Back when the Kansas City Chiefs first hired Andy Reid I said that free agency is going to be fun because quarterbacks are often connected to Reid because he's seen as a quarterback future of sorts. Think of how he helped revitalize Michael Vick's career or the Kevin Kolb trade. Yeah, it was a while ago but people can't get past that.
So, Robert Griffin III has been cut by Washington. Didn't I tell you that the Chiefs would be involved in these rumors?
NFL Network's Albert Breer thinks KC makes sense.
I know @JeffDarlington has mentioned it, I'd echo his sentiment -- Chiefs look to me like the best fit for Robert Griffin III.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 7, 2016
NFL insider and Houston Chronicle reporter Aaron Wilson thinks so.
Chiefs make a lot of sense for Robert Griffin III to relaunch career— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) March 7, 2016
Former Eagles scout under Andy Reid and Bay Area radio dude John Middlekauff thinks so too.
We did a ton of studies on RG3 when he was coming out in Philly. Andy LOVED him. Be shocked if KC is not in the mix— John Middlekauff (@JohnMiddlekauff) March 7, 2016
If I am RG3 the 2 places I would want to go and attempt to save my career are: SF or KC. Don't see any other great fits— John Middlekauff (@JohnMiddlekauff) March 7, 2016
Eagles fans who spent a lot of time following Andy Reid agree.
RGIII should get on the first plane to KC and go work something out with Andy Reid.— Tommy Lawlor (@lawlornfl) March 7, 2016
Others have mentioned KC too. We talked about this here. I think the only way this makes sense is if RGIII is willing to sign a one or two year deal in order to rebuild his career. Get some stability with Andy Reid and the Chiefs. Sit behind Alex Smith, who actually has a similar style of play as RGIII. The Chiefs are a good team with a solid defense so if Alex is hurt and RGIII plays, he has a good chance of being successful. The upside is that RGIII likely has a higher ceiling than Chase Daniel. The downside? Chase is probably more of a sure thing at this point and that counts for a lot. Teams can't always take a risk at the quarterback position (as KC has shown us over the past 30 years).
