Griffin, the Redskins' No. 2 overall pick in 2012, was not included in this group.
Griffin enjoyed phenomenal success as a rookie, throwing for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns and five touchdowns while running for 815 yards and seven touchdowns. Following an ACL tear during the 2012 postseason, Griffin hasn't been the same. After returning from a dislocated ankle this past season, Griffin was benched in favor of Colt McCoy.
Griffin played in nine games in 2014 and threw for 1,694 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.
