After over a season’s worth of talk and expectations, either the best or worst thing for Robert Griffin III’s career just happened to him: He’s been released by the Redskins.
The Redskins have hitched their wagon to Kirk “Kurt” Cousins for at least one year to the tune of $19 million. Maybe they did that because they thought the Eagles would make a run at him, maybe they didn’t. But now RGIII is free to sign with any team in the league that didn’t just drop millions on a QB. Can you imagine how crazy the “RGIII to Philly” rumors would be if Chip was still here? It’d almost be like …
Have long commented on how, with Kaepernick's future not in SF, RG3 would make a lot of sense for Chip Kelly.

If you’re Chip Kelly and Trent Baalke … are you willing to double down with RG3 as Kaepernick's back-up?
