Ravens Sign Former Redskin Robert Griffin III

Ravens Sign Former Redskin Robert Griffin III

From the nation's capital to the rock'n'roll capital of the world, Robert Griffin III will head to Baltimore; the world's crab cake capital.

The addition of Griffin doesn't preclude the Ravens from selecting a quarterback in this month's draft.

Johnny Manziel isn't the only former Heisman Trophy victor attempting to make a comeback in the NFL.

Griffin last suited up for the Cleveland Browns in 2016, when he played in just five games.

Griffin campaigned through much of last season for a job, updating his social accounts frequently with footage of his working out.

Bloomberg reported that Apple is still figuring out how iPhone users can control some tasks by moving a finger near the screen. The curved screens would curve in gradually from top to bottom rather than along the edges like Samsung's screens.

Griffin entered the National Football League as a hugely hyped talent in 2012 after winning the Heisman Trophy with Baylor a year previously. He showed great promise as a rookie, winning the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year award and making the Pro Bowl.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said on Wednesday: "He came in last week, worked out". Here's what he had to say. Had a real good workout and we were able to come to an agreement late yesterday. But Griffin was looking for some guarantees before working out with the team previous year. Earlier in 2018, he got married to former Florida State athlete Grete Sadeiko.

Even though this signing seems like it came out of left field, Griffin admitted past year that he turned down an offer from the Ravens, as well as the Arizona Cardinals, due to the timing not being quite right. Now, they give him another chance on a 1-year deal.

Currently, former undrafted free agent Josh Woodrum is the only quarterback on Baltimore's roster besides starter Joe Flacco.
