Robert Griffin III revives National Football League career with Baltimore Ravens

He was released the following March and did not see the field in 2017.

The Ravens signaled their interest in Griffin last summer when Flacco's back injury was causing concerns but ultimately decided against signing him.

The team says the terms were finalized late Tuesday night, and Newsome expects Griffin, also known as "RG3", to sign the contract next week.

Griffin's appearance on ESPN's First Take hinted at his possible to return to football.

"We're excited about it", Newsome said, via Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.

Joe Flacco is a long-established starter at quarterback for Baltimore but Griffin will be in the mix as their back-up and could get his chance if Flacco falters or picks up an injury. 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.

Griffin, 28, was selected by the Washington Redskins with the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, and starred in the league during his prodigious rookie season before injury setbacks hampered his development. The only game he missed was because of a knee injury suffered in Week 14 against the Ravens. By the end of the 2012 season, he tore knee ligaments in a playoff loss to Seattle. He went on to start 20 more games in Washington before Cousins took the reins. Griffin didn't throw a single pass in 2015 and was released by the Redskins after the season.

'Robert came in, had a really good workout, looked good throwing the ball, and was in very good shape. "Obviously, his personality, he's a confident guy. He's a very talented quarterback who has had a lot of success in this league early on".

"So we're excited about it". "We felt like we needed another No. 2 quarterback". I feel like we got a steal. I know RGIII - he'll speak to this - I felt like he really wanted to be here.
