The Washington Redskins have cleared Robert Griffin III, team president Bruce Allen said as much on WTOP earlier this morning. There has been nothing but drama surrounding the quarterback position in D.C. over the month or so, but Kirk Cousins is definitively the starter this season. With Robert’s clearance (now), it remains to see who will be the “QB2” on the depth chart and if the third QB will dress for games. All that should be answered over the next couple of days, but as far as the big picture goes, what do the Redskins do with Griffin?
Allen says Robert Griffin III has been cleared to play. Said they got the clearance last night from the doctors. #Redskins

The organization has a decision to make, trade, cut or release RG3. If Washington keeps him, there will be no shortage of drama since he’ll always be a few bad snaps from getting back on the field. It may be hard to trade him du to the cap hit the opposing team would have to take, just as if Washington releases him. Now if he’s released, what if he’s picked up by a rival team within the division? Again, no shortage of drama in the media. A source of never ending content for scribes covering the division.

Gruden said in a press conference earlier today that he’ll make a decision on Robert’s place on the QB depth chart on Sunday, Again, more drama until then. Unless of course he’s moved by then.
Gruden said he doesn’t intend to announce whether Griffin will be the backup or the third stringer vs. the #Dolphins until Sunday.
