Baltimore Ravens Sign QB Robert Griffin III

In jaw-dropping news this Wednesday, the Baltimore Ravens signed quarterback Robert Griffin III.

With Josh Woodrum the only other signal-caller now under contract besides Flacco, the Ravens were in the market for a backup but this isn't the veteran anyone expected. The Baltimore Ravens announced Wednesday that they've signed the former Heisman Trophy victor. He will probably be here early next week to sign the deal, ' general manager Ozzie Newsome said. Ryan Mallett, who backed Flacco up the past two seasons, is a free agent. "I'm really feeling like we got a steal". He showed great promise as a rookie, winning the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year award and making the Pro Bowl. Head coach John Harbaugh had this share about the Ravens' newest teammate. "He's a very talented quarterback", he said.

It's been a positive year thus far for Griffin. He started 15 games as a rookie, threw for 3,200 yards and tossed 20 touchdowns to five interceptions. 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. Eventually, he lost his starting job and was cut by the franchise.
