  • Baltimore Ravens sign former Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III

Now that last year's backup Ryan Mallett is a free agent, Baltimore was in the market for a No. 2 quarterback and the Ravens circled back to Griffin, who was still itching to play again and remained in contact with Baltimore.

Over the course of his four seasons in the NFL, Griffin has appeared in 42 games, 40 of which he started. He turned 28 in February. I feel like we got a steal.

Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh is optimistic about the signing; saying the deal was a bargain and that it improved the team.

Following an offseason workout with the Browns, after which Hue Jackson famously said he felt the earth move under his feet, RGIII signed a two-year deal in Cleveland.

Per White, Ferguson is expected to lose his interim title, which he won by defeating Kevin Lee at UFC 216 in October. At least, it was enough time if his tweet about "staying ready" was in reference to the lightweight title fight.

The following season Griffin was set back by a dislocated ankle and sustaining a concussion during the 2015 preseason.

After winning the Heisman Trophy with Baylor in 2011, Griffin was drafted second overall by Washington in the 2012 National Football League draft. "He's a very talented quarterback", he said. The Baylor product lays claim to a 63.3 percent career completion percentage, 8,983 passing yards, 42 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.

Griffin was released the following year, eventually landing in Cleveland.

Griffin told ESPN in December that he had received offers to play last season from both the Ravens and the Cardinals, but turned them down because he felt it wasn't the right time to attempt a comeback. RG3 signed a one-year contract with the team. I believe our players are going to love the fact that he's here. The Ravens have repeatedly talked about wanting to develop a young passer, and they continued to rave about the depth of this year's quarterback class.
