The Washington Redskins are reportedly in the market for a new starting quarterback.
But they may have to wait a bit longer than expected to get their man.
The team is expected to make a major move at quarterback this offseason, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, who reported Monday that the team is actively looking for a long-term solution.
Rapoports report cites a source with knowledge of the negotiations, who said that the Redskins will “seek to bring back” Robert Griffin III.
The 49ers, who drafted Griffin in the second round in 2014, could also be in the mix for the job.
The team is reportedly looking for “a quarterback who can throw the ball with accuracy and touch,” Rapopors source said.
The Rams and Chargers could also get serious about Griffin, who is coming off back-to-back NFL MVP seasons, and have been linked to the position before.
Rapaport reports that the Rams have been actively seeking the position, which would be the fourth team to look for a quarterback after the 49ers and Chargers.
The Redskins will have their eyes on the 2018 NFL Draft, which will be held in Los Angeles.
They could also make a move to acquire another quarterback in 2018, according, Rapoports source said, though it’s unclear if that player will be RG3.
