Well, to be more precise, he has not been cut and there is no clear player fighting for his position, though if you are a backup, roster-crunch can claim your job regardless.
To me, this is great news. There has never been a doubt of RGIII’s talent. Yet I’ve seen players with year one injuries wash out and never return in a brutal, meritocracy based league.
Griffin’s story is one of personal, physical and mental recovery as a talented young guy with the world in front of him was dealt a set of jokers. You would be remiss to not mention that RGIII was (by many accounts) probably his own worst enemy in his comeback from injury while he was still in Washington. Ok. Now the kid has found a way to leverage his skills with an NFL club that didn’t have him on their radar when he first came into the league.
All jobs in the NFL are week to week.
Well played mate, well played.
