Free agent quarterback Robert Griffin III has reportedly signed a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens. Griffin has not played in the NFL since January 1, 2017 when he was a member the Cleveland Browns.
The 2012 NFL fensive rookie the year was selected second overall by the Washington Redskins in the 2012 NFL Draft and spent his first three seasons with the team before knee injuries derailed his career. He was ultimately benched by the Redskins in 2015 in favor Kirk Cousins.
The Browns signed Griffin to a two-year deal after he was cut by the Redskins in 2016 but he was released after one season, in which he only played in five games due to injuries. The 28-year old QB, who sat out the entire 2017 season, will now compete for a backup spot behind Ravens’ QB Joe Flacco.
