Robert Griffin III hasn’t been promised the starting quarterback job in Cleveland, but heading into training camp, it’s his job to lose.
Longtime Browns reporter Tony Grossi said this morning on PFT Live that Griffin will get four out of every five reps with the first-string offense at Browns camp. That strongly suggests that coach Hue Jackson is heading into camp with the idea that Griffin is his starter, and will only change his mind if something surprising happens.
At the moment, the Browns’ depth chart appears to have Griffin on top, Josh McCown second, rookie third-round draft pick Cody Kessler third and Austin Davis fourth, the story said. As the story also indicated, this is Griffin's job to lose and his chances of keeping it got a little better with what looks like the return of WR Josh Gordon. Griffin is ranked just 30th on our list but has potential to climb a bit if things continue to trend in his favor.
