No Deal Between Chargers & QB Robert Griffin III, Despite “Positive” Workout


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that free agent QB Robert Griffin III had a “positive” workout for the Chargers on Tuesday, but there was no move made following the session.

A Chargers source tells Josina Anderson that RGIII had a good workout for them: “It was a good workout.We are still weighing all of our options before camp. We are always looking to upgrade.”

We just wanted to make sure he’s healthy and moving around well,” Anderson’s source added. “Young man can move. He’s athletic, threw the ball well but he’s not the only QB available. Not sure we’ll add another quarterback or not.


ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Chargers have scheduled a workout with free agent QB Robert Griffin III for Tuesday.

According to Schefter, Griffin has been working out in Florida with former-Colts and Stanford OC Pep Hamilton.

Last week, Mike Freeman of B/R, reported that RGIII was starting to draw some “mild interest” around the NFL and there are some teams want to see what he has left.

As of now, the Chargers have Kellen Clemens as Philip Rivers backup.

Griffin, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Redskins back in 2012. He spent four years in Washington before signing a two-year, $15 million contract that includes $6.75 million guaranteed with the Browns back in March of last year.

RGIII was set to make a base salary of $6 million for the 2017 season when the Browns released him this past March.

In 2016, Griffin appeared in five games thrown for 886 yards while completing 59.2 percent his passes to go along with two touchdowns and three interceptions. He’s also added 190 yards rushing and two touchdowns for the Browns.
