Power Take: RG3 could be the right fit for Bills’ backup situation

Robert Griffin III will draw interest from several teams once Washington announces his release, which has been inevitable since last season.

Early signs pointed toward him landing in Dallas, where Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would welcome the former Heisman Trophy winner back to his home state.

RG3 had reached a critical stage in his career, and he should consider numerous factors before he makes a final decision. He needs to find a team that will give him an opportunity while playing the style of offense that allows him to succeed. It’s the best way to get his once-promising career back on course.

It makes you wonder if Buffalo, of all places, might actually be the right place for the former second pick overall. The Bills may not be interested, but they should keep close watch on the situation for one simple reason: Griffin, more than any other quarterback in the league, plays like Tyrod Taylor.

Both quarterbacks rely on mobility for their effectiveness. Both also leave themselves vulnerable to injury. If Taylor gets injured, RG3 appears most capable of making a seamless transition that keeps the playbook intact.
