RGIII Odds: Where Will he Be Next Year?

Washington Redskins Robert Griffin III

Three years ago, Robert Griffin III was a standout rookie quarterback who appeared to have an extremely bright future in the NFL as the face of the Washington Redskins. These days he gets more airtime in Subway commercials than he does on the football field. Washington’s loss to the Green Bay Packers in the Wild Card Round officially signalled the end of Griffin’s tumultuous tenure in D.C., which leaves the Baylor product looking for a new home.

That’s where it gets interesting. Online sportsbook Bovada has opened a prop special on where the polarizing 25-year-old will land, with the Houston Texans at the top of the list at +300. The Dallas Cowboys (+550) and St. Louis *cough* Los Angeles Rams (+650) are the other two likeliest destinations for Griffin.

If you watched Houston’s 30-0 beat down at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs last weekend, you know just how badly the team needs help under center. Unsurprisingly, Brian Hoyer looked like Brian Hoyer again and laid a giant egg, which could easily leave the door wide open for the team to buy low on Griffin.

Griffin - along with the NFL’s bad boy Johnny Manziel - have each expressed their desire to play for the Cowboys, but you’d have to think the former has the best shot of landing the backup gig behind aging star Tony Romo. Sure, Griffin didn’t play a single down in 2015, but his raw talent is still there. Manziel’s wild off-field behavior could and should rightfully scare away any team willing to take a flier on him. People can’t change overnight, after all.

Can Griffin finally emerge as a bona fide NFL QB given the right situation? It’s entirely plausible, and there’s no doubt he’ll have a massive chip on his shoulder after the ugly way his time in Washington ended. But one thing is certain: if Griffin can’t piece it together in a new environment, he may find himself without any suitors sooner rather than later.
