Robert Griffin worked out for Jaguars on Monday

So why did the Ravens move when they did to do a deal with quarterback Robert Griffin III? The Ravens apparently were concerned that another team would make a move on signing him.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Jaguars worked out Griffin on Monday. That workout came only three days after the Ravens worked out Griffin, the second overall pick in the 2012 draft.

It’s unclear whether the Jaguars had offered Griffin a contract, or whether they planned to do so.

Jacksonville currently has only two quarterbacks on the roster — Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler, who recently arrived from the Browns for a conditional seventh-round draft pick.

Cut by Washington after four years with the team, Griffin spent one season in Cleveland. He was out of football in 2017.

  1. Will be interesting if they even close the deal…. or it was just a smokescreen for the Kaepernick deposition. Ozzie said he had just been in the building but won’t sign till next week

  2. I had been saying, the Jaguars would be a great place for RG3 to go and backup Bortles-and possibly succeed him if his play warranted it. And I have no doubt that it probably would have. But I don’t like just taking a mans job-he should be allowed to lose it though. The NFL is a muddy business.

  3. AND the Texans should work him out too! He is the guy the Texans most certainly should have on hand behind Watson-so they don’t have to rush his recovery. I mean same thing happened to Griffin his rookie season and rushing back was not good, coupled with a brand new system to learn.

  4. It would be nice to see what Griffin is capable of on a somewhat decent team. The guy had to play with the redskins / shanahan and the browns. Even Brady wouldnt have been successful on either of those teams. Best of luck!

  5. RG 3 will get hurt in practice or pre-season. The guy can’t stay healthy and even when he plays he below average.

  6. Why do football teams think they can magically make this jerk competent – he has no skills to play professional football as a QB – he might be able to pick up dirty towels or mow the grass, but he’s simply unfit for any position on the team playing a real game.

    Now if you need someone in training camp to hit, I say, go for it.

  7. If Rg3 never played for Shanahan and the system he used to showcase his talents he would of been cut and out of the league in his 3rd year.

    What an incompetent statement. The Shanahans were losers two solid years before Griffin came. 6-10, 5-11 They wisely understood that Griffin had mastered what he did in college. And since they needed to start him to save their jobs, they had to get him playing at a high level soon. They took RG3’S system he ran with Briles (not their system) and implemented SOME of it. They won the division-with his play and what he already did well. He should have been allowed more time like Andrew Luck to get fully well. Griffin and the skins went 10-6 with the same team practically. I think Shanahan learned something from Griffin and how to get the best out of his QB’s.
