scores.
Griffin played only 22 games combined the next two seasons, hampered by knee and ankle injuries. He was benched for Cousins during the preseason last year, as coach Jay Gruden seemed determined to move in another direction.
In his career, Griffin has completed 64% of his passes with 40 touchdowns, 23 interceptions and a 90.6 passer rating.
