Robert Griffin's college coach: Cowboys would be a 'dream' spot for the quarterback

BY foxsports • February 1, 2016

Lots of people seem to believe Robert Griffin would be a good fit for the Dallas Cowboys.

One of those people, Art Briles, Griffin's coach at Baylor, believes it's a dream scenario for his former 2011 Heisman Trophy winner.

From Dallas Morning News:

"You could have a dream. That would probably be making it come true," Briles said from Senior Bowl practices. "That would be a great place for him. It's a great organization; being back in Texas and with the Cowboys and having a chance to get in there under Romo for three years. Not that they need to sell tickets, but it wouldn't hurt ticket sales."

That's a good point. Griffin needs to head to a team where he doesn't have to be the guy, which is exactly what he was expected to be with the Washington Redskins. After all, the Redskins gave up three first-round picks and a second-round pick for Griffin back in the 2012 NFL Draft. 

Griffin was a successful football player in college (and his rookie season) because of his unbelievable athleticism. But injuries hampered that athleticism, and Griffin didn't seem to have that explosive speed (or, at the very least, he was wary of scrambling as often as he had in the past). If a team is very patient with Griffin, he can potentially become an every day quarterback.
