Robert Griffin III to workout with LA Chargers


Robert Griffin III to workout with LA Chargers

When Robert Griffin III draws interest from the Chargers and Kaepernick doesn't, it's impossible to explain the interest in one and not the other.

Griffin started five games for the Cleveland Browns past year, throwing more interceptions than touchdowns and leading the team to a 1-4 record.

Griffin began the 2016 season as the Browns starting quarterback. In five starts he completed 59 percent of his passes for 886 yards, 2 touchdowns, 3 interceptions, and totaled 190 yards rushing with 2 touchdowns. If Griffin shows something in his workout with the team, he'll likely get a chance to try and win that job away from Clemens in camp.

Griffin wouldn't be the starter for the Chargers, and would be auditioning for a role as Phillip Rivers' backup as the Chargers make their debut with a new home.

He missed the majority of the season due to a shoulder injury. Although he played better in four games at the end of the season, he admitted that his injury had not fully healed.

The 2012 Offensive Rookie of the Year has been plagued by injuries since his impressive National Football League debut, including multiple concussions, an ACL tear, an ankle fracture and a fractured scapula.

Additionally, Griffin missed three quarters of the season a year ago in his lone season with the Browns, and it'd be interesting to see how the Chargers view his durability after another injury-plagued season.
