A six-year pro, Griffin III hasn’t played a full season since his rookie campaign and has failed to obtain a winning record since that time. The former Heisman winner lead the Washington Redskins to the playoffs, but suffered a torn ACL in the wild-card game. The following year saw an ankle injury followed by a concussion caused him to plummet on the depth chart in 2015, effectively ending his Washington career.
The Chargers already have three other quarterbacks operating beneath frontman Philip Rivers. A team plagued with their own injuries, it’s difficult to fathom LA giving RGIII a chance, especially since his body has been riddled with his own. Through his time in the NFL, Griffin has struggled to develop as an adequate pocket quarterback; his advanced age at 27 makes it unlikely that he ever will.
Through his career, Griffin III has thrown for 8,983 yards for 42 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.
