After sitting out the 2021 season, Robert Griffin III may be eyeing an NFL return. He also has some potential teams in mind.
Speaking on The Rich Eisen Show on Tuesday, Griffin said that, after running a 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds, he has had a “plethora of teams” reach out to him. He noted just three that he had in mind to join.
“Going back home to Texas with the Dallas Cowboys. I know a lot of Washington fans don’t want to hear that but that would be a great situation for me. The Atlanta Falcons, being there with Mariota and Ridder would be a great situation for me. And going to Chicago with Justin Fields to try to help as much as I possibly can in that quarterback room would also be a great situation.”
The Bears just released Nick Foles since he was the third-string quarterback on the roster behind Fields and Trevor Siemian. He could certainly be an option on the team.
Griffin III spent his first three NFL seasons with the Washington Commanders before injuries caught derailed his career. He then started five games with the Cleveland Browns in 2016 before playing with the Ravens from 2018-20.
Griffin could be a much better option as a backup QB in Dallas behind Dak Prescott.
The 32-year-old clearly has more football left in him. He currently works for ESPN as an NFL and college football analyst
