Robert Griffin III's career with the Washington Redskins has been  troubled to say the least, but with the quarterback once again injured, could the team be ready to look elsewhere?

Griffin was drafted second overall by the Redskins in 2012 and since then has failed to live up to the promise he entered the league with.

Who is to blame?

Griffin has struggled once again this pre-season as he has once again fallen to an injury thanks in part to a lacklustre offensive line.

It now seems that Kirk Cousins is set to start under centre for the Redskins in their week one opener against the Miami Dolphins.

Everyone has been wondering how long RGIII will last in Washington for some time now and it appears his fate may soon be decided.

Sources have confirmed that the Redskins have held talks over a possible trade for the troubled quarterback.

The rumours seem to indicate that the organisation have held trade talks with a number of teams but have failed to find any interested in him.

There are also reports coming out of Washington that claim that the higher ups might be unwilling to trade him anyway.

Only time will tell if the Redskins do find a team willing to take their troubled quarterback but it will be interesting to see what they are offered if they do.

In the meantime for Redskins fans, they will have to accept Kirk Cousins as their starting quarterback and hope he can lead them to a better season than 2014.

Franchise in trouble

It seems that no-one knows what is going on with the Redskins and they have been a franchise in trouble for a long time.

The team needs a saviour and they need one desperately but who will be the man to step up?
