Draft Scout News
08/19/16 - QB Robert Griffin III completed six of eight passes for 96 yards and two touchdown passes against Atlanta. He did not throw an interception and had a passer rating of 154.2.
08/08/16 - QB Robert Griffin III will be the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, coach Hue Jackson said Monday.
Jackson said at the outset of training camp that he would name a starter before the first preseason game Friday, but the first-year coach of the Browns made his decision well before that deadline.
"It's time. Robert has earned the right to be named the starting quarterback of the Cleveland Browns," Jackson said. "Since he was signed back in March, Robert has made it clear through his actions that he is willing to do everything that has been asked of him to earn this role. Throughout this process he has gained the respect from his teammates, the coaching staff and the entire organization that is necessary for him to lead our offense and really the entire team. Pep (Hamilton) has done an outstanding job with that room to get us to this point so we can make this decision at what I feel is the optimal time which enables us to best prepare for the regular season."
08/02/16 - QB Robert Griffin III continues to take most of the snaps with the first offense, but Jackson still is not ready to name his starter.
05/18/16 - QB Robert Griffin III is getting caught up in the excitement surrounding the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs have a 1-0 lead on the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Eastern Conference finals.
"We understand how long it's been since this city has experienced dramatic success," Griffin said. "It would be big for the Cavs to win it this year so we are rooting them on, but we also know we have business to take care of."
Cleveland hasn't won a team championship in a major sport since the Browns won the NFL championship in 1964.
03/27/16 - QB Robert Griffin III wants to get his mechanics back on track.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Griffin will work in Los Angeles with quarterback expert Tom House. RG3 then will head to Cleveland for the launch of the offseason training program on April 4.
House worked with Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton when Browns head coach Hue Jackson was offensive coordinator of the Bengals.
The 26-year-old Griffin, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins, was released before his fifth-year option hit the books at more than $15 million. Griffin was replaced as the starting quarterback in Washington before the 2015 season began by Kirk Cousins, who was retained in March with the Redskins' franchise tag.
House, a former Major League Baseball pitcher with a Ph.D. in sports/performance psychology, also has worked with Tom Brady of the New England Patriots and Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints.
After leading the Redskins to the playoffs in his rookie season of 2012, Griffin struggled because of injuries and poor play. He has career totals of 8,097 yards, 40 touchdowns and 23 interceptions.
