Around the North: Ravens sign RGIII

The former Washington Redskins quarterback has reached agreement on a 1-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens, who love the idea of having the 2011 Heisman Trophy victor backing up 10-year starter Joe Flacco.

Released by Cleveland last March, the 2012 No. 2 overall pick never signed with another team and ultimately sat out the 2017 season. The only other besides Joe Flacco was Josh Woodrum.

Griffin's last previous stop in an injury-riddled career came in 2016 with the Cleveland Browns. He turned 28 in February. I feel like we got a steal. "He's a very talented quarterback", he said.

Griffin, a former Redskins star who still lives in the Washington area, went through a full workout for team officials last week when the Ravens were looking at some wide receivers, and the team reached an agreement Monday. 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.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said on Wednesday: "He came in last week, worked out".

A Week 14 game against the Ravens, however, changed Griffin's trajectory. "We felt like we needed another No. 2 quarterback".

But injuries, which began at the end of his rookie season, have since plagued Griffin's career, as a sophomore slump and serious knee issues led to him being benched for all of 2015 in favor of Kirk Cousins.

Griffin signed a two-year deal with the Browns in 2016, and began the year as the starter, but once again was taken down by an injury (shoulder).

The Ravens signing RGIII shouldn't preclude Baltimore from possibly drafting a young signal-caller this year. But at this point, we just want him to stay healthy. He enjoyed a sensational rookie season, throwing 20 touchdown passes and only five interceptions. "I believe our players are going to love the fact that he's here; they like him as a person. We're always working to make our roster as good as it can be".
