Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Ravens) and the Baltimore Ravens mutually hope to have Griffin re-signed soon to back up QB Lamar Jackson.

Footballguys view: With Joe Flacco likely cut or traded, the Ravens are moving forward with Lamar Jackson as their starter. That means they'll be in the market for a backup. Harbaugh said the team will want the quarterbacks to play a similar style to Jackson.

  Ravens | Teams looking at Robert Griffin    Sat Sep 1, 12:04 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Robert Griffin III is drawing trade interest, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Footballguys view: Griffin looked good in the preseason as he tries to get his pro career back on track. With Teddy Bridgewater getting traded to the Saints, other teams in need of a veteran backup could look to Baltimore and the price tag for Griffin. While Bridgewater fetched the Jets a third round pick, Griffin would be a lower cost...perhaps a late round pick for the Ravens.

  Ravens | Robert Griffin doesn't play    Thu Aug 30, 11:06 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Robert Griffin III didn't play in the preseason finale against the Washington Redskins Thursday, Aug. 30, but head coach John Harbaugh said the decision to sit Griffin isn't an indication of future roster decisions.

Footballguys view: Lamar Jackson has shown enough to be a backup even though it might be rough at first if he had to fill in for Joe Flacco. Griffin could catch on elsewhere if the Ravens let him go.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco more motivated    Wed Jun 13, 01:50 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco appears to be more motivated this offseason as a result of the Ravens drafting QB Lamar Jackson and signing QB Robert Griffin III, according to FS Eric Weddle.

Footballguys view: Flacco has to be feeling the pressure after the Ravens added two quarterbacks this offseason, one (Jackson of course) with a first-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft. Under contract through 2020, it seems like Flacco realizes the league is called 'not for long' for a reason. We'll see if Flacco can stay sparked through the 2018 season with so much about his future riding on this season.

  Ravens | RG III splitting backup reps    Fri May 25, 10:24 AM

Baltimore Ravens QBs Robert Griffin III and Lamar Jackson split the second-team repetitions Thursday, May 24.

Footballguys view: Griffin is trying to get his pro career back on track while the rookie Jackson is trying to show that he can develop as the team's QB of the future. Both have similar skill sets, but Jackson is much more athletic.

  Ravens | Robert Griffin could make team    Mon May 7, 03:05 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Robert Griffin III has a chance to make the 53-man roster depending on how QB Lamar Jackson progresses during training camp and the preseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: Jackson has great upside as a quarterback in the NFL. However, his skill set may require some sharpening at the pro level. Griffin has the veteran experience like the guarantee on the box on 'Tommy Boy' and he could easily be the primary backup to Joe Flacco while Jackson develops.

  Ravens | Robert Griffin III signs with Ravens    Wed Apr 4, 11:55 AM

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Browns) agreed to a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday, April 4. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Ravens were interested in Griffin last year. Their quarterback coach James Urban and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg were both on the Eagles staff when Michael Vick had a successful comeback. Griffin should be the backup to Joe Flacco, but is unlikely to see the field unless Flacco gets hurt or bombs this year.

  NFL | Robert Griffin's career not over yet?    Tue Dec 12, 03:00 PM

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Browns) said he worked out for the Los Angeles Chargers last summer, almost played for the Baltimore Ravens and has received 'interesting offers' from other teams.

Footballguys view: So long as Griffin keeps himself in shape, there might be a team that gives him a chance to compete in camp next year. The Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2012, Griffin took the league by storm in his first year. Injuries and problems with head coach Mike Shanahan caused his career to go off track.

  Ravens | Baltimore may work out Robert Griffin    Sun Jul 30, 05:56 PM

The Baltimore Ravens are considering the possibility of working out free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Browns), according to owner Steve Bisciotti.

Footballguys view: Colin Kaepernick was also a possibility, but it appears that fan reaction might have shut down that plan. Griffin hasn't been able to stay healthy in games for years, but he could help the team with practice and preseason reps while Joe Flacco recovers. If he has to start any games in the regular season for the Ravens, they are in trouble.

