Report: Robert Griffin III on list of replacement quarterbacks for Broncos, could visit soon

The Broncos search for a quarterback begins

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, The Denver Broncos have quarterback Robert Griffin on a list of replacements for Brock Osweiler.

Schefter continues on saying that RG3 could be on his way to Denver once Free Agency opens to take a visit.

Griffen would fit in well with Gary Kubiak's offense. He ran a similar system in Washington when Mike Shanahan was the coach and had a ton of success. So the fit makes sense.

The big question with Griffen is his health. He has had a long list of injuries since joining the league, but after having essentially a year off this past season, he should be pretty healthy.

Also, after a drama-filled stint in Washington, joining a better run organization and just a change of scenery could be the best case scenario for RG3.

His price tag probably won't be very high, and whatever contract he signs will be full of incentives, so it is a low-risk, high reward signing for the Broncos.

Another name that has been mentioned is San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick. In order to acquire Kaepernick, the Broncos would have to agree to a trade for him, and then find a way to fit his contract.

I think one of these guys will be the "Plan B" for John Elway this year. I would not mind seeing the RG3 and a rookie battle it out for the starting job and spending the extra cap space on other areas.

There is never a dull moment with the Denver Broncos.
