Robert Griffin III Makes His Pitch To Washington Football Team To Resign Him To Play QB

Robert Griffin III wants another shot in Washington.

The free agent quarterback has stated numerous times that he is not retired from the NFL, despite transitioning to the media to talk sports.

Last Sunday, the Washington Football Team lost its starting quarterback when Ryan Fitzpatrick went down with a hip injury. The unfortunate injury led Robert Griffin III to see an opportunity to return to the place he once called home.

Griffin threw his name into the mix for Washington by posting an old highlight with the caption, “Make the call.”

Washington selected Robert Griffin III with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. In his first season, RGIII led Washington to a 10-6 record and an NFC East title berth. Unfortunately, Griffin tore his ACL in the team’s Wild Card game and has never been the same since.

Griffin was released from the team in 2015 and then spent one season with the Cleveland Browns. The last three seasons he was the backup to Lamar Jackson in Baltimore.
