He says he hopes to play till he's 40, wants to be a starter, still has plenty of time to achieve his goals.

He should be able to find a spot as a backup, hopefully a situation where he could challenge. Probably a good time to move on.

I can't imagine he has too many chances left. He's a backup caliber quarterback who can't stay healthy. If he was able to avoid the injury tent, he'd be a nice guy to have around, but his body type and way he plays makes that virtually impossible.

Wish him the best, hopefully another team is feeling generous and willing to give him another chance.

I hope he does. But that last start he had vs. the Steelers looked brutal. Hopefully it was because of rust and missing key players due to covid.

He's not a starting QB anymore. He's not even a Ryan Fitzpatrick-type backup because Fitzpatrick can still give you a great game.

RG3's knee just killed him. I think someone will grab him as a backup, but I saw all I needed to see this year to know he's never going to be a consistent starter again. Still has a pretty great life.
BYE

He's now a full time SJW and Woke spokes person, too busy for football. We all know how oppressed his life has been, especially by white women.

I would like to see him play again, but I don't think it's even possible for him to play on that old rookie Redski- I mean Washington Football Team level ever again.

If you look at some of the backups across the league there's not much to write home about. I figure if he's content being a back up and can stay healthy he can hang around for a long time.

Maybe he should look at Philly. They seem to have a mess in the QB room.

Houston and that disaster is going to need a starting QB and probably back up.

Jalen Hurts looked pretty promising towards the end of the season, I think he's the solution.

He looked better than I thought he would. It seems like Eagle braintrust is still holding out hope for Carson.

The fecals organization doesn't seem to feel that way, apparently, according to "reports," though you know how reliable that is.

I'm not sure either is the answer.

I'm glad he made it in the league and fulfilled his dreams.

More than anyone, I give him credit for turning our program around.

SicEm RG3!
but I sure as hell know plenty of them and I talk to them a lot, including during the search. And NOTHING was leaked.

I hope either way he's able to keep up with his child support and alimony.

I think he is going to have a hard time finding a role as a starter in the league. He has a stigma about him that many organization find unappealing. People still remember how things went down in Washington. He might be able to get a back up spot on the Texans or Jets.

Assuming he's a cheap priced backup due to his realistic value, I'd be interested to see him under Andy Reid backing up Mahomes.

He is pretty cheap.. I think he has been getting paid like 1-2 mill a year

$2M this year.

Some guys can live like kings as long term NFL backups if their ego is ok with it.

Absolutely.

I can name a number of Baylor QBs that came out just fine holding a clipboard on the sidelines and being scout team QBs.

Get paid $1m to hold a clipboard and throw balls in practice without getting clobbered by 300lbs lineman - beats working at Target.

Jets are probably drafting a QB and benching Darnold, I don't think that they would sign him.

Oliver Luck did it with the Oilers for years. Went to law school and passed the bar while holding the clip board. Life off the field has worked out well for him
Retreat Hell! We just got here! The 2/5

Yah but Chase Daniels went undrafted and has made more than $45 million dollars during a 10+ year career throwing less than 300 passes and is a super bowl champion...would be 2 but he asked to leave the eagles the year they won. He is my hero.

You don't have to be oppressed to advocate for the oppressed (I used oppressed because that's the word you used). There is nothing wrong with those with a voice and a platform to speak on behalf of those who don't have a voice or platform. Why is this seen as a bad thing? Really, why?

Because none of those clowns are oppressed

You either didn't understand my comment and question to you or you chose not to acknowledge what I was saying or address what I was asking. Again, you don't have to be oppressed to speak up and stand up for those who are oppressed (again your choice of word, not mine). If those who have the prosperity, popularity, power, & platform don't do it, who will? The stance that "if you are successful & rich, then you have no right to speak out on the issues like systematic racism, discrimination, and being targeted" is a pretty weak & lazy argument in my opinion. You do know that a lot of these successful people that made it still have in some form experienced those things, have family members, friends, or just want to do something to better this world (it's their choice how they choose to contribute or not). The days of be quiet and dribble, be quiet and pass/catch/run are a thing of the past. Again, why is it a bad thing??

I think this is exactly right. He's been hurt too many times. Not seriously lately but it's always something. Whenever I see him in a game, I'm wondering how many more plays before he gets hurt. Coaches in the league have to be thinking that too. I would not be surprised if he's taken his last NFL snap.

He's got a pretty strong "me" game on Twitter. Maybe that can turn lucrative.

I don't like the Ravens. Didn't like seeing RG3 in their uniform. Maybe he will land as a backup in New Orleans or even Las Vegas.
