Ravens Sign Robert Griffin III to a 1-Year Deal

Baltimore Ravens sign former Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III

The Ravens signed Griffin to a one-year deal Wednesday morning. Ryan Mallett, who backed Flacco up the past two seasons, is a free agent.

He will back up Joe Flacco in Baltimore, where the only other QB on the roster is Josh Woodrum, who has yet to play a snap in the NFL.

However, the quarterback's fortunes declined after that as he struggled with injuries and his last National Football League action came for the Cleveland Browns at the end of the 2016 season. He turned 28 in February.

After throwing 20 touchdowns on 3,200 passing yards along with seven rushing touchdowns in 15 starts as a rookie, injury has plagued Griffin on and off the field. I'm really feeling like we got a steal. He's had a lot of success in this league early on.

But Griffin suffered a knee injury at the end of that season, and it eventually led to his benching in Washington.

Liverpool can beat City in the Champions League says van Dijk
There are two English teams left in the Champions League and they meet each other in the quarter-finals. When we coached at Bayern and Dortmund respectively, that difference was really big", he said .

Griffin is now the third quarterback on the roster. "We felt like we needed a No. 2 quarterback". The two sides came to a contract agreement Tuesday and Griffin is expected to officially sign next week.

A Week 14 game against the Ravens, however, changed Griffin's trajectory.

Griffin came back for the playoffs, but re-injured his knee. In 2015, Griffin fell to third on the Redskins depth chart and remained inactive during the regular season.

Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh is optimistic about the signing; saying the deal was a bargain and that it improved the team.

After sitting out last year, Griffin still made it clear in media interviews that he had a desire to play again, and said he came close to signing with Baltimore last year. "I'm pretty excited about this player". I feel like Ozzie and (assistant general manager) Eric (DeCosta) did a great job here, and I know RGIII, he'll speak to this, but I felt like he really wanted to be here. But at this point, we just want him to stay healthy.
