IFWT_RG3 Browns

Robert Griffin III has a new home with the Cleveland Browns.  The team announced they signed him to a two-year, $15 million deal with a $3.5 million signing bonus and $3.25 million guaranteed in 2016 and can make another $750,000 in per-game active bonuses.

Robert Griffin III was sold on Cleveland as soon as his meeting with Browns head coach Hue Jackson and associate head coach Pep Hamilton was complete.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to join the Dawg Pound and help build something here in Cleveland,” Griffin said. “Coach Hue and Pep, I had a great meeting with them. I really believe in what they preach and how they can help not only me as a player but this team win games and that’s what we’re all about.

“I’m just excited to come in and compete. Nothing’s ever been given to me in my life, so I just want to go out and compete with the guys and grow with this team. I feel like that’s all I’m really focused on.”

The Browns have the No. 2 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and many speculate that they will still use it draft a quarterback.  Jeff Darlington of NFL Network says he is sure that regardless of who they draft, RG3 will be the starting quarterback week 1.

Griffin has appeared in 37 games with 35 starts. He has completed 679 of 1,063 passes (63.9 percent) for 8,097 yards with 40 touchdowns, 23 interceptions and a 90.6 rating. He has added 1,480 career rushing yards with eight scores.

He ended on a bad note with the Washington Redskins and many were looking for him to redeem himself with the next team.  The Browns are notorious for being a sh-t show, but maybe with the low expectations, RG3 will thrive.
