Baltimore Ravens agree to 1-year deal with Robert Griffin III

Now he's on his third team in four years after signing with the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced Wednesday.

The Ravens are darn pleased with their new backup to quarterback Joe Flacco, however.

The addition of Griffin doesn't preclude the Ravens from selecting a quarterback in this month's draft.

Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh is optimistic about the signing; saying the deal was a bargain and that it improved the team. The Redskins cut Griffin in 2016, and he signed with the Cleveland Browns, but only played in five games that season.


"I felt like (Griffin) really wanted to be here". Obviously, his personality, he's a confident guy.

A college football star with Baylor, Griffin made a big impact as a rookie with the Washington Redskins in 2012 and was named Offensive Rookie of the Year after a string of dynamic displays.

Seven games into 2014 Cousins took over the job full-time and one year later Griffin was released. Griffin finished his second season with 3,203 passing yards, but tossed 16 touchdowns to 12 interceptions and his quarterback rating went from 102.4 to 82.2. 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 didn't throw a single pass in 2015 and was released by the Redskins after the season. "I felt like he really wanted to be here, be a Raven".

In signing with the Ravens, Griffin is getting another shot at making it as an NFL QB, if only as a backup.
