The Cleveland Browns have taken a chance on RG3 by signing him to a two-year deal worth $15 million. This came with a $6.75 million guarantee. One has to wonder what his role will end up being with the team. I can tell you that a lot of Browns fans are not happy about it:
Of all the @Browns off season moves and losses, if they get rid of Josh McCown I’ll boycott the season. I don’t want RG3 as the QB Veteran!

RG3 to Cleveland…

According to Jeff Darlington of the NFL Network both the Cleveland Browns and Robert Griffin III believe that he will be starting at the beginning of the regular season. Why else pay that much money for a back up quarterback honestly:
If and when RG3 signs with the Browns today, I assure you of this: Both sides believe he will be the Week 1 starter regardless of the draft.
