Jay Gruden says Washington could draft a QB

Robert Griffin III has had an up and down career in the NFL so far to say the least.

The Washington Redskins quarterback reached the heights of a Pro Bowl appearance in his rookie season, but he also fell to the lows of momentarily being the third best QB in the capital in 2013.

Thankfully for RG3, he is the starting signal caller for Washington headed into the 2015 NFL season, but that fact may not be true for long.

In a frank and honest interview on Thursday, head coach Jay Gruden spoke at length about Washington's plans for the draft.

It is unlikely that the Redskins will decide to pick up a quarterback in this year's draft, but when asked about his team doing exactly that with their fifth overall pick, Gruden did admit that if the right guy is available they will do exactly that.

"If we think it's worth the risk to hit the reset button, if he's that good of a football player, if we decide in the building that he's that good of a football player that we think we should do that, then we should do that," Gruden told

Robert Griffin III was a revelation in 2012 when he led the Washington Redskins to the NFC East title, but since then his career has been plagued by injuries.

In fact, it was at the end of the 2012 NFL season in the January of 2013 when things began to unravel for him.

After suffering a knee injury in the regular season, RG3 then re-injured the same knee in a playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks, and he hasn't been the same player ever since.

But does this fact mean that RG3 can't recover from his woes and become a worthy starter for Washington going forward? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
