Robert Griffin III hopes to start anew as a backup QB with Ravens

After winning a Heisman Trophy, being picked second overall in the NFL draft and becoming an instant sensation with the Washington Redskins in 2012, Robert Griffin III is looking ahead to a promising future instead of wistfully gazing at his brilliant past. Griffin agreed to terms on a 1-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens last week, fully aware that his role will be to back up Joe Flacco.

Robert Griffin III, Ravens, reach agreement on 1-year deal

The Baltimore Ravens have reached agreement on a 1-year deal with quarterback Robert Griffin III, whose once-promising NFL career grinded to a halt two years ago. He is expected to serve as the backup to Joe Flacco, Baltimore’s starter for 10 straight seasons. RG3 last played in 2016, with Cleveland

Browns QB Robert Griffin III to practice next week

From Rookie of Year to discarded, RG3’s Redskins saga done

In the end, Robert Griffin III was just another name on a list, one of four players released by the Washington Redskins on Monday to create salary-cap space. The move, expected for some time, brings an end to the quarterback’s sudden-rise-and-stunning-fall saga with a team that traded a bevy of draft picks to acquire him – and now receives nothing in return as he departs. The move gets Griffin’s 2016 contract, worth about $16 million, off the payroll before Wednesday, when the new league year begins and free agents can be signed.

NFL notes: Cancer survivor Eric Berry enjoys home return

Eric Berry has made the drive into Arrowhead Stadium on game day dozens of times over the years. On Friday night, he rolled down the windows and went a little bit slower.

And more than anything, he wanted to hear all those Kansas City Chiefs fans shout words of encouragement when they saw him roll past.

Griffin went 2 for 5 for 8 yards on four possessions for Washington. On his final play, early in the second quarter, he started to scramble but dropped the ball despite no contact. As the quarterback went to the ground to try to corral the loose ball, Lions defensive end Corey Wootton landed on Griffin.
