New Cleveland Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III, who signed a two-year deal worth $15 million this week, wants to get his mechanics back on track.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Griffin will work in Los Angeles with quarterback expert Tom House. RG3 then will head to Cleveland for the launch of the offseason training program on April 4.

House worked with Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton when Browns head coach Hue Jackson was offensive coordinator of the Bengals.

The 26-year-old Griffin, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins, was released before his fifth-year option hit the books at more than $15 million. Griffin was replaced as the starting quarterback in Washington before the 2015 season began by Kirk Cousins, who was retained in March with the Redskins' franchise tag.

House, a former Major League Baseball pitcher with a Ph.D. in sports/performance psychology, also has worked with Tom Brady of the New England Patriots and Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints.

After leading the Redskins to the playoffs in his rookie season of 2012, Griffin struggled because of injuries and poor play. He has career totals of 8,097 yards, 40 touchdowns and 23 interceptions.
