Robert Griffin III agrees to 1-year deal with Baltimore Ravens

According to Ian Rapoport, the Baltimore Ravens have made a decision to sign Griffin to a one year deal as a backup role.

With Josh Woodrum the only other signal-caller now under contract besides Flacco, the Ravens were in the market for a backup but this isn't the veteran anyone expected.

We have agreed to a one-year deal with QB Robert Griffin.

Girffin hasn't played since the 20016 season.

It also is a big deal because one of the league's best young talents from a few seasons ago is back in football after a year hiatus. But he suffered a serious knee injury in that playoff game after the 2012 season and was never the same player again. Griffin took over the Browns' starting QB job in December 2016 after returning from a shoulder injury but struggled to find success, throwing just two touchdown passes over five starts that season.

Despite being out of the game for over a year, the Ravens must have liked what they saw after claiming RGIII "had a real good workout".

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

"Very excited about it", explained Head coach John Harbaugh.

The terms were finalized late Tuesday night, and Newsome expects RG3 to sign the contract next week. Last year's backup, Ryan Mallett, is an unsigned free agent.

"I feel like we got a steal, Harbaugh said, per Ravens beat writer, Shawn Stepner".

It's been a positive year thus far for Griffin.

Griffin is now the third quarterback on the roster. "I felt like he really wanted to be a Raven".
