Bruce Allen: Robert Griffin III Will Get 'Opportunity With Another Team' In 2016

Posted Feb 23, 2016

Washington Redskins team President Bruce Allen this week said he expects quarterback Robert Griffin III to have a chance to "excel in the future" with another team.

Washington Redskins team President Bruce Allen this week said he expects quarterback Robert Griffin III to have a chance to "excel in the future" with another team.

The Washington Redskins have until March 9 to cut Robert Griffin III and general manager Scot McCloughan has said the team will take advantage of that period before making a decision, though the quarterback’s impending departure is all but a formality at this point.

Team president Bruce Allen confirmed as much on Tuesday during a radio appearance on the Dan Sileo Show, which airs on The Mighty 1090 in San Diego.

Allen was asked if Griffin III would be on the roster next season.

“Well, no, I see Robert getting an opportunity with another team,” Allen said. “We’ve heard from some teams that are interested. I think he’s going to have a choice of a couple teams that will let him excel in the future.”

The Redskins will not absorb any of the approximate $16.2 million salary Griffin III is due in 2016 by cutting him before the March 9 deadline. There is no rush to cut him before then, either, considering a team could make the Redskins an offer for Griffin III.

Griffin III, who was active for just one game last season and did not play a single snap, was buried on the depth chart as the No. 3 quarterback and managed to stay out of the spotlight.

“From the very beginning, Robert has handled himself like a professional,” Allen said. “When we drafted him all the way through, he’s been a good teammate and a good guy. I know some people on the outside always like to be critical, but his teammates like him, his coaches like him and he does have some special talents and we wish him well.”

Meanwhile, the Redskins‘ priority this offseason is working out a long-term deal with Cousins following his breakout season. Though the two sides are yet to reach a solution, Allen remained confident the Redskins will get a deal done. The other option is to use the franchise tag, which projects to be roughly $19 million for quarterbacks next season.

“Kirk said he wants to be a Redskin and we want him to be a Redskin and these things usually work themselves out about this time or in the next few weeks,” Allen said. “We’re pretty confident with that.”
