Robert Griffin III is headed to Cleveland. RGIII signed with the Browns to be their next quarterback. While he considered replacing Peyton Manning at the Denver Broncos, HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop why RGIII thinks Cleveland is the right team for him!
The Cleveland Browns have just solved their quarterback problem. Robert Griffin III, 26, will leave the Washington Redskins behind to replace the troubled Johnny Manziel, 23, in the Rock and Roll Capital of the World. While some fans might look down on the Browns, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that RGIII sees Cleveland as the prefect place to stage a comeback!
“There is more room for error…with the Cleveland Browns,” a source close to the Heisman Trophy winner EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. “He was considering signing with the Denver Broncos, but since they just came off a Super Bowl Victory, the team is looking to get back there immediately.” Plus, there’s plenty of pressure on anyone who follows in Peyton Manning‘s, 39, footsteps and that’s something Robert wants to avoid.
RGIII, who was considered one of the hottest prospects in the NFL, hasn’t found success. He led Washington to the NFC East title in his rookie year, according to ESPN, but injuries and poor performances bumped him down to the team’s No. 3 quarterback. Be ready for game day with a gridiron playlist after .
He was cut from the team on March 7 and it really has messed with his head. “He needs to feel confident again,” the source tells HollywoodLife.com. After all, RGIII hasn’t really lived up to the hype surrounding him. “Signing with the Cleveland Browns,” the source adds, “gives him the best-case scenario to make the comeback he desperately wants to happen.”
