Robert Griffin III recently signed with the Cleveland Browns. In the NFL, there are impressive teams, and then there are the Browns, making this signing somewhat surprising. Although RGIII has seen better days (mostly due to injuries over the past two seasons), his signing with Cleveland still caught many NFL pundits and fans off guard.
Only time will tell if RGIII returns to elite form with the Browns. We all know that the team could use a rejuvenation just as much as RGIII can, and it will all come down to whether he can remain injury-free to help make the Browns competitive for the first time in years.
This is just one of many surprising NFL signings over the years. The NFL always seems to keep us on our toes with interesting matchups between star players and dud teams or just plain head-scratcher signings.
