Why Ravens Will Sign Quarterback Robert Griffin III

Injuries and issues with Redskins coaches, however, derailed his time in Washington, leading to his single-season stint in Cleveland, where he signed ahead of the 2016 campaign. He put up 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns, and only 5 interceptions during the 2012 regular season.

Griffin also has daughter Reese Ann, aged two, whom he shares with his first wife, college sweetheart Rebecca Liddicoat.

Griffin was the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2012 and led the Redskins to the playoffs but he injured his knee in a postseason loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Griffin suffered a gnarly knee sprain from a hit by then-Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata.


However, the quarterback's fortunes declined after that as he struggled with injuries and his last National Football League action came for the Cleveland Browns at the end of the 2016 season.

Griffin is now the third quarterback on the roster.

Griffin started seven games in 2014 before Washington handed the starting job over to Cousins on a full-time basis. He will probably be here early next week to sign the deal, ' general manager Ozzie Newsome said. The QB completed 72.5 percent of his passes for 232 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, his best game of that season. He struggled to regain his form and was eventually benched for good in favor of Kirk Cousins in 2015 and cut in 2016. "I believe our players are going to love the fact that he's here; they like him as a person. I felt like he really wanted to be here, be a Raven".
