The Facts: Five years after arriving on the scene as one of the most dynamic rookies in NFL history, Griffin is facing a non-existent market for his services. Although Griffin still boasts the requisite NFL athleticism and arm strength, he has yet to prove he can succeed outside of the diverse option offense designed by former Redskins OC Kyle Shanahan a half-decade ago. Appearing on The Rich Eisen Show last week, the new 49ers head coach outlined the factors working against Griffin at this stage of an injury-prone career. "You've got to make sure you tailor an offense that fits his skill set," Shanahan said of Griffin. "I look into all of that and I think one thing that's tough when a guy's not your for-sure starter, you need to put in a certain offense to give this guy a chance to be successful."
Diehards Line:Where might Griffin ultimately find work? Operating an offense with read-option elements to suit Russell Wilson's playing style, the Seahawks have entertained the notion of signing Colin Kaepernick or Griffin as veteran insurance. If Kaepernick is viewed as the more attractive option, though, it's fair to wonder if Griffin will still be searching for his ideal fit by the time the season opens in September.
