Griffin, who was out of football all of past year, was signed by the Ravens on Wednesday, the team announced. Robert came in and had a really good workout - looked good throwing the ball.

"He came in last week, worked out - had a real good work out - and we were able to come to an agreement late yesterday".

Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh is optimistic about the signing; saying the deal was a bargain and that it improved the team.

The terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.

Currently, former undrafted free agent Josh Woodrum is the only quarterback on Baltimore's roster besides starter Joe Flacco.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III was selected by the Washington Redskins at second overall in the 2012 draft expecting to be the long-term solution. I'm really feeling like we got a steal. He started five games, winning only one of them. "We felt like we needed another No. 2 quarterback. He really wanted to be a Raven". "Obviously, his personality, he's a confident guy".

Griffin came back for the playoffs but injured his knee again, and then had a poor 2013 season which saw Cousins take over during the last three games. "He's a very talented quarterback", he said. RGIII won Offensive Rookie of the Year over Andrew Luck, tossing for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns, five interceptions and a 102.4 QB rating while adding 120 rushing attempts, 815 yards and seven running scores. "I'm pretty excited about this player". I believe our players are going to love the fact that he's here.

"It just wasn't the right fit and I had to make that decision for myself to say, 'Look, if I don't accept this offer, there's a chance I won't play football this year, '" Griffin said.
