Robert Griffin: Signing with Baltimore

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens have signed Heisman winning quarterback and former Washington Redskin Robert Griffin III.

'He came in last week, worked out. "He will probably be here early next week to sign the deal".

The terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.

Griffin will presumably be a backup quarterback to starter Joe Flacco. Ryan Mallett, who backed Flacco up the past two seasons, is a free agent. Obviously, his personality, he's a confident guy. He started 15 games as a rookie, threw for 3,200 yards and tossed 20 touchdowns to five interceptions. Griffin did not play last season.

Griffin had one of the most precipitous falls in National Football League history: In 2012 he won the rookie of the year award, led Washington to the playoffs, and was hailed as the NFL's brightest young star. If Griffin can stay healthy and get back some of his playmaking abilities then he could be a good signing as a backup role just in case with little risk. He was benched for the entirety of 2015 in favor of Kirk Cousins and released by Washington in 2016.

Over the course of his four seasons in the NFL, Griffin has appeared in 42 games, 40 of which he started.

Griffin will have to become a better pocket passer if he wants to have any success in the NFL. That either means Griffin is not a lock to make the team or Baltimore might be interested in keeping three quarterbacks on the roster this season.

Griffin responded to the signing by tweeting his new team's mantra, #playlikearaven. "I felt like he really wanted to be here, be a Raven". "And I would talk to my family, and I was OK with that, OK with the fact that it might happen".
