Well, we can’t say we saw this one coming.
Former Cowboys running back Herschel Walker believes Redskins backup quarterback and fellow former Heisman winner Robert Griffin III can still play, and he believes Dallas might be a good place for him to do so.
Walker let that belief be known this week on a stop on the Heisman Trophy media tour.
“They don’t seem to have him in the game plan at all,” Walker said of Griffin, who has only been active for one game this season, per CBS Sports. “And it’s sad because I think R.G. has got a lot of talent. And what I’d like to see is Mr. Snyder, if you don’t mind, send him to Dallas. I think he’d love to go down to Dallas and play for the Cowboys.”
Walker acknowledged that Kirk Cousins owns the Skins’ starting job after leading a comeback victory against the Buccaneers last week, but then, that only further supports his point.
“Right now, I know he’s not doing anything. So, give him an opportunity to play. It’ll be bad to see him continue to sit there on the bench, but you know you’ve got to give a shout out to Cousins,” he said. “Let me tell you what, the guy’s playing well--can’t deny that. They just won a big game this past week. You got to give him credit. So, if RGIII’s got nothing to do and Mr. Snyder don’t mind, send him down to Dallas a little bit.”
