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.

"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."
