Robert Griffin III drives old VW Passat to Browns camp

NFL quarterback doppelgangers

Robert Griffin III was supposed to be the Washington Redskins quarterback for the next decade. Instead, he will open up his fourth season in the NFL as a member of the Cleveland Browns, and he will have the chance to win the starting nod in training camp.

Griffin showed up at camp on Tuesday with a new ride, but it was not the kind of car you would expect a man who just signed for $22 million to drive. He pulled up to camp in a Volkswagen Passat VR6, though the year is not clear. That model of Passat ran from 1992-1994, so the car is at least 22 years old.

The quarterback is going to earn $6.75 million in guaranteed money, so he could at least have sprung for a 2015 Volkswagen. While it is almost a certainty that this is not the only ride in his stable, he seems to be pretty proud of this one in the picture above.

The Browns are hoping that Griffin can resurrect his career in Cleveland, as he has gotten most of the first-team reps early in camp. He is battling Josh McCown for the starting job, and both quarterbacks are most likely very excited to have wide receiver Josh Gordon back from suspension.

In 2015, the Browns started three different quarterbacks throughout the season, as Johnny Manziel, Austin Davis, and McCown all got reps as the team's starter. New head coach Hue Jackson is hoping to name a starter early in camp, and Griffin appears slated to be that guy.

The Browns open their 2016 regular season on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 11.

32. Cleveland Browns

2015 record: 3-13

The Browns added Robert Griffin III into the mix to be the primary shotcaller in the post-Johnny Manziel era, and beginning Week 5, Josh Gordon will presumably be back on the field. It's a new era in Cleveland with former baseball exec Paul DePodesta in charge, but it may be a while until they actually bear the fruits of this rebuild.

31. San Francisco 49ers

2015 record: 5-11

After an unsuccessful run in Philadelphia, Chip Kelly was brought in to help transform the 49ers. Despite efforts to move him, QB Colin Kaepernick could theoretically thrive in Kelly's fast-paced system -- but talent elsewhere is tough to come by.

30. Tennessee Titans

2015 record: 3-13

Tennessee added DeMarco Murray to its backfield and drafted OT Jack Conklin to help both Murray and Marcus Mariota, so there should be some improvements -- but the Titans are still ways away from competing.

29. San Diego Chargers

2015 record: 4-12

The Chargers added Joey Bosa to their defensive corps through the draft, but it will still be hard for them to score -- Melvin Gordon, after a subpar rookie campaign, is recovering from microfracture surgery.

28. Detroit Lions

2015 record: 7-9

Calvin Johnson is no longer in the mix for Matthew Stafford, which means Golden Tate will need to step up big time if they hope to avoid a huge tail-off in the passing game.

27. Miami Dolphins

2015 record: 6-10

Adam Gase will have some shiny new toys on both sides of the ball: Arian Foster and Mario Williams were both brought in via free agency, and Laremy Tunsil was drafted in the first round to beef up the offensive line. But Miami won't be able to take the next step until Ryan Tannehill proves he's a legitimate starting NFL quarterback.

26. New Orleans Saints

2015 record: 7-9

Nick Fairley and Roman Harper have been added to help out a woeful defense, but Drew Brees doesn't have much to work with on his side of the ball.

24. Los Angeles Rams

2015 record: 7-9

A full season of Todd Gurley being the premiere Rams back is intimidating, but banking on first-year quarterback Jared Goff to come out strong right out of the gate may be asking a bit ambitious.

23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

2015 record: 6-10

Second-year QB Jameis Winston looks to be in the best shape of his life, and his connection with WR Mike Evans should only strengthen as they gain experience together. Tampa Bay seems to be building an encouraging team.

18. Jacksonville Jaguars

2015 record: 5-11

The Jags, at times, looked much better than their 5-11 record last year, and could compete for a potential playoff spot this season. With Blake Bortles able to utilize T.J. Yeldon, Denard Robinson, Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson on offense -- and with some infusion of young talent on defense -- Jacksonville should be fun to watch.

15. New York Giants

2015 record: 6-10

If NFL games were 50 minutes long instead of 60, last year's Giants would have had one of the best records in the league -- and Tom Coughlin would likely still be the head coach. Bob McAdoo is in charge now, and Victor Cruz could finally make his return to the field this season, flanking Odell Beckham in his third season. The defensive additions of Janoris Jenkins and Olivier Vernon should make an immediate impact.

14. Dallas Cowboys

2015 record: 4-12

Tony Romo is 36, but a fully healthy season from him could mean the difference between a division title and last year's four-win campaign. Ezekiel Elliott should contribute mightily right away, giving Dallas a great chance in a division that's completely up for grabs.

10. New York Jets

2015 record: 10-6

The Jets finally got their man in Ryan Fitzpatrick, who enjoyed the most success of his career as a Jet last season. With Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker and Matt Forte headlining the offense -- while Sheldon Richardson, Muhammad Wilkerson and Darrelle Revis hold down the other side of the ball -- the Jets could be contenders again after missing out on the playoffs last season despite winning 10 games.

9. Minnesota Vikings

2015 record: 11-5

If it weren't for an embarrassing missed field goal, the Vikings would've made it to the second round of the postseason last year. With most of the squad returning, the defense still sturdy and QB Teddy Bridgewater a year more mature, Minnesota should be in contention for the postseason once again.
