” Undoubtedly, his character, he’s a positive man. He’s a very skilled quarterback,” coach John Harbaugh stated of Griffin on Wednesday. “He’s had a lot of success in this league early on. We’re delighted about it. We seemed like we required a No. 2 quarterback.”

Griffin’s last previous drop in an injury-riddled profession came in 2016 with the Cleveland Browns. He began five games, winning only one of them.

I seem like we got a steal. … He actually wished to be a Raven.

General supervisor Ozzie Newsome stated Griffin, 28, didn’t have far to travel before revealing the Ravens he can still fling the ball.

” He still lives in the D.C./ Virginia location,” Newsome said. “We were bringing in some receivers and we asked him if he would come in and toss and go through a complete workout for us. We just were able to come to a contract.”

The terms were finalized late Tuesday night, and Newsome expects RG3 to sign the agreement next week.

” I feel like we got a steal,” Harbaugh said. He truly desired to be a Raven.”
