Robert Griffin III started the next chapter of his career on Tuesday at a voluntary minicamp session with his new team. This was his first on-field action as the quarterback for the Cleveland Browns.
After being released by the Redskins, Griffin signed a two-year deal with the Browns. According to multiple reporters at the practice, Josh McCown took the majority of the snaps over Griffin. Joshua Gunter of Cleveland.com was able to get this video of Griffin running a play at practice:

Griffin did not impress on his first pass as it was tipped and intercepted. ESPN’s Pat McManamon described it best saying,
Robert Griffin III’s first practice with the Browns was a typical first day of work. Griffin had some good throws in the voluntary minicamp, and some not so good. It was obvious the team is learning a new offense, as it had to re-huddle several times. Griffin and Josh McCown shared reps with the first team.
The Browns were expected to take a quarterback early in the 2016 NFL Draft. But now that the LA Rams have the No. 1 overall pick, the Browns are rumored to be discussing trading their No 2 pick and moving down in the draft.
