Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will be remaining in Washington for the next two seasons, as the Redskins picked up RGIII’s fifth-year contract option earlier today. Griffin has struggled to repeat his amazing rookie season with the Redskins due to various injuries, but it looks like the Skins aren’t done trying with Griffin yet.

If Griffin struggles again this season for Washington, the team can cut him before the 2016 season without his contract being fully guaranteed. If Griffin gets hurt during the 2015 season and the injury carries over to 2016, the team has no choice but to keep him on their roster.
Griffin will be trying to get back on track this year and show the rest of the National Football League that he can be a player worthy of a big time extension.
