Word on Monday morning was that the Redskins were likely to pick up the 2016 option on quarterback Robert Griffin IIIís option and it moved to a done deal in the middle of the day.

Redskins General Manager Scot McCloughan announced that the team is exercising their option on Griffinís pick ahead of the May 3 deadline to do so. The move puts Griffin in position to earn just over $16 million in 2016, which the Redskins can rescind if Griffin is healthy but the option is guaranteed against injury.

Thatís not a small concern for a player who has dealt with serious injuries in his three-year NFL career, although Griffin insisted this month that the option question wasnít a big concern for him. Instead, Griffin said that heís focused on improving his performance after two rough seasons.

ďItís not about talking about it; Itís about being about it,Ē Griffin said. ďThatís what my goal is this entire offseason. You got to talk small, play big, take care of the little things for the big things and everything will fall into place.Ē

Given the price they paid to acquire Griffin and their willingness to exercise the option, the team surely hopes that everything does fall into place. Despite that, McCloughan said Monday that the decision doesnít change the teamís draft strategy and that theyíd still pick a quarterback with the fifth pick if thatís the best
available player.

So that puts them out of the Mariota sweepstakes. Next up is the Jets. Will the Jets be willing to give up on Geno Smith after only halfway through his rookie contract? After that is the Bears. The Bears are not fond of Cutler, but still have to pay him big money either way. So they may be stuck with him. The Falcons, Giants, and Vikings will stay pat at QB, which brings us to the Browns. How bad do they want Bradford?

Hopefully, bad enough. Also, I don't see MM dropping past 2, much less making it to 12.
