Cleveland Browns Sign Robert Griffin III To 2-Year Deal Rocko Rathon March 24, 2016 Source Sports | Sports News The Cleveland Browns seemingly have found their guy in Robert Griffin III after rumors were swirling for the past few days that the ex-Redskin would be headed to the franchise. The team agreed to a 2-year deal with the young quarterback after he met with Hue Jackson and associate head coach Pep Hamilton. RGIII didn’t play a single down during the 2015 NFL season with the Washington Redskins, being benched in place of Kirk Cousins. The former second overall pick hopes to regain the magic he captured in his rookie season in 2012. Griffin is excited for his new opportunity. I’m excited about the opportunity to join the Dawg Pound and help build something here in Cleveland. 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. It might not be smooth sailing for Griffin though as reports have begun to surface saying that the Browns might take a quarterback with their number 2 overall pick in the upcoming draft.
