RG3: I thought I was headed to Cleveland

Berea (WOIO) - Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who is in town for the NFL's Rookie Symposium, said he thought he was going to be a Cleveland Brown come draft day.

"Once I declared for the draft, Cleveland was a place I thought I would be just because they had the most firepower when it came to draft picks and trade-ability," Griffin said. "It didn't turn out that way and I have no idea why it didn't."

Instead, the Redskins made a trade with the St. Louis Rams in March for the 2nd overall pick in the draft to take the quarterback from Baylor.

Griffin also said there was no truth to some reports he didn't want to play for the Browns.  He did say he is a fan of Brandon Weeden, the quarterback the Browns selected in the first round.

"He's got a great arm and he seems like a great leader. Everyone wants to question his age, but as long as you are playing well right now it doesn't matter what your age. The media and the news is always worried about what's going on right now not five years down the road."
