Robert Griffin: Signing with Baltimore

Robert Griffin III Reportedly Signing WIth NFL Team Baltimore Ravens sign former Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III
| 05 April, 2018, 01:51

Ryan Mallett, who threw five interceptions during one training-camp practice past year, has yet to draw any interest in free agency. Seeing as the Ravens former backup to starting quarterback Joe Flacco in Ryan Mallett has hit free agency, there was a spot to fill in case Flacco were to go down in 2017.

However, the quarterback's fortunes declined after that as he struggled with injuries and his last National Football League action came for the Cleveland Browns at the end of the 2016 season. He turned 28 in February. "I'm really feeling like we got a steal". He will probably be here early next week to sign the deal, ' general manager Ozzie Newsome said.

Griffin, who the Ravens were interested in signing a year ago, 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 former Heisman Trophy victor was regarded as one of the league's most electrifying prospects when Washington selected him with the second overall pick of the 2012 draft.


"Very excited about it", explained Head coach John Harbaugh. The Baylor product lays claim to a 63.3 percent career completion percentage, 8,983 passing yards, 42 touchdowns and 26 interceptions. He was eventually benched for all of 2015 in favor of Kirk Cousins and released by the Redskins in 2016.

Griffin responded to the signing by tweeting his new team's mantra, #playlikearaven. "I felt like he really wanted to be a Raven".

But Griffin was beset by a litany of injuries that included tears to his ACL, LCL and meniscus, an LCL sprain, a dislocated ankle, a concussion and a shoulder fracture.
