RGIII moving from quarterback to safety?

According to NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington, Robert Griffin III participated in defensive schemes as a safety since he was deemed ineligible to play for the Redskins season opener against Miami because of an inflicted concussion three weeks ago.

In following proper protocol, the Redskins have determined that they’re starting quarterback will be Michigan State alum Kirk Cousins with former Longhorn Colt McCoy serving as second string.

If RGIII maintains to injure himself as a safety, the Redskins are required to lend him $16.2 million, but Darlington believes this lateral movement is to keep RGIII on the 53-man roster because of a heavy investment in 2015 worth $3.249 million.

A second overall draft selection in 2012 from Baylor, RGIII has given fans all the more to jeer about, yet nothing to cheer about. After sustaining a knee injury at Baylor and then tweaking it again with the Redskins, RGIII’s time is running out in Washington and some say he’d fit perfectly with Cleveland, Buffalo, Chicago or New York.
