1. Dallas Cowboys
Dallas appears to be the most likely destination for Griffin III. After playing his high school and college ball in Texas, a return to the ‘Lone Star State’ would make sense.
Owner Jerry Jones has a propensity to take chances on players many around the league have given up on, and Griffin certainly falls into this category. In addition, the Cowboys’ biggest need this offseason is to find a capable back-up quarterback. The days of Matt Cassel, Brandon Weeden and Kellen Moore are supposed to be long gone, and Griffin could finally provide some stability at the position.
While Griffin tends to excel from the shotgun-formation (whereas Romo spends more time in the I-formation), Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan has proven to be extremely adaptable. The offensive mastermind helped guide Matthew Stafford to his most productive seasons while in Detroit, and should have no trouble molding the offense to Griffin’s strengths.
As ‘America’s Team,’ it’s always important for the Cowboys to have a recognizable name at the quarterback position. With Romo likely to retire within the next 3-4 years, Griffin would be the ideal successor.
