Free agent quarterback Robert Griffin III will work out for the Los Angeles Chargers on Tuesday, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Hamilton, who's now an assistant coach at MI, was RG3's quarterbacks coach during Griffin's lone year in Cleveland.

The veteran quarterback has had exactly zero National Football League tryouts since being cut by the Browns on March 10. The trip to Los Angeles will mark Griffin's first free agent visit of the offseason. He had another visit lined up but canceled it.

Griffin started five games for the Cleveland Browns previous year, throwing more interceptions than touchdowns and leading the team to a 1-4 record.

The Browns gave Griffin a chance to revive his career after he was released by the Redskins following the 2015 season. He then latched on with the Browns, who named him their Week 1 starter past year.

He missed the majority of the season due to a shoulder injury.

In a Week 16 start against the Chargers last season, Griffin completed 17 of 25 passes for 164 yards, with zero touchdowns and interceptions, while rushing six times for 42 yards and taking seven sacks. The former Heisman Trophy victor completed a career-low 59.2 percent of his passes for 886 yards and threw two touchdowns to three interceptions. He was back for the start of the 2013 season but incurred a serious ankle injury. However, his play was inconsistent, throwing for 3,203 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
