The Redskins will accept anything for RGIII

The career trajectory of quarterback Robert Griffin III continues to head downwards amid rumours of trades and being released by the Washington Redskins.

The former number two overall pick has not been amongst the elite in the NFL since his rookie campaign and now it appears that his time in Washington is up.

Out the door

No-one expects to see RGIII playing in Washington next season and the latest reports claim that the franchise are desperate to avoid that happening too.

It has recently been claimed that the team would be willing to accept any price whatsoever for their troubled quarterback.

Accepting a price as low as a seventh round pick in the draft, the Redskins are looking to ship the former Baylor star.

Griffin is scheduled to earn £16 million this year but that seems highly unlikely with the Redskins expected to cut him before the March 9th deadline.

For that reason, it also seems unlikely that any team would be interested in a trade when they know they could potentially pick him up for free.

Griffin played in nine games in 2015, throwing four touchdowns and six interceptions - showing just how far he has fallen since winning offensive rookie of the season back in 2012.

There a big question over the entire future for RGIII with several teams looking for quarterbacks and some more interesting prospects set to become available.

Rising star

RGIII's fall from grace has paved the way for Kirk Cousins to become not only the starter in Washington, but one of the more explosive quarterbacks in the league.

He led the Redskins to a divisional title and play-off game last year despite falling to a fairly comprehensive defeat by the Green Bay Packers.

Cousins is set to hit free agency this year but it expected that the Redskins will place the franchise tag on him if they can't negotiate a long term deal.
