Robert Griffin III and a dream deferred

By Jamar Hudson / @jamarhudson “What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?

Could Robert Griffin III be the NFL’s next Steve Young?

Robert Griffin III has a chance to become the league’s next Steve Young. Though the two quarterbacks came into the league in completely different ways—Griffin as a highly touted No. 2 overall pick and Young as a supplemental selection following a stint in the USFL—the long-term trajectory of their careers could look eerily similar when it’s all said and done.
