Griffin, who was out of football all of a year ago, was signed by the Ravens on Wednesday, the team announced.

Griffin, 28, hasn't played since the final game of the 2016 season with the Browns, who released him in March 2017 to clear up cap space for fellow QB bust Brock Osweiler.

Joe Flacco is a long-established starter at quarterback for Baltimore but Griffin will be in the mix as their back-up and could get his chance if Flacco falters or picks up an injury.

The rapper's debut single, "Bodak Yellow", spent three weeks in the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. Not only will she be talking to guests, she also plans to perform her hit single, "Bartier Cardi".

He spent 2016 with the Browns, only playing in five games because injuries struck again. I'm really feeling like we got a steal.

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 draft, Griffin passed for 3,200 yards and rushed for 815 yards in 15 games his rookie year, finishing with a combined 27 touchdowns as he led Washington to the playoffs. Griffin returned to play the final four games and was the starting quarterback the last time the Browns won, against San Diego on December 24, 2016.

Griffin is now the third quarterback on the roster.

Everything looked promising for Griffin until he suffered his first knee injury in the postseason game against the Seattle Seahawks. In 2015, Griffin fell to third on the Redskins depth chart and remained inactive during the regular season. "He will probably be here early next week to sign the deal", Newsome said.

The Ravens were in search of adding a No. 2 quarterback to compete with Woodrum.

United Nations Urges Israel To 'Reconsider' Cancelled Migrant Deal
By late Monday evening, Netanyahu wrote on Facebook that he was suspending implementation of the agreement for the time being. But in the hours that followed the announcement he faced growing calls on social and mainstream media to abolish the deal.

The Ravens signing RGIII shouldn't preclude Baltimore from possibly drafting a young signal-caller this year. I know RGIII - he'll speak to this - I felt like he really wanted to be here. [He] just felt like this was the place for him. He quickly emerged as a top National Football League talent, throwing for 3,200 yards and 20 touchdowns along with 815 rushing yards and seven running TDs in his Rookie of the Year season. "We're always working to make our roster as good as it can be". I believe our players are going to love the fact that he's here.
