Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak says the team has evaluated Robert Griffin III as a potential quarterback option, reports ESPN’s Jeff Legwold.

Griffin was released by the Washington Redskins earlier this month. The Broncos are among several teams looking at the signal caller in free agency.

The No. 2 selection in the 2012 draft, Griffin did not play in a game for the Redskins last season after losing his starting job to Kirk Cousins. He had his top season as a rookie, throwing for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions, while also being named to the Pro Bowl.

Griffin played in just 22 games combined the next two seasons, hampered by knee and ankle injuries. In his career, Griffin has completed 64% of his passes with 40 touchdowns, 23 interceptions and a 90.6 passer rating.
