Robert Griffin III Looking To Become Ravens Starting Quarterback


Robert Griffin III had an incredibly promising start to his career but mismanagement of his injuries while with the Washington Redskins ultimately led to a decline in his play. After missing the entire 2017 season, Griffin signed on with the Baltimore Ravens and eventually became their third-string quarterback behind Joe Flacco and Lamar Jackson. Now that Flacco has been traded, Jackson has been upgraded as the starter, while Griffin III is the backup. The Ravens even gave RGIII an extension to reward his hard work during the 2018 season.

TMZ Sports caught up with Griffin who explained that he’s not content with just being a backup and that he’ll be gunning for the starting job.

“Anybody that signs in the league is never content being a backup, so this is just part of the rebuilding process for me,” Griffin explained. “It started last year, I moved from QB3 to QB2 … but by no means am I content with where I’m at. I still want to keep going.”

Jackson will be entering his sophomore season with the team although questions still remain as to whether or not he can be an effective passer in the NFL. 

The Ravens finished last season with a record of 10-6 and were eliminated in the Wild-Card round of the NFL Playoffs.
