Ravens Give RGIII Another Shot at the NFL

05 April 2018

Griffin, who was out of football all of past year, was signed by the Ravens on Wednesday, the team announced.

Griffin, 28, sat out the entire 2017 season after being cut by the Cleveland Browns last March. Most have moved on and fully support the Redskins but for those who haven't, does having Griffin back in the "DMV", albeit in a backup role to Joe Flacco, give them a chance to cheer for another team with a somewhat local flavor?

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. The former Baylor star won Offensive Rookie of the Year over Andrew Luck, throwing for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns, five interceptions and a 102.4 QB rating and adding 815 yards and seven running scores on the ground.

It's possible Baltimore could still look to draft a developmental quarterback as well. "He's a very talented quarterback", he said. He was on the practice squad last season and hasn't played in a regular-season game. Newsome also said Griffin's signing would not affect the team's plans to take a quarterback in the upcoming draft. "We felt like we needed a No. 2 quarterback".

Everything looked promising for Griffin until he suffered his first knee injury in the postseason game against the Seattle Seahawks. 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. I really feel that way.

What Patriots' Brandin Cooks trade could mean for the Buffalo Bills
New England , under Belichick , have never been the type of team to give up valuable, cost-controlled assets for star players. Entering the final, fifth-year option of his rookie contract, Cooks was due for a massive extension this offseason or next.

After sitting out last year, Griffin still made it clear in media interviews that he had a desire to play again, and said he came close to signing with Baltimore last year. "He really wanted to be a Raven". "I believe our players are going to love the fact that he's here; they like him as a person".
