Robert Griffin III: 'I'm ready for my next opportunity'

By  | 

Almost exactly five years ago Baylor's Robert Griffin III won the Heisman Trophy.

The following April he was drafted by the Washington Redskins, where he won rookie of the year and led them to the playoffs.

But subsequent injuries led to his departure from Washington and then Cleveland.

The Copperas Cove native isn’t on an NFL roster and hasn’t taken a snap in 2017, but that doesn’t mean he thinks his career is over.

Yesterday on ESPN’S Fist Take, Griffin told Steven A. Smith he's 100-percent healthy and ready to play in the NFL.

He said that if a team called him today he'd be ready to go.

He also said he had offers from the Cardinals and Ravens before the season, but it wasn't the right fit.
