The Denver Broncos have reached out to quarterback Robert Griffin III and he may be visiting Denver soon, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Denver is suddenly in desperate need of a quarterback following the retirement of Peyton Manning and backup Brock Osweiler just signing with the Houston Texans, and Griffin leads the list of remaining available quarterbacks. Save for him, there really isn’t anybody except veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick and, perhaps, Brian Hoyer. Denver has also been linked to potentially exploring a trade for Colin Kaepernick.
And Denver would certainly be an interesting fit for Griffin, whose value as a dual-threat quarterback crashed and burned after tearing knee ligaments at the end of his rookie season in 2012. Coach Gary Kubiak runs a zone-blocking offense that relies heavily on the running game and play-action passes, which is well out of Griffin’s comfort zone.
Campus Sports will update this story as it develops, but one thing is certain.
When it comes to Robert Griffin III, any team that signs him will be taking a huge gamble.
