Robert Griffin III Makes Return To NFL, Signs Contract With Baltimore Ravens

Jonathan Grant | April 4th, 2018

The Baltimore Ravens have come to an agreement with Robert Griffin III for a one-year deal with the team, where he will compete to be the backup quarterback to Joe Flacco.

RGIII, who had one of the best upsides coming into the league, has been plagued by injuries every since his rookie season. Last season, he did not even play with a team and took the year off.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome noted that Griffin “had a real good workout” for the team last week.

Griffin was the second overall pick in 2012 by the Washington Redskins and the offensive rookie of the year in his first season.

His last stint with an NFL team was in 2016, when he played for the Browns. In Cleveland, he completed 59.2 percent of his passes for 886 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions over five starts.

While this is good news for someone who used to be a household name across the country, it’s likely that Griffin will not see much playing time at all as he will be the backup to Flacco who is one of the most consistent quarterbacks in the NFL.
