WHEN the Redskins cut QB Robert Griffin III the Eagles should sign him immediately. Not only does that mean we can move on from the Tim Tebow fiasco, but maybe Matt Barkley and Mark Sanchez as well. (Although I would seek to package Sanchez with a draft pick and trade him to a QB needy team like Houston, or as an insurance policy to a win now team like Arizona.)
Griffin as an Eagle gives the front office leverage in keeping QB Sam Bradford’s asking price reasonable. Though Griffin is no longer the runner he once was, he still has more than enough wheels to give the team the two-point conversion weapon the head coach craves in Tebow, while not sacrificing having a legit QB on the field. After all we aren’t talking about replacing Bradford here. We’re talking about replacing Tebow, Barkley and maybe Sanchez. The signing would be a no-lose scenario.
The only drawback would be for fans to get used to rooting for a guy they’re used to rooting against and mocking. All the best Redskins memes on social media and on this site, would have to stop. Then again if it makes this team deeper and more dangerous, I’m more than willing to learn to mock Cuddin’ Kirk and his head coach Fatty Jay.
If they cut RGnumber, or even (oh I don’t know) ask for say a 4th or 5th rounder, I say jump at it. I mean seriously what are we losing in that gamble? Look at our draft picks after round 3 for the last 3 years. Even a trade of a 4 or a 5 would be like stealing the guy; and who among you wouldn’t like to see us fleece the Redskins?
