Ryan Griffin looks like Saints' quarterback of the future

In five series, Griffin engineered four scoring drives. He marched the Saints to touchdowns on drives of 61, 80 and 80 yards and produced a field goal on another series. His final numbers were Brees-like: 179 passing yards, one touchdown, zero sacks, zero interceptions. He completed 69.5 of his passes (16 of 23) to nine different receivers. His passer efficiency rating was 109.0.More important, he displayed poise and moxie beyond his years. Griffin operated Sean Payton's quarterback-friendly offense like a savvy veteran. He didn't panic when pressured, avoided bad plays and kept the Saints out of unfavorable down-and-distance scenarios.

How do you do that with today's salary cap and structure?  Isn't really fair to him to not allow him to compete somewhere if he has grown to that point.

He looks like it to me. I hope the Saints can hang on to him until it's his time.

That will not happen.  Brees will be in uniform at least through 2017.  That is three more years.  So the question becomes why would Griffin sign a long term deal with New Orleans when another team could give him a chance.

The issue for Saints ultimately becomes can they showcase Griffin enough to get a draft pick for him.
