Former Washington Commanders Quarterback Trying To Join Group Bidding For Team

Earlier this week, there were finally official bids made for the Washington Commanders.

One bid came from a group while another came from a lone billionaire.

Each bid was for $6 billion, which would make the purchase the most expensive in US history for a sports franchise.

Now it looks like a former player for the Commanders wants to join the group that is trying to buy the team.

Robert Griffin III revealed that he is in talks to be a part of the Josh Harris group during an appearance on the Rich Eisen Show earlier this week.

I’m head over heels about that process. To be a player for that team, to not have my career to go the way that I wanted it to, or the fans wanted it to, it would be a full circle type of moment to come back and try to help that team and that organization build the winner that the fans deserve.

The Washington Commanders made RG3 the 2nd overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and it looked early on like that pick was going to pay off in a big way.

He made the Pro Bowl as a rookie, but that was unfortunately the peak of his career.

2 years later, the Commanders released him and he signed with the Cleveland Browns.

His struggles continued in Cleveland and he was released by the Browns after one season.

He spent the next 3 years with the Ravens before his career came to an end.

Now he’ll try and join the ownership group of the team he began his NFL career with.
