John Harbaugh: Ravens 'got a steal' landing Robert Griffin III

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

- The Baltimore Ravens have announced they have agreed to a one-year deal with former Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Other than Flacco, the only quarterback on the roster had been Josh Woodrum, who spent all of last season on the practice squad and has never thrown a regular-season pass. Ryan Mallett, the Ravens' backup the past two seasons, is an unrestricted free agent. It's possible Baltimore could still look to draft a developmental quarterback as well.

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

Griffin, remained un-signed for the entirety of the 2017 season, last played in the National Football League for the Browns during in 2016. Griffin took over the Browns' starting QB job in December 2016 after returning from a shoulder injury but struggled to find success, throwing just two touchdown passes over five starts that season. I feel like we got a steal. He led the Redskins back to the playoffs and was named the NFL's Rookie of the Year. Obviously, his personality, he's a confident guy. Griffin did not play last season. "He's a very talented quarterback", he said. He's completed 63.3 percent of his 1,210 attempts for 8,983 yards, 42 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.

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

The Ravens signaled their interest in Griffin last summer when Flacco's back injury was causing concerns but ultimately decided against signing him. Between his regressions and being unable to stay healthy, the Redskins made a decision to move on to quarterback Kirk Cousins who was drafted in the fourth round in the same draft.
