Ravens Give RGIII Another Shot at the NFL

Baltimore Ravens sign former Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III Ravens Sign Former Redskin Robert Griffin III

Former first-round pick Robert Griffin III has found a new home in Baltimore, signing a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced on Wednesday.

Now that last year's backup Ryan Mallett is a free agent, Baltimore was in the market for a No. 2 quarterback and the Ravens circled back to Griffin, who was still itching to play again and remained in contact with Baltimore.

The quarterback, 28, will serve as a veteran back-up to starter Joe Flacco following a whole year out of the sport after he was released by the Cleveland Browns in March.

The Redskins cut him in 2016, and the Browns signed him to a two-year deal.

Griffin is now the third quarterback on the roster. He's had a lot of success in this league early on. The Baltimore Ravens announced Wednesday that they've signed the former Heisman Trophy victor. Very little risk involved, and if RG3 somehow returns to the form that won him the Heisman Trophy and landed him atop the 2012 NFL Draft and earned him the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year award, that's a bonus.

"We're excited about it". Between his regressions and being unable to stay healthy, the Redskins made a decision to move on to quarterback Kirk Cousins who was drafted in the fourth round in the same draft. He returned in 2013, but was benched after throwing 16 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions.

When last we saw Griffin on the field, he was one of the most inefficient quarterbacks in the NFL. I know RGIII - he'll speak to this - I felt like he really wanted to be here.

Griffin missed the 2015 season after sustaining a concussion during the preseason. "And I would talk to my family, and I was OK with that, OK with the fact that it might happen". "This makes us a better football team".
