WASHINGTON — One day after trading for Brock Osweiler, the Browns have released quarterback Robert Griffin III.

The Browns pulled off a stunner of a deal Thursday to acquire Osweiler, though after taking on his salary, they are said to be looking at their options, including releasing or trading the former Texans quarterback.

Griffin signed with Cleveland last March shortly after being released by the Redskins. He played five games — starting all five — in a 2016 season shortened by injury, and passed for 886 yards (177.2 per game), two touchdowns and one interception. The Browns were 1-4 in those games.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking. The answer is no, nobody knows if they really would do that.
