Browns' Robert Griffin: Bailed out by Josh Gordon
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Griffin completed eight of 14 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown, adding one carry for four yards, in Friday's preseason game against Tampa Bay.

Although the stat line doesn't look too bad, Cleveland's first-team offense had an ugly evening, with Griffin taking five sacks on 19 dropbacks. The only real highlights were a pair of deep completions to Josh Gordon (suspension), with the first going for a 44-yard gain on the opening drive, and the second for a 43-yard touchdown shortly before halftime. The touchdown was thrown directly into coverage, allowing Gordon to come back on the ball and use his massive size advantage over Bucs CB Brent Grimes. While Gordon's strong effort was encouraging for the Cleveland offense, first-round selection Corey Coleman failed to impress, held without a catch on two targets. There isn't a shortage of talent, but the Browns' offense is clearly still a work in progress, with the process made more difficult by a slew of nagging injuries and Gordon's impending four-game suspension.

Browns' Robert Griffin: Looks sharp in second preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Griffin completed six of eight passes for 96 yards and two touchdowns, adding three carries for 36 yards, in Thursday's preseason loss to the Falcons.

Undeterred by the absences of wideouts Josh Gordon (quad/suspension), Corey Coleman (hamstring) and Andrew Hawkins (hamstring), the 26-year-old Griffin connected with Terrelle Pryor for a gorgeous 50-yard touchdown along the right sideline on Cleveland's second drive. The Browns first-team offense did have some problems with penalties and the running game, but Griffin enjoyed a truly impressive evening, later making a perfect throw to TE Gary Barnidge for a 29-yard touchdown. Although he otherwise settled for short gains through the air, Griffin also made a couple big plays with his feet, ripping off runs of 22 and 14 yards. Already named as the starter, Griffin could play into the second half of Cleveland's third preseason game, perhaps even getting a chance to work with Gordon and/or Coleman.

Browns' Robert Griffin: Unimpressive in Browns debut
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Griffin completed four of eight passes for 67 yards with an interception in his Browns debut during Friday's preseason opener at Green Bay.

Griffin got just two series after officially being named Cleveland's starting quarterback Monday. The injury-prone 2012 second overall pick will likely be brought along slowly as he familiarizes himself with the playbook. It's unlikely the former Washington QB rediscovers his electrifying rookie form, but it's tough to extrapolate much from this small sample, especially with projected top two wideouts Corey Coleman (hamstring) and Josh Gordon (quad) both unavailable. He opened his Browns career with a 49-yard pass to Terrelle Pryor, but was also intercepted at the one-yard line by Micah Hyde.

Browns' Robert Griffin: Named starting QB
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Griffin was officially named the starting quarterback for the Browns on Monday.

Head coach Hue Jackson announced the news Monday and had high praise for the fifth-year quarterback, saying, "since he was signed back in March, Robert has made it clear through his actions that he is willing to do everything that has been asked of him to earn this role." Griffin did just that, as he'll look to press the reset button on an injury-riddled start to his career. There are still plenty of question marks surrounding Griffin in the wake of how things played out for him in Washington, notably his ability to stay healthy given the amount of pounding he tends to take thanks to his style of play. Still, the drafting of receiver Corey Coleman and the pending return of star wideout Josh Gordon (suspension/quad) could give Griffin -- who still possesses a strong throwing arm -- the sort of complementary talent needed to help turn his career around.

Browns' Robert Griffin: Leading quarterback competition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin is the clear frontrunner in Cleveland's quarterback competition early on in camp.

It does not appear to be much of a competition at this point as Griffin took all the first-team reps on Friday's first day of training camp. Head coach Hue Jackson indicated Thursday that the team intends on naming a starting quarterback prior to their first preseason game Aug. 12, so barring a setback Griffin appears to be on track to claiming the starting role.
