Robert Griffin III gets a surprising third chance

From the nation's capital to the rock'n'roll capital of the world, Robert Griffin III will head to Baltimore; the world's crab cake capital.

Robert Griffin III is back in the National Football League after agreeing a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens. GM Ozzie Newsome said that Griffin visited the team to workout last week, and the two sides came to an agreement last night.

Griffin will compete for the backup job behind Flacco, replacing unrestricted free agent Ryan Mallett. The Redskins cut Griffin in 2016, and he signed with the Cleveland Browns, but only played in five games that season. The Ravens kicked the tires on RGIII last offseason but did not sign the QB. He looked hesitant after even the first injury but following the second knee injury, it seemed that Griffin was constantly second-guessing himself. As it turns out, the Ravens were interested in Griffin previous year as well.




He started 15 games with the Washington Redskins, tossing 20 touchdowns to five interceptions.

An ACL injury at the end of that rookie campaign portended the injury struggles to come for RGIII. Griffin didn't throw a single pass in 2015 and was released by the Redskins after the season. "He will probably be here early next week to sign the deal", Newsome said. His last game was as a member of the Cleveland Browns, in the 2016 regular-season finale. Griffin finished his second season with 3,203 passing yards, but tossed 16 touchdowns to 12 interceptions and his quarterback rating went from 102.4 to 82.2. Now he gets a chance at redemption in Baltimore.

The Ravens were in search of adding a No. 2 quarterback to compete with Woodrum.
