This comes just hours after Jason Reid of the Washington Post, citing multiple people within the Redskins’ organization, reported that HC Jay Gruden is “done” with RGIII.
In Reid’s report, he did mention that owner Dan Synder and president Bruce Allen could Griffin one more shot at being the team’s starter before making a decision regarding his future in Washington.
At this point in time, it’s really hard to say what will happen for Griffin moving forward, but he clearly needs to play much better if given another opportunity to be the team’s starter.
Griffin, 24, has another year remaining on his four-year, $21,119,098 rookie contract, which includes a base salary of $3,269,877 for the 2015 season.
Washington still has the ability to pick up Griffin’s fifth-year option. However, his struggles this season make it seem unlikely that they will be willing to pick it up given that it will run them close to $15 million for the 2016 season.
In five games, RGIII has thrown for 869 yards while completing 69.7 percent of his passes to go along with just two touchdowns and three interceptions. Pro Football Focus has Griffin as the No. 23 ranked quarterback out of 39.
