While Griffin III is still active, he is a backup quarterback for the Ravens and has started only one game over the last three years. In all likelihood, he’ll never come close to reaching the heights of 2012 when he was named Offensive Rookie of the Year, threw for 3,200 yards and ran for 815, and tossed 20 scoring throws while running in seven more. According to RavensWire, he still believes in himself being a reliable starter.
You're also describing Robert Griffin III, albeit he went No. 2. RG3 never got that big second contract. Things change fast in NFL.— John McKelvey (@John_McKelvey) April 27, 2020
Cam Newton (currently out of a job despite an MVP) is another good example.
We'll see. Wish him the best.
