Robert Griffin III has been rumored with multiple teams but not the Chiefs

New, comments

When Robert Griffin III was released by Washington before free agency, multiple NFL reporters suggested that Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs would be the best fit. Get RGIII into KC, let him sit for a year or two as Andy Reid helps turn his career around.

While the Chiefs may still be a great fit, they're not being mentioned. RGIII took a visit to the New York Jets when the Ryan Fitzpatrick talks stalled and it's been reported that the Cleveland Browns are doing some digging on him. His name came up in San Francisco when there were talks of trading Colin Kaepernick.

No mention there of the Chiefs, who apparently aren't in on the RGIII sweepstakes. The fit with Andy Reid would make sense but the rest of it doesn't make a lot of sense in KC. RGIII would not be starting with Alex Smith as the clear starter. He's young enough now where he can probably hope to be a starter some place (as evidenced by the one thing in common the teams interested in him have: no quarterback).

The Chiefs also have two years invested in backup Aaron Murray and three into Tyler Bray, who received a contract extension just six months ago. RGIII's ceiling is higher than both but the Chiefs are going to throw away so much work on those two players that they like well enough to succeed Chase Daniel as the No. 2 in KC.

So far no RGIII talk in KC.
