Ravens sign QB Robert Griffin III to one-year deal

Ravens sign QB Robert Griffin III to one-year deal

"Late yesterday, we agreed to a one-year deal with Robert Griffin", Newsome said.

The Ravens initially brought in Griffin to throw to free-agent receivers during a tryout last week and were impressed with his workout.

The terms were finalized late Tuesday night, and Newsome expects RG3 to sign the contract next week.

Griffin will presumably be a backup quarterback to starter Joe Flacco.

First Person Sentenced In Robert Mueller's Russia Investigation
Prosecutors have alleged that Manafort and Gates used an offshore account to secretly pay $4 million for the report . He had asked the judge for leniency hoping to avoid jail time because his wife is pregnant with their first child.

Griffin, remained un-signed for the entirety of the 2017 season, last played in the National Football League for the Browns during in 2016.

The Baltimore Ravens opened up their pre-draft press conference with some breaking news. That either means Griffin is not a lock to make the team or Baltimore might be interested in keeping three quarterbacks on the roster this season. The following season coming back from injury Griffin's playmaking abilities fell tremendously. I feel like we got a steal. Head coach John Harbaugh had this share about the Ravens' newest teammate. The QB completed 72.5 percent of his passes for 232 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, his best game of that season. Eventually, he lost his starting job and was cut by the franchise. He started just five games before spending time on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. "He really wanted to be a Raven". He returned in 2013, but was benched after throwing 16 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions.

In signing with the Ravens, Griffin is getting another shot at making it as an NFL QB, if only as a backup. "I believe our players are going to love the fact that he's here; they like him as a person".
