The Baltimore Ravens have signed free agent QB Robert Griffin III. The Ravens and Griffin came to an agreement on a 1-year contract. Griffin is expected to go into next season as starting QB Joe Flacco’s backup.
ESPN (espn) reports, the Ravens initially brought Griffin in to throw to free agent receivers during a tryout last week. The squad were impressed with Griffin. After Griffin took a visit with another team, Baltimore decided to call Griffin up and come to an agreement on a deal, signing Griffin late Tuesday night.
“You look at the veteran QB’s out there, where we’re at right now, I’m pretty excited about this player. I’m really feeling like we got a steal. I really feel that way.” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. Robert Griffin last played in 2016 as a member of the Cleveland Browns. Injuries sidelined Griffin after playing in only 5 games with the Browns.
