Robert Griffin III has been without an NFL team since January, but that doesn’t mean the former Ravens backup is done with football. In fact, Griffin is so eager to resume playing that he’d jump at the opportunity to return to Washington, where he began his career and lasted just four polarizing seasons muddled by injuries and reported internal disputes. Griffin joined “The Adam Schefter Podcast” on Tuesday to explain, saying he “would love to go back and be able to have that come full circle” in the wake of Ryan Fitzpatrick’s injury.

“When I see all these opportunities, guys maximizing (them), that’s what I wanna get to,” Griffin told Schefter, referencing career resurgences from veterans like Ryan Tannehill and Nick Foles. “I know this year, I mean it’s the season, (so) you’re not competing to be [a] quote-unquote starter in the season, so for me, it’s about … a team has an injury or they wanna bring me in, (that’d be) awesome. I’m on board for that.”
