Jackson said Griffin took responsibility for his failing in Washington and was honest about his mistakes.
Robert Griffin III is moving from one former Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator to another after signing a contract with the Cleveland Browns today that, according to ESPN.com, is for two years. Griffin's decline began in his second season after he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the playoffs as a rookie and needed surgery. He was released on March 7.
Schefter also reports with RGIII going to Cleveland, Josh McCown would be available in a trade. "I'm excited about that, and when it comes to what I need to work on, I'm excited to have another opportunity to grow ... that's big, and I just need to go out and prove it". I can help a young guy, but it's not my focus.
RG3 wrote that "I cherish the opportunity to get another chance to play this attractive game". Should the team still decide to go with quarterbacks Carson Wentz or Jared Goff at No. 2, Griffin would seemingly be OK with being in a situation where he is on the roster with a high draft pick at the quarterback position. I just want to go out and help this team win football games and I believe in what coach Hue is preaching, I believe in Pep Hamilton and what they intend to do.
After Robert Griffin III was selected as the second overall pick by the Washington Redskins, Cleveland rushed to the podium to select running back Trent Richardson of Alabama.

On Griffin: "He was and is a tremendous player". "It's about the team, it's about coach", Griffin said. "I love the guy". Griffin was drafted No2 overall in the 2012 draft behind another hugely talented quarterback, Andrew Luck.
The Browns cut ties with quarterback Johnny Manziel, who was picked No. 22 in the 2014 NFL Draft. Austin Davis and Connor Shaw are the other quarterbacks on the Browns roster. But, as is always the case with that position in Cleveland, nothing stands still. Last season, he was inactive 15 games and dressed but did not play in another. He was Baltimore's quarterbacks coach for Joe Flacco's first two seasons. He was benched last season behind Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy. He set out to restore his name - and image - with the hope there would be a next chance.
"I have told RG III, whatever we decide to do is what we do, " he said.
