Report: Robert Griffin III has surprise visit with QB-needy Browns
Are the Browns interested in RG3?
The free agency tour of Robert Griffin III took a surprise turn this weekend. According to Fox Sports, the former Redskins quarterback spent his Saturday in Cleveland, where he had a 'good' visit with the Browns.
It's not clear how interested the Browns are in adding RG3, but the team was interested enough to keep him in town for two days. According to NFL.com, Griffin flew in on Friday and flew out on Saturday. However, NFL.com did note that nothing is "imminent" between the two parties.
The bottom line here is that the Browns need a quarterback and it sounds like new coach Hue Jackson is doing his best to cover all of his bases. Besides RG3, the Browns have also been linked to Colin Kaepernick. The Browns are believed to have offered a third-round pick to the 49ers in exchange for Kaepernick.
Of course, if the Browns don't add a veteran starter, they'll be able to pick up a quarterback in the draft.
Jackson was in Berkeley, Calif., on Friday, where he spent a few hours watching Jared Goff perform at Cal's pro day. If the Browns don't add RG3 or Kaepernick, they'll almost certainly take Goff or North Dakota State's Carson Wentz with the second-overall pick in the NFL Draft.
Teams aren't exactly clamoring to sign RG3, but that could change once the QB dominoes start falling. If the Jets re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick and the 49ers decide to hold on to Kaepernick, that could open up the door for RG3 to sign with the Broncos or Rams, where he could compete for the starting job.
