NFL Notes: Robert Griffin III, Bengals, Chargers, Jaguars


Robert Griffin III

Free agent QB Robert Griffin III tells John McClain of the Houston Chronicle that he believes he could help the Texans at quarterback after they lost Deshaun Watson for the season.

“Deshaun’s an incredible player with a really bright future,” Griffin said. “I feel like I could help him after my experiences with Washington and Cleveland.

“I feel like I could help the team. I know a lot of their guys. I think I can do a lot of things they’ve been doing offensively. Texas is home, and I’ve always got a soft spot in my heart for Texas.”

Griffin added that he’s staying in shape and ready for his next opportunity.

“I’m training and making sure I stay sharp,” Griffin said. “I’m not only staying in shape, but I’m working to get better in the film room, too.

“When my number’s called, I’ll be ready.
