|Browns sign Robert Griffin, two-year deal -- Thu Mar 24 12:45 pm --|
Browns could still draft QB with No.2 pick
|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.
Griffin, a free agent, made it official Thursday when he signed with the Browns. “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."
FF Today's Take: ESPN is reporting this is a two-year deal. There's still a strong possibility the Browns take a quarterback with the No.2 pick. It's likely RGIII could start Week 1 even with a rookie QB in the mix but his fantasy value on a team lacking playmakers will be in the tank. He's nothing more than a QB2 for now.

Former Redskins QB visits Browns Friday and Saturday
|The Browns remain interested in quarterback Robert Griffin III after meeting with him Friday and Saturday, a source told cleveland.com. "We are going through our process,'' Jackson said. "We're going to be very diligent in what we are doing -- trying to make sure that we put the right quarterbacks on our football team and in that quarterback room. And that's one of my biggest responsibilities and also one of our organization's biggest responsibilities." (Cleveland Plain Dealer)|
FF Today's Take: The Browns have lost key players this off-season and are shaping up to be the worst team in the league in 2016. Trading for Colin Kaepernick appears to be a secondary option at this point as its rumored the 49ers want a 2nd round pick in return. The Browns desperately need a quarterback upgrade over Josh McCown and Austin Davis.
|Broncos acquire QB Mark Sanchez from Eagles -- Fri Mar 11 2:25 pm --|
7th-round pick in 2016
|The Denver Broncos have acquired quarterback Mark Sanchez from the Philadelphia Eagles for a conditional draft pick, the teams announced. The draft pick headed to Philadelphia is a seventh-round pick, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter and multiple reports.
FF Today's Take: After losing Peyton Manning to retirement and Brock Osweiler to the Texans, the Broncos are in scramble mode at the quarterback position. Expect Sanchez to compete for the starting job with another acquisition. Ryan Fitzpatrick, Robert Griffin III and Colin Kaepernick are likely candidates.
|Redskins release Robert Griffin III -- Mon Mar 7 11:30 am --|
Active for one game in 2015
|The Washington Redskins have released Robert Griffin III, the 2012 NFL offensive rookie of the year and one-time face of the franchise, the quarterback confirmed via an Instagram post. Griffin had lost the starting job in August and served as Washington's No. 3 quarterback all season. He was active for one game. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: The Redskins were hoping they could find a trade partner for RGIII but with no one calling, the release was inevitable. They traded up in the 2012 draft to get Griffin and have now released him 4 years later. He should have plenty of interest in league scrambling for quarterbacks and despite his uneven play past his rookie season, his upside is still attractive to many personnel types across the league.
