NFL rumors have been swirling around Robert Griffin III. The Washington Redskins finally released the embattled quarterback and are now focused on Kirk Cousins as their starter. Though he has been an underachiever since coming into the National Football League, Griffin III is still young enough and talented enough to turn things around. According to the Sporting News, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams thinks he should get that chance with his team.
Terrance Williams knows Robert Griffin III better than most NFL players know the quarterback. The two of them played together for the Baylor Bears. Williams caught 202 passes in college, and a lot of those were thrown by Griffin III. Not only would the chemistry between Griffin III and Williams already be there, the camaraderie would also be as well. The relationship between the two is one of the biggest reasons why Williams wants the Dallas Cowboys to sign Griffin III.
When Tony Romo and Dez Bryant were on the field, Terrance Williams is a qualified starter in the NFL. However, there were a handful of games last season where the Dallas Cowboys did not have their starting quarterback or star wide receiver. When that happened, Williams struggled to take over as the lead wide receiver for the Cowboys. With a familiar face like Robert Griffin III around, Williams should fare much better in the off chance that Romo and Bryant are injured again next season.
Signing Robert Griffin III isn't just about next season. It's about the following seasons as well. It would behoove Jerry Jones to lock down Robert Griffin III as soon as he proves that he's a capable NFL quarterback again. Despite what everyone is saying to the public, Tony Romo is not going to be around forever. Another collarbone or back injury could see him retiring from the National Football League, which leaves the Cowboys with a need at quarterback unless the team can groom someone like Griffin III.
Robert Griffin III deserves another chance in the NFL. With starting caliber quarterbacks being rare nowadays, someone is going to give him that chance. Griffin III seems like a really good kid, so a lot of people are rooting for him to finally become a star in the National Football League.
