Browns sign RG3
In a somewhat surprising move, Robert Griffin III found his new home on Thursday as he agreed to join the Cleveland Browns.
The two came to terms on a two-year deal that will pay RG3 $6.75 million guaranteed and can earn him up to $15 million in incentives, according to ESPN. Cleveland is likely to have RG3 enter training camp as the starting quarterback with a rookie as his backup.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Browns are currently listed with the longest odds of any NFL team to win Super Bowl LI, as they have 200/1 odds to win it all. They also have 100/1 odds to win the AFC Championship and an over/under of 4.5 wins for the 2016 season.
Griffin spent his first four seasons in the NFL with the Washington Redskins, topping out with his rookie season when he threw for 3,200 yards and 20 touchdowns while rushing for 815 yards and seven scores. A knee injury at the end of 2012 stuck with him, as he was never the same quarterback again. He played in just 22 games over the last three years and didn’t see any action in 2015. He has thrown for 8,097 yards and 40 touchdowns in his career with 23 interceptions while rushing for 1,480 yards and eight scores.
