Robert Griffin III to Chiefs predictions already coming in

New, comments

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.

NFL insider and Houston Chronicle reporter Aaron Wilson thinks so.

Former Eagles scout under Andy Reid and Bay Area radio dude John Middlekauff thinks so too.

Eagles fans who spent a lot of time following Andy Reid agree.

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).
