The Heisman Trophy victor remained a free agent after the Browns released him in March 2017, but his return to the league was announced by the Ravens on Wednesday. Most have moved on and fully support the Redskins but for those who haven't, does having Griffin back in the "DMV", albeit in a backup role to Joe Flacco, give them a chance to cheer for another team with a somewhat local flavor? After Griffin played worse in 2013, Cousins took over the starting job for the last three games of the season. He turned 28 in February. He won NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year over top pick Andrew Luck by throwing 20 touchdown passes against just five interceptions. I'm really feeling like we got a steal. He's had a lot of success in this league early on. The Ravens kicked the tires on RGIII last offseason but did not sign the QB.
Griffin is now the third quarterback on the roster.
The team says the terms were finalized late Tuesday night, and Newsome expects Griffin, also known as "RG3", to sign the contract next week. "We felt like we needed another No. 2 quarterback". The only game he missed was because of a knee injury suffered in Week 14 against the Ravens. I really feel that way.

Spotify debuts on NYSE, valued at $29.5 billion
Almost 91 percent of Spotify's 178 million shares were tradable, a much higher percentage than typical in a traditional IPO. The stock began trading at $US165.90 a share shortly after noon, resulting in a valuation of roughly $US30 billion.
But injuries, which began at the end of his rookie season, have since plagued Griffin's career, as a sophomore slump and serious knee issues led to him being benched for all of 2015 in favor of Kirk Cousins.
The #Ravens almost signed RGIII previous year and maintained interest throughout. I believe our players are going to love the fact that he's here.
"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. "We're always working to make our roster as good as it can be". But at this point, we just want him to stay healthy.
