In 2012, Robert Griffin III was the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year. In 2017, the former Heisman winner has yet to appear on an NFL roster, let alone take a snap. But that doesn’t mean he’s done with football. In fact, Griffin revealed Tuesday on ESPN that he turned down offers from two teams — the Baltimore Ravens and the Arizona Cardinals — before the season. “I had interest in the offseason, it just wasn’t the right fit,” Griffin told Michael Smith and Jemele Hill on SC 6. “And I had to make that decision for myself. Look, if I don’t accept this offer, there’s a chance I won’t play football this year.” Griffin wasn’t definitive on when the offer from the Cardinals came in, but he did indicate it was after they signed free agent Blaine Gabbert, who inked a one-year deal May 10. The 27-year-old then offered an explanation on why Arizona wasn’t the right situation.
