Ravens sign RG3 to one-year contract

Ravens sign RG3 to one-year contract

General manager Ozzie Newsome announced the team has agreed to terms with Robert Griffin III on a one-year deal.

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.

The Redskins cut him in 2016, and the Browns signed him to a two-year deal.

Released by Cleveland last March, the 2012 No. 2 overall pick never signed with another team and ultimately sat out the 2017 season.

"I feel like we got a steal, Harbaugh said, per Ravens beat writer, Shawn Stepner". While he had an impressive rookie season, injuries limited his productivity the next few years.

"You look at the veteran quarterbacks out there, where we're at right now, I'm pretty excited about this player", coach John Harbaugh said. "He's a very talented quarterback who has had a lot of success in this league early on". He figures to step in as Joe Flacco insurance, after the franchise quarterback struggled throughout last season with a troublesome back. He's completed 63.3 percent of his 1,210 attempts for 8,983 yards, 42 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.

Griffin started seven games in 2014 before Washington handed the starting job over to Cousins on a full-time basis. Between his regressions and being unable to stay healthy, the Redskins chose to move on to quarterback Kirk Cousins who was drafted in the fourth round in the same draft.

According to reports, the Ravens initially brought Griffin in to throw to receivers, and then invited him back for a meeting before signing him late April 3. "This makes us a better football team".
