Ravens sign QB Robert Griffin III to one-year deal

The Baltimore Ravens announced Wednesday afternoon that they've signed Robert Griffin III.

Newsome said Griffin went to work out for a second team after throwing for the Ravens last week.

The Ravens initially brought in Griffin to throw to free-agent receivers during a tryout last week and were impressed with his workout. And we were able to come to an agreement late yesterday.

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

The terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.

Griffin, 28, sat out the entire 2017 season after being cut by the Cleveland Browns last March. The Ravens have repeatedly talked about wanting to develop a young passer, and they continued to rave about the depth of this year's quarterback class. Obviously, his personality, he's a confident guy.

Michigan Ends Loyola-Chicago's Cinderella Run; Reaches National Championship Game
The second half, we ran a little more in terms of set plays just because we were in front of our bench so it's easy to call. But facing one of the best defensive teams in the country, the Ramblers scored just 16 points over the final 14 minutes.

Griffin last played in the National Football League for the Cleveland Brown in 2016. Flacco got better and started Week 1 (and all 16 games), so the Ravens didn't end up needing Griffin.

The Ravens' backup situation has been far from stellar in recent years.

Griffin was released the following year, eventually landing in Cleveland.

Griffin, who the Ravens were interested in signing previous year, at least gives them someone with some upside, a quarterback with a track record of success who is still young-ish (Griffin turned 28 in February).

The #Ravens almost signed RGIII past year and maintained interest throughout. I know RGIII - he'll speak to this - I felt like he really wanted to be here. "And I would talk to my family, and I was OK with that, OK with the fact that it might happen".