  Chargers | RG3 has 'positive workout' with Bolts    Tue Jul 25, 09:02 PM

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Browns) reportedly had a positive workout with the Los Angeles Chargers on Tuesday, July 25, although the team opted not to make an immediate move.

Footballguys view: It's a start for Griffin as he's gotten little interest on the open market. All it takes is an injury or two in training camp to change the market for the veteran quarterback. We'll see if he can get a shot with a new team at some point before the start of the regular season.

  Chargers | Robert Griffin to work out for Chargers    Mon Jul 24, 07:15 PM

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Browns) is scheduled to work out for the Los Angeles Chargers Tuesday, July 25, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Griffin has gotten no love on the open market. Released by the Browns in March, Griffin has not been linked to any team. There were rumblings about perhaps being a fit in Seattle, but nothing ever came of that. The Chargers have Kellen Clemens and Eli Jenkins behind Philip Rivers.

  NFL | Robert Griffin III attracting mild interest    Sun Jul 23, 02:25 AM

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Browns) has started to attract 'mild interest' from NFL clubs, four months following his March release from Cleveland.

Footballguys view: As teams start to see their backup quarterback situations up close in camp, that mild interest could heat up. Griffin is definitely good enough to be a #2 for some teams, but his durability has been far from reliable. There's a chance he won't be signed until midseason, but Griffin can still help a team.

  Seahawks | Seattle looking at free-agent quarterbacks    Mon May 15, 02:12 PM

Free-agent QBs Colin Kaepernick (49ers) and Robert Griffin III (Browns) have drawn interest from the Seattle Seahawks as possible backups to QB Russell Wilson.

Footballguys view: It's a smart move for the Seahawks. Last year's backup QB, Trevone Boykin, was arrested twice in 11 days back in late March and early April. Boykin was undraftd out of TCU in 2016, and he's incredibly raw at the position. Getting a player like Kaepernick or Griffin would insure the team has valuable veteran depth behind Wilson.

  NFL | Texans, Browns cycling through QBs    Sun Mar 12, 03:51 PM

The Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns will become the 10th and 11th teams since 2002 to start five different Week 1 starters in as many years following the departures of Brock Osweiler and Robert Griffin III, respectively.

Footballguys view: The Browns are a laughing stock, but at least the Texans were a playoff team in 2016. We should see the Browns make a run at Jimmy Garoppolo (Patriots) either this year via trade or next year via free agency. The Texans are in the Tony Romo (Cowboys) sweepstakes, but they're also likely to draft a rookie QB with a premium pick.

  Browns | Robert Griffin III likely to be cut    Thu Mar 9, 03:48 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III is expected to be released after Cleveland acquired QB Brock Osweiler.

  Browns | Cleveland wants another quarterback    Thu Mar 2, 03:30 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III and company may have more competition in 2017. Head coach Hue Jackson said the Browns will aggressively pursue a quarterback this offseason, but added that they'll be fine if Griffin and QBs Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan comprise the Browns' quarterbacks.

Footballguys view: The Browns know they don't have a surefire answer under center yet. So this is no shock. That said, there are so many problems to fix on this team, a franchise quarterback might not be the highest priority. They need a line to protect him, receivers to throw too and a defense to keep them in the game. All things equally important at this point in the rebuild.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III is expected to take part in the April offseason program, according to director of football operations Sashi Brown. Brown wouldn't commit to the $750,000 bonus Griffin is in line for in March.

Footballguys view: The Browns QB situation is like a rorschach test. It can be a lot of different things. Griffin may take part in the offseason program, but he's no lock for the 53-man roster.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III is scheduled to receive a $750,000 bonus on March 11, but the Browns may consider releasing him before that date if they do not think he is in their plans.

Footballguys view: The Browns want to make a move for Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason. Griffin should not be in their long-term plans. Griffin is scheduled to make $6 million in 2017, which would be too much for a backup quarterback of his caliber.
