RG3 talks Greg Roman, if he's the right fit for Commanders


Robert Griffin III lent his wisdom about Greg Roman as the Washington Commanders are set to interview the former Ravens offensive coordinator for the same position.

Griffin overlapped with Roman for three seasons in Baltimore, during two of which Roman was the offensive coordinator (2019-20).

"He's probably the best run-game orchestrator I've ever seen in my entire career, so that's the problem," Griffin told The Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan. "It's a blessing and a curse, though. Because in Washington, obviously you've got a plethora of wide receiver options — Scary Terry, Jahan Dotson, Curtis Samuel, you know, the list goes on... Logan Thomas at tight end."

"So, is that the type of offense that you want to bring to Washington, where you're gonna be run-based and it's gonna be two, three tight ends? Because that's what G-Ro does," he said.

"I don't know if that's the best fit," Griffin continued. "It'll be the best wide receiving corps he's ever had as an offensive coach and the most weapons, so maybe that can help him evolve. But the man can put together a game plan to have you run for 250 to 300 yards a game if he has to in the drop of an eye. So he is a phenomenal coach.

"It just depends on what you're looking for. If you're looking for a sophisticated pass game that's gonna go out there and be able to dice people up and draw up options for the weapons the Commanders have, I don't know if G-Ro is the right guy for that. But, he can build you a team that can win, because in this league, the bottom line is the Eagles are the best rushing team in football and they were playing in the Super Bowl. So G-Ro can get you that. It's just a matter of what are you looking for."
