Robert Griffin III had a second meeting with the Jets on Saturday after dining with team officials on Friday, NFL Network’s Albert Breer reports

The news comes alongside a USA Today report that the Rams and Browns are not interested in Ryan Fitzpatrick, meaning the free agent is losing leverage with the Jets.

Reports surfaced on Thursday that Griffin was interested in joining the Los Angeles Rams after he 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. 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.

In his career, Griffin has completed 64% of his passes with 40 touchdowns, 23 interceptions and a 90.6 passer rating.
