The Dallas Cowboys are in quite the predicament when it comes to the quarterback position. With that said, 2021 has been a very tumultuous teams for many teams in the QB role. With Dak Prescott being sidelined last year to to a season ending injury, many question who will be his backup will be once he returns? What free agent would be the best option?
Robert Griffin III has not had the career that most envisioned for him when he finally joined the NFL. After being drafted by the Washington Football Team as the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the WFT mortgaged their future in him. His first year was great as he won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year and even made it to the Pro Bowl.
But after that, things fell apart due to a knee injury he sustained and he never came back the same. Eventually, the WFT releases Griffin and he then became a journeyman. RG3 has since played for the Cleveland Browns and the Baltimore Ravens.
After serving three years as the back up in Baltimore, Griffin is currently a free agent.
Football Analyst Mike Fisher seems to think that RG3 would make for a great fit as Dak Prescott’s backup. As the herd is thinning considerably to find Dam a qualified backup, RG3 could be the best potential option available. Unfortunately, Dak Prescott’s brother Tad seems to think otherwise. Check out the tweet below on Tad’s feelings about RG3.
