OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Baltimore Ravens on Thursday decided to a two-year agreement with Robert Griffin III, who’ll become the top backup to Lamar Jackson and continue being a valuable mentor to this newest franchise quarterback.
Griffin, 2-9, got his NFL career back on course past season with the Ravens after coming outside from the league for a year. He was the most favorite to reunite after impressing team officials and teammates with his own work ethic and attitude.
Run it back turbo!!!
Griffin’s return can have a more prominent role. After spending last season as the team’s No. 3 quarterback, Griffin is anticipated to function as the key backup after Joe Flacco had been exchanged into the Denver Broncos earlier this offseason.
He proved to be effective quarterback coming from the seat in 2018. After Flacco was sidelined with a hip injury for one month, Griffin became the key backup to Jackson and looked in 2 different games.
After Jackson was in concussion protocol in Atlanta, Griffin led a 14-play, 60-yard driveway that resulted in a field target. After Jackson hurt his ankle in at Kansas City, Griffin not quite converted a fourth-and-22 having a pass into Willie Snead, but it dropped faulty after some contact by Chiefs cornerback Kendall Fuller.
Injuries and inconsistent drama contributed to him rebounding from Washington to Cleveland.
He was outside of football in 2017, throwing passes to receivers at UCF to stay sharp. The Ravens attracted him in for a workout this offseason and signed him to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.
Coach John Harbaugh said Griffin played at”a starting-caliber degree” throughout the pre season. The Ravens notion so much of Griffin that they retained three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster for the very first time as 2009.
Jackson and Griffin would be the only quarterbacks currently on the roster, and the Ravens could get their No. 3 somewhere in the draft.
Because of his career, Griffin has completed 63.2 per cent of the moves for 9,004 yards in 45 matches, together with 42 touchdowns and 26 interceptions. He also has rushed for 1,670 yards and still another 10 TDs.
