I feel for RG III,although he’s a millionaire and I’m not.

Wow.

Maybe they can re-hire Johnny Football as a QB coach, too.

Don’t they have a high draft pick to try rebuilding with?

I hope the Cowboys sign him as a backup for ROmo.

And keep Hardy.

What is it with Cleveland constantly signing over priced under performing QBs? Bengals and Steelers fans have to love it though.

While I believe Griffin is a stand up guy, and I’d like to see him succeed, his career has been profoundly predictable:

Early success, followed by a string if injuries contributed to by his excessive reliance on running. You simply can’t do that in the NFL unless you’re a freak of nature. Griffin is a superb athlete, but he’s not at the level where he can escape hits 98% of the time.

Being on the Browns pretty much seals his fate.

Will you all quit the Browns bashing? Hue Jackson is a no nonsense coach who will rebuild the Browns from the ground up. RGIII is a fantastic pickup that will outclass the past 5 quarterbacks put together. Go Browns! Go Dof Pound!

I question how “stand up” Griffin is. Few of his teammates were clamoring for his return. He also got caught sexting a Hooters waitress in Richmond VA the night before his wedding. The media quickly buried that story.

The Brown suck without RGIII. They will suck even more with him.

I think you are ignoring the impact of poor coaching and poor teams.

What? How does Jeff Garcia deserve to be on that list? No way.

And while not the best quarterback, Trent Dilfer won a Super Bowl.

I just hope this stops them from drafting another first round quarterback failure and draft the best athlete at his position remaining on the board. Drafting for need locks your mindset into the “prettiest girl at the bar at 2am” phenomenon

Just when you think the Browns can’t get any worse. . . .

For his sake, hopefully a decent rehab clinic has.
