The Marshals has re-signed Offensive Lineman Robert Griffin to their 2017 CIF roster and Wide Receiver Ed Young Jr. to their 2017 CIF roster. Griffin and Young will take two of 35 spots at the Dallas Marshals 2017 training camp in February.
Griffin (OL, 6’ 6” 315, Baylor University) joins the Marshals for his second season as a member of the CIF. Griffin graduated from Euless Trinity High School than attended Navarro College immediately after graduating from high school, before transferring to Baylor in 2010.
When he arrived the more famous Robert Griffin III was already on the roster. Sharing the same name as the quarterback brought Griffin some notoriety before the draft. He was selected by the New York Jets in the sixth round, 203rd overall, in the 2012 NFL Draft. Griffin was released by the Jets than he was signed to the Indianapolis Colts' practice squad.
Young, Jr. (WR, 6’ 1” 210, University of Buffalo) joins the Marshals for his first season as a member of the CIF. Young is a big kid who started his college career as a QB.
