The Cleveland Browns announced on Monday that Robert Griffin III has been named the team’s starting quarterback.

In a move that does not come as a big surprise, head coach Hue Jackson praised RG3 for the work he has put in during training camp.

“It’s time. Robert has earned the right to be named the starting quarterback of the Cleveland Browns,” Jackson said. “Since he was signed back in March, Robert has made it clear through his actions that he is willing to do everything that has been asked of him to earn this role. Throughout this process he has gained the respect from his teammates, the coaching staff and the entire organization that is necessary for him to lead our offense and really the entire team.

“I’ve been crystal clear on what we expect from Robert. He fully understands the responsibility and I feel he is ready to handle this role.”
