The first free agent visit for quarterback Robert Griffin III is with the Jets.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Griffin is scheduled to visit the Jets today.
Griffin, the former Offensive Rookie of the Year whose career flamed out in Washington, became a free agent when he was released this week. There’s been a great deal of speculation about where he could land, with the Rams, Broncos and 49ers all mentioned as possibilities.
But the Jets, who appear unwilling to pay Ryan Fitzpatrick the kind of money he’s looking for, will be the first team to bring him in for a visit.
Griffin has looked like a shell of his former self since the injury that ended his rookie season, and last year he didn’t play a single snap. But there was once a time when he was one of the league’s brightest young stars. He may get a chance to show that stardom again, in New York.
