INDIANAPOLIS Now that the Washington Redskins have gone on record with the inevitable _ they plan to release quarterback Robert Griffin III _ the question is where will the former Heisman Trophy winner end up?
Redskins defensive tackle Jason Hatcher thinks the former Baylor star would be a good fit with his former team, the Dallas Cowboys, who are looking for a veteran backup quarterback to play behind Tony Romo.
"I think so," Hatcher said. "It would be great. He has learned a lot. He is chomping at the bit to get back out there. He is not just a running quarterback anymore. I definitely think he would be a good fit in Dallas. And it is kind of home for him."
Hatcher said Griffin leaned a lot and matured a lot during the 2015 season when he was benched for Kirk Cousins. Hatcher thinks it will only make Griffin better when he gets his chance to play again.
Never miss a local story.
"Robert handled it well," Hatcher said. "Controversy will test your character. He showed what kind of guy he was. I’m proud of him. I tell people all the time when he gets his opportunity again in the right system he is going to thrive."
