Robert Griffin III is 32 years old, which is younger than seven current starting quarterbacks in the NFL, yet he was out of the league entirely last season. But he’s been largely on the sidelines since 2016.
His career started off extremely well, winning Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2012, before knee injuries and concussions greatly impacted his career. But back in 2012, RGIII was the bee’s knees.
Unfortunately, Griffin started 15 games his first year, 13 in his second, seven in his third season, and five the next. He’d only start two more games in his career. For all the quarterbacks who linger for several seasons as a backup, one would think RG3 would always be able to get a gig, until he no longer has the desire.
