As of Thursday, the Jets weren’t on the radar screen of quarterback Robert Griffin III. He likely wasn’t on theirs.
But with the Jets trying to put the squeeze on Ryan Fitzpatrick and with Griffin trying to build a market elsewhere, it’s no shock that the two sides have opted to go through the motions of a visit.
Via Dom Cosentino of NJ.com, the Jets are describing it as “due diligence,” and that they remain focused on working out a contract with Fitzpatrick.
Griffin, per multiple reports, is interested in the Broncos, 49ers, and Rams. None of the three, however, have shown interest in Griffin, yet. Maybe this gets one or more of them to move.
The real question with Griffin is whether he still has the ability to run like he did in 2012, before tearing his ACL for a second time. He hasn’t done much in three seasons since then to show anyone that he could be anything close to the guy he once was.
