Ravens sign QB Robert Griffin III to 1-year deal

Ravens sign QB Robert Griffin III to 1-year deal”

Newsome said Griffin went to work out for a second team after throwing for the Ravens last week. "It makes us a better football team". He started just five games before spending time on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. Griffin did not play last season.

But an ACL injury at the end of his outstanding rookie season derailed a promising career. He was eventually benched for all of 2015 in favor of Kirk Cousins and released by the Redskins in 2016. He was the starting QB of record in the only win in the Hue Jackson era in Cleveland, though RGIII did leave that game - against the Chargers in 2016 - with an injury too.

When the Ravens brought in a couple free-agent wide receivers for workouts last week, Griffin came to the Under Armour Performance Center to throw to them and impressed coaches and scouts. The Ravens were in need of a backup for Joe Flacco.

Griffin, 28, was selected by the Washington Redskins with the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, and starred in the league during his prodigious rookie season before injury setbacks hampered his development. 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. "I'm really feeling like we got a steal".

"I felt like he really wanted to be here, really wanted to be a Raven, felt like this was the place for him", Harbaugh said.

Griffin responded to the signing by tweeting his new team's mantra, #playlikearaven.
