CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns have signed free-agent quarterback Robert Griffin III, who hasn’t been the same since his dazzling rookie season in Washington.

Griffin didn’t play a snap in 2015 and was recently released by the Redskins. The Browns met with RG3 last week and will now give him a chance to resurrect his career and win their starting job.

Cleveland has started 24 quarterbacks since 1999 and the team is expected to take a one with the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft. That rookie — possibly California’s Jared Goff or North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz — will compete with Griffin, the second selection in 2012. The Browns attended Wentz’s pro day Thursday.

A dual threat with his arm and legs, Griffin led the Redskins to the NFC East title in his first season before seriously injuring a knee in the playoffs.
