There's been a contingent looking to Robert Griffin III as the solution for the LA Rams' QB problem, but RGIII just wrapped up a "good" visit...

The Los Angeles' Rams current depth chart at QB of Case Keenum, Nick Foles and Sean Mannion is a frequent source of concern for many Rams fans. It's why so many mock drafts this offseason have frequently had the Rams grabbing a quarterback with the #15 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, chiefly Memphis QB Paxton Lynch.

But one solution that many Rams fans have gotten behind ahead of the drafts is Washington's former solution: Robert Griffin III.

Today comes news from Mike Garafolo form FOX Sports that Griffin had a "good visit" with the Cleveland Browns:

A good indicator of how big the shift has been among Rams fans clamoring for RGIII?

Going into 53-man roster cuts last September, TST's Brandon Bate asked whether the Rams would be wise to sign RGIII if he didn't make the final wave of cuts (he made the roster, but didn't play a single snap in 2015). The poll in that piece which received more than 1,500 had two-thirds of respondents saying they shouldn't.

Fast forward to this last month, and Bate had a new poll asking which QB would lead the Rams to the most wins in 2016 among Griffin, Keenum, Foles, Mannion, Lynch and fellow 2016 NFL Draft prospects California's Jared Goff and North Dakota St.'s Carson Wentz. In that poll, 45% said RGIII...the most of any option.

RGIII also reportedly recently met with the New York Jets as well after being quoted as "very much" wanting to be a LA Ram.
