Ravens sign Robert Griffin III to one-year deal

Baltimore Ravens sign former Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III

GM Ozzie Newsome said that Griffin visited the team to workout last week, and the two sides came to an agreement last night.

The terms were finalized late Tuesday night, and Newsome expects RG3 to sign the contract next week. After the Browns released him after one year in 2016, he was out of football for the entire 2017 season.

"You look at the quarterbacks out there and, where we're at right now, I'm pretty excited about this player", Harbaugh said. He's had a lot of success in this league early on. "I really feel that way". Griffin's last start came January 1, 2017 (Week 17 of 2016 season) in a Browns loss to Steelers.




It's been a positive year thus far for Griffin. "We're always working to make our roster as good as it can be". He figures to step in as Joe Flacco insurance, after the franchise quarterback struggled throughout last season with a troublesome back. He showed great promise as a rookie, winning the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year award and making the Pro Bowl. He enjoyed a sensational rookie season, throwing 20 touchdown passes and only five interceptions, but his career took a decisive downturn after he tore knee ligaments in a playoff loss to Seattle. Griffin started five games for the Browns in 2016, completing 59.2 percent of his passes with two touchdowns and three interceptions before being released.

According to reports, the Ravens initially brought Griffin in to throw to receivers, and then invited him back for a meeting before signing him late April 3. "He really wanted to be a Raven".
