Just as I pledged to post every meaningless but hopeful-feeling quote from Robert Griffin III about coming to D.C., I hereby pledge to post every meaningless but hopeful-feeling quote from NFL analysts predicting that Robert Griffin III comes to D.C.
My first offering comes from John Clayton, who was on Vinny Cerrato’s Baltimore radio show this week, and began talking about the Matt Flynn Sweepstakes.
“You can see how the dynamics go,” Clayton said. “You’re at the mercy of the draft. I would have to think if you’re gonna be Matt Flynn, send a nice thank you to Matt Barkley for making you $12 million, because think about where he would fit in.
“If you’re Cleveland, you do have a chance to trade up to get RGIII, but if you can’t get him, then you might consider Matt Flynn because he’s in that Green Bay West Coast offense system. Seattle, sitting down with the what 11th or 12th pick depending on the coin toss, they’re gonna be out of position to get a quarterback, so I think they’re gonna have to be in the mix. Miami is gonna have to choose between Orton or Matt Flynn.”
“How about Washington” Cerrato interrupted.
“Ah, they’ll trade with St. Louis and get RGIII,” Clayton answered.
