Griffin signed a one-year contract with the Ravens on Wednesday.

"Late yesterday, we agreed to a one-year deal with Robert Griffin", Newsome said.

The terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.

The Ravens are darn pleased with their new backup to quarterback Joe Flacco, however.

Released by Cleveland last March, the 2012 No. 2 overall pick never signed with another team and ultimately sat out the 2017 season.

The addition of Griffin doesn't preclude the Ravens from selecting a quarterback in this month's draft. "He's a very talented quarterback who has had a lot of success in this league early on".

The following season Griffin was set back by a dislocated ankle and sustaining a concussion during the 2015 preseason. "I'm really feeling like we got a steal". He put up 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns, and only 5 interceptions during the 2012 regular season. Griffin's last start came January 1, 2017 (Week 17 of 2016 season) in a Browns loss to Steelers. He started just five games before spending time on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. Eventually, he lost his starting job and was cut by the franchise. He returned in 2013, but was benched after throwing 16 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions.

The Ravens signaled their interest in Griffin last summer when Flacco's back injury was causing concerns but ultimately decided against signing him.

"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. "This makes us a better football team".
