Robert Griffin III is hoping that he can potentially extend his career a little longer this season and he is eyeing the Chicago Bears as one team he’d love to join.
During an appearance on the ‘Rich Eisen Show’ Tuesday morning, the former Heisman Trophy winner talked about his future after spending last year as an analyst. RGIII named a few teams with quarterback situations he’d love to help with and the Bears were one of those teams.
RGIII told Eisen that “Going to Chicago with Justin FIelds to try to help as much as I possibly can in that quarterback room would be a great situation.”

At this stage in his career, RGIII doesn’t have a ton to offer on the field but he does have some knowledge he could provide to a team with a young quarterback. And that’s just what the Bears have.
With Nick Foles out of the mix now, Chicago only has Trevor Siemian and Ryan Willis as backup options and ideally, you dont want either of them in the game as it means Fields is either hurt or was benched because he was struggling. So is there room for RGIII?
In addition to Chicago, the former Baylor quarterback listed the Dallas Cowboys or Atlanta Falcons as teams he would be interested in joining potentially.
There’s nothing in the works and this is just RGIII offering up insight on where he would love to go if he did return. But would you be in favor of bringing in a veteran to help Justin Fields? Let us know in the comments!
