The Browns will be without Deshaun Watson for the remainder of the season after the quarterback underwent surgery to repair a shoulder injury.
At 6-3, the playoffs are very much in reach for Cleveland, but without their starting quarterback, the path to the postseason will be significantly more difficult.
Robert Griffin III thinks he’d be able to provide some cover for the Browns, should they reach out.
Griffin argued that, at 33, he has strong game knowledge and has learned from the mistakes he made during his playing career.
“Deshaun Watson went 14-for-14 in the second half against the Baltimore Ravens... Of those 14 passes, there weren’t really any of them that you would say were $230 million worthy passes.
Although the team named Dorian Thompson-Robinson as its starter, Griffin made clear that he thinks he’s more than capable of filling the void left behind by Watson.
It’s not the first time Griffin has pitched his case to return to the NFL this season, having presented a similar argument to the Jets in the aftermath of Aaron Rodgers’ injury.
