Ever since the Washington Redskins officially cut Robert Griffin III earlier this month, he has been bouncing around the country visiting various teams in the NFL. Now it seems he could be landing in the AFC North with the Cleveland Browns.
FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer reported early Wednesday morning that the general consensus at the NFL owners meetings in Boca Raton is that Griffin is going to be signing with the Browns. This makes for a very interesting scenario when it comes to the NFL Draft.

The Browns were expected to draft a quarterback in April, but if they believe in Griffin, this could change very soon. However, they could be signing Griffin in an attempt to inspire competition for the starting job in 2016.
Griffin has proven himself in the past and if you surround him with decent protection and good weapons, he could really succeed. The Cleveland Browns, however, have a lot of work to do after losing Travis Benjamin to the San Diego Chargers in free agency and not knowing when or if Josh Gordon will return.
Throw in the fact that they lost veteran center Alex Mack to the Atlanta Falcons and the Browns could be looking at some pretty tough times ahead, no matter who their starting quarterback is.
