Ravens sign RG3 to one-year contract

The Ravens signed Griffin to a one-year deal Wednesday morning.

In Baltimore, he joins a Ravens quarterback room that already includes starter Joe Flacco and Josh Woodrum.

The Baltimore Ravens have added a veteran quarterback after all. "He will probably be here early next week to sign the deal", Newsome said.

"I felt like (Griffin) really wanted to be here". The former #2 overall pick had a great rookie year, but struggled after that following injuries.

"Very excited about it", explained Head coach John Harbaugh. Obviously, his personality, he's a confident guy. But he suffered a serious knee injury in that playoff game after the 2012 season and was never the same player again.

The funding appeal came a day after several children were among those killed in a strike on the rebel-held port of Hodeida. Jan Egeland, secretary general of the Norwegian Refugee Council, called for a ceasefire and end to the war.

It's been a positive year thus far for Griffin. The QB completed 72.5 percent of his passes for 232 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, his best game of that season.

Over the course of his four seasons in the NFL, Griffin has appeared in 42 games, 40 of which he started. Eventually, he lost his starting job and was cut by the franchise. Between his regressions and being unable to stay healthy, the Redskins chose to move on to quarterback Kirk Cousins who was drafted in the fourth round in the same draft.

"I felt like he really wanted to be here, really wanted to be a Raven, felt like this was the place for him", Harbaugh said.

Even though this signing seems like it came out of left field, Griffin admitted a year ago that he turned down an offer from the Ravens, as well as the Arizona Cardinals, due to the timing not being quite right. "This makes us a better football team".
