- The Baltimore Ravens have announced they have agreed to a one-year deal with former Redskins quarterback 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 of the deal have not yet been disclosed.


In Baltimore, he joins a Ravens quarterback room that already includes starter Joe Flacco and Josh Woodrum. After the Browns released him after one year in 2016, he was out of football for the entire 2017 season. The Baltimore Ravens announced Wednesday that they've signed the former Heisman Trophy victor. He's had a lot of success in this league early on.

Despite a celebrated rookie season with the Redskins, the latter of his career with the Redskins was plagued by poor performance and injuries. But Griffin was looking for some guarantees before working out with the team previous year. "This moves makes us better".


Over the course of his four seasons in the NFL, Griffin has appeared in 42 games, 40 of which he started. He started 15 games as a rookie, threw for 3,200 yards and tossed 20 touchdowns to five interceptions. Eventually, he lost his starting job and was cut by the franchise. RG3 last played for the Cleveland Browns in 2016.

RG3 returned in 2013 but was benched after throwing 16 TD passes and 13 interceptions. I know RGIII - he'll speak to this - I felt like he really wanted to be here.


As it turns out, the Ravens were interested in Griffin previous year as well. I believe our players are going to love the fact that he's here.
