Ravens Sign QB Robert Griffin III

Robert Griffin III is back in the NFL. Griffin is signing with the Baltimore Ravens on a one-year deal, the team announced

Griffin didn't play in the NFL last year after being cut by the Browns in March of 2017. The former #2 overall pick had a great rookie year, but struggled after that following injuries. 

Griffin will compete for a backup QB role behind Joe Flacco in Baltimore. Last year's backup, Ryan Mallett, is an unsigned free agent. The only other QB currently on the roster is Josh Woodrum. 

Griffin was great his first year, completing 65.6 percent of his passes for 3,200 yards, 20 TDs and 5 INTs. He also had 815 rushing yards and 7 TDs. But it all went all quickly after that, with Griffin regressing amid injuries. In 2016 for the Browns, Griffin completed just 59.2 percent of his passes for 886 yards, 2 TDs and 3 INTs in only five games. 

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