Ravens Sign Robert Griffin III to a 1-Year Deal

The two sides came to a contract agreement on Tuesday and Griffin is expected to officially sign next week. He will probably be here early next week to sign the deal, ' general manager Ozzie Newsome said.

Griffin would be back-up quarterback to Ravens 10-year league veteran QB Joe Flacco. Their backup last season, Ryan Mallett, is a free agent after signing a one-year deal in March 2017.

The Baltimore Ravens opened up their pre-draft press conference with some breaking news.

When last we saw Griffin on the field, he was one of the most inefficient quarterbacks in the NFL. "I'm really feeling like we got a steal". While he had an impressive rookie season, injuries limited his productivity the next few years. "We felt like we needed a No. 2 QB", Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. He's completed 63.3 percent of his 1,210 attempts for 8,983 yards, 42 touchdowns and 26 interceptions. During that season, he quarterbacked Cleveland to its only victory, a 20-17 win over the San Diego Chargers in the second-to-last week of the season.




Griffin has started 40 games over the last five seasons. Eventually, he lost his starting job and was cut by the franchise.

RG3 returned in 2013 but was benched after throwing 16 TD passes and 13 interceptions.

Even though this signing seems like it came out of left field, Griffin admitted a year ago that he turned down an offer from the Ravens, as well as the Arizona Cardinals, due to the timing not being quite right. "He really wanted to be a Raven". I believe our players are going to love the fact that he's here. "It makes us a better football team".
