Cleveland Browns Sign QB Robert Griffin III

The Cleveland Browns find themselves with yet another new starting QB - except this time, Robert Griffin III might actually be around a while.  The Browns and RG3 agreed on a two year deal and if all goes well, I would imagine he is the centerpiece of yet another rebuild attempt in Cleveland.

TE Gary Barnidge will be his #1 option on offense, and as of right now, the Browns have no real WR1 and they lost Travis Benjamin in free agency, so expect them to draft one.  Duke Johnson could catch a ton of passes out of the backfield regardless of what happens at WR.

Josh Gordon has not been reinstated yet by the NFL.
Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon applied to the league for reinstatement from the suspension that kept him out for the entire 2015 season two months ago, but there has not been a ruling from the league on Gordon’s application at this point. - ProFootballTalk
RG3 is not going to be a QB to target in fantasy football drafts, unless you play in a 2QB league.  We have no idea how healthy he really is and if the Browns organization wants him to use his legs.  I do expect him to be one of the first players added off waivers should he go undrafted in your league.
