According to Garafolo, the Browns don’t view RGIII as just a one-year option at quarterback and it’s possible they could give him another opportunity next year, depending on how things go to finish out the season.
The Browns officially designated RGIII as their player to return from injured reserve last week.
Griffin, 26, signed a two-year, $15 million contract that includes $6.75 million guaranteed. He’ll make a base salary of $3.25 million for the 2016 season.
The Browns will face a decision regarding Griffin next March, as he has a $750,000 roster bonus at that point. If the Browns pick up his bonus, RGIII would be paid a $6 million base salary with $750,000 more being available in per-game bonuses.
This season, Griffin has appeared in one game thrown for 190 yards while completing 12 of 26 pass attempts (46.15 percent) to go along with no touchdowns and an interception. He added another 37 yards rushing for the Browns during the game.
