Robert Griffin III gets a surprising third chance

Robert Griffin III gets a surprising third chance

Griffin, who was out of football all of previous year, was signed by the Ravens on Wednesday, the team announced. And it should have, considering Griffin has not played since the 2016 season. "He came in last week, worked out, had a real good workout".

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 will back up Joe Flacco in Baltimore, where the only other QB on the roster is Josh Woodrum, who has yet to play a snap in the NFL.

Griffin will compete for the backup job behind Flacco, replacing unrestricted free agent Ryan Mallett. He led the Redskins back to the playoffs and was named the NFL's Rookie of the Year.

But an ACL injury at the end of his outstanding rookie season derailed a promising career. Griffin didn't throw a single pass in 2015 and was released by the Redskins after the season.

Trump Aide Rick Gates Communicated With Former Russian Spy Before Election
Gates worked forPaul Manafort, the indicted former Trump campaign chairman, as a political consultant in Ukraine for a decade. Dowd joined Trump's legal team last summer, and Flynn pleaded guilty in December.

Though taking somewhat of a cautious approach, the Ravens signed Griffin to just a one-year deal.

"Griffin is seemingly happy for the chance as well, tweeting, "#PlayLikeARaven".

The former Heisman Trophy victor is now on his third team in his fifth National Football League season.

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

"You look at the quarterbacks out there and, where we're at right now, I'm pretty excited about this player", Harbaugh said. No word yet on the financial details of Griffin's new contract.
