Robert Griffin the 3rd apparently met with the Cleveland Browns organization and seem to be impressed with the quarterbacks state of mind at this point in time. Browns new head coach Hue Jackson stated that Griffin owned up for his shortcomings in Washington and really had a great interview with the team. The positive feedback could be a sign of Griffin’s maturity and a step in the right direction for the 4th year quarterback. After fizzling out in Washington and eventually losing his job to Kirk Cousins, Griffin remained optimistic about his future and that could be a huge factor in him landing his next gig. That opportunity looks like it very well might be with the Cleveland Browns and Hue Jackson is an outstanding offensive play caller who could certaintly help Griffin get his career back on track. In fact even though Griffin lost his job, he still has managed to throw for 40 touchdowns and 23 touchdowns over those 3 seasons that he has played. Showing that in the right circumstances he could certainly become an effective football player again. The key for Griffin will be working on his foot work, making sure he sticks to his footwork when the pressure is in his face, and taking the next step when it comes to reading the defense. In the NFL playing quarterback is as much as a mental battle as it is a physical battle. If Robert Griffin can understand the responsibility that comes with being a quarterback mentally he could easily improve his situation. While the Browns are the laughing stock of the league, they are trending in the right direction under Jackson and maybe Griffin can help turn around that team. It won’t be easy by any means but that isn’t to say it can’t happen. It will be interesting to see if the Browns do indeed sign Griffin and if they do, whether or not the draft a quarterback in the draft next month? If they do than that says Griffin is an insurance policy to either Wentz or Goff. If they don’t then maybe Jackson believes Griffin can lead his football team moving forward.
