It's better for him and everyone else if he moves on to another team - preferably one that will use the Pistol offense - though he's got to agree to play it - which he seemed to refuse to after his rookie year. Trade him for a 7th round pick - just get him off the team.
Agree with the sentiment, but who's gonna trade for him?
Earlier this year I really wanted them to decline the option and then trade him during the draft. There wasn't much after Winston/Mariota in this year's class, so a healthy RG3 without his 2016 option picked up should have garnered at least a mid-round pick IMO.
Now? Nobody's going to risk RG3 getting injured (especially with the beating he's already taking in preseason) and then having $16M in dead cap weight next year. If anybody does think he can be rehabilitated, I'm guessing they'd rather wait for him to fail, get benched, get cut, and then pick him up for peanuts in the offseason.

As ironic as that would be, I just can't see it happening. Forget the lack of an NFL skillset, he doesn't even strike me as the type of cat that would go nuts just to prove people wrong. He's too passive-aggressive. He'd rather make sarcastic "I just work here" comments in press conferences and imply blame on others.
Nah, he's gonna stink it up (again), Kirk is gonna play well (again), and ESPN 980 is gonna be PURE GOLD next week!
