The Houston Texans are a rumored destination for Robert Griffin III, but should the team be in the market for the dual threat QB?
Reports are flying around as to where the once heralded Robert Griffin III may land now that the former quarterback and face-of-the-franchise is on the outs in Washington. Naturally, the kid who played high school and college ball in Texas is being linked to his home-state teams, the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans.
Looking from RG3‘s perspective, landing in Houston would probably seem more ideal as there is a better chance to become the long-term starter as early as 2016.

After taking the league by storm in 2012, Griffin has fallen from grace like no star before him. His rookie stats were amazing. 3,200 passing yards with 20 touchdowns and just five interceptions paired with 815 yards rushing and seven rushing touchdowns made him look unstoppable.
Then knee issues set in for the dual-threat star and he was far less effective during his remaining time in D.C. The poor play was overshadowed by his feud with head coach Mike Shanahan, which led to the perception Griffin was treated different than other players on the roster.
It all culminated in a 2015 season that saw Washington leave RG3 inactive for all but one game, and he played zero snaps. The team wouldn’t play him in fear an injury would cost them his $16 million guaranteed salary. Yet, they couldn’t cut him, possibly because they feared he would go to a rival and beat them.
That lets you know the kid can still play. And he will be just 26 years old when the 2016 season starts. So we turn the idea of a young, dual-threat QB over to you the fans. Is it worth any potential headache to bring in RG3? Or has he learned his lesson about being a team player? Let us know in the poll below where you stand!
