Redskins GM Scot McCloughan annouced at a Monday news conference that the team will exercise the fifth-year option for Robert Griffin III ahead of next Monday's deadline. However, McCloughan said the decision "does not affect our draft process whatsoever."
According to NFL Media's Albert Breer, the cost -- $16.1 million -- is viewed by the club as a discount version of the franchise tag and may give them one more season to make a clear evaluation.
Allowing a player of Griffin's caliber to walk before you are certain he is no longer the same player he was as a rookie would be foolish. New general manager Scot McCloughan is not willing to take that chance.
This will keep RG3 with the team through the 2016 season.

Week 17 - Griffin vs. Dallas
Robert Griffin III put together another decent, real-life performance, although his fantasy numbers didn't prove a whole lot. He finish with 220 yards throwing and 11 rushing yards but helped the Skins upset the Eagles last week.
Washington ended up with three rushing TDs, including two short ones from fullback Darrel Young. Griffin did throw an INT, his fourth of the season. This week, RGIII gets the Cowboys in what isn't a bad matchup on paper. The 'Boys don't have a ton to play for this week but do plan to play starters according to reports. You have to imagine at some point RGIII will see time against backups, increasing his value a bit. While Dallas doesn't have much to play for, RGIII is playing for a job - somewhere. That's all you can ask from a starting QB in Week 17. He's still a risky play but should see a full game's worth of snaps.
