Robert Griffin III is likely finished as a member of the Redskins, and a day after his team's playoff loss to the Packers, he didn't speak with reporters after cleaning out his locker.  But he did leave an inspirational message behind for everyone to see.

It's actually a famous poem written by Mother Teresa, but it's appropriate given how the season unfolded. RGIII was inactive for all but one game this season, and he clearly believes he can still play. Exactly where he might get the opportunity to do so in the future, however, remains to be seen.

“I talked to Robert Griffin, again inactive for this game,” Fox’s Chris Myers said Sunday, via The Washington Post. “He said he’s healthy and he’s in limbo. He’s been very supportive throughout the year during Kirk Cousins’s run, in fact even consoling him during this game in some of the tough spots. Griffin said he’s a Redskin as long as they’ll have me. They picked up his option, so by March they’ll have to decide whether they want to trade him, pay him or release him. The ownership and the coaching staff would have to be on the same page, but he’s anxious to play and expects to be playing somewhere, most likely not in Washington.”

A report from's Ian Rapoport confirmed that Griffin's time in Washington will indeed come to a close.

With the #Redskins season over, they'll release RGIII. Just a matter of timing. Was important to owner Dan Snyder he be on the team all year
