He's still here in the D.C. -Virginia area. "We were bringing in some receivers and we asked him if he would come in and throw and go through a full workout for us". He did all of that. He led the team to its first postseason berth since 2007, picking up Pro Bowl honors along the way.

Griffin, 28, was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 draft. He put up 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns, and only 5 interceptions during the 2012 regular season.

Griffin told ESPN in December that he had received offers to play last season from both the Ravens and the Cardinals, but turned them down because he felt it wasn't the right time to attempt a comeback. He was benched for the entirety of 2015 in favor of Kirk Cousins and released by Washington in 2016.

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 was released the following March and did not see the field in 2017. Most have moved on and fully support the Redskins but for those who haven't, does having Griffin back in the "DMV", albeit in a backup role to Joe Flacco, give them a chance to cheer for another team with a somewhat local flavor? "We felt like we needed a No. 2 quarterback". Griffin, 28, provides Baltimore a backup with starting National Football League experience.

Head Coach John Harbaugh told a press conference: 'I'm very excited about it, the coaches are excited about it. "He came in last week, worked out, had a real good workout". He's in very good shape. "Obviously, his personality, he's a confident guy". He's had a lot of success in this league early on.

"We're excited about it".

"We are always working, trying to make our roster as good as can be", Newsome said. I believe our players are going to love the fact that he's here. I feel like we got a steal. He really wanted to be a Raven. But at this point, we just want him to stay healthy.

Griffin posted on Twitter Wednesday with the popular Ravens hashtag, #playlikearaven.
