Robert Griffin III is poised to resume his NFL career about 35 miles away from where he started it.

The former Washington Redskins quarterback has reached agreement on a 1-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens Dan Bailey Jersey , who love the idea of having the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner backing up 10-year starter Joe Flacco.


"Obviously, his personality, he's a confident guy. He's a very talented quarterback," coach John Harbaugh said of Griffin on Wednesday. "He's had a lot of success in this league early on. We're excited about it. We felt like we needed a No. 2 quarterback."


Griffin's last previous stop in an injury-riddled career came in 2016 with the Cleveland Browns. He started five games, winning only one of them.


General manager Ozzie Newsome said Griffin, 28, didn't have far to travel before showing the Ravens he can still fling the ball.


"He still lives in the D.C./Virginia area," Newsome said. "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 took a physical. He did all of that. After that, he went to visit another team. We just were able to come to an agreement."


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


"I feel like we got a steal Jared Goff Jersey ," Harbaugh said. "I felt like (Griffin) really wanted to be here. He really wanted to be a Raven."


Griffin won the Heisman Trophy with Baylor before being selected second overall in the 2012 draft by the Redskins. He enjoyed a sensational rookie season, throwing 20 touchdown passes and only five interceptions, but his career took a decisive downturn after he tore knee ligaments in a playoff loss to Seattle.


RG3 returned in 2013 but was benched after throwing 16 TD passes and 13 interceptions. The following season, a dislocated ankle limited his effectiveness.


Griffin missed the 2015 season after sustaining a concussion during the preseason. After being released by Washington, he signed with the Browns in 2016.


He started the opener, sustained a shoulder injury and was put in injured reserve the following Monday. Griffin returned to play the final four games and was the starting quarterback the last time the Browns won, against San Diego on Dec. 24, 2016.


The Los Angeles Rams have been aggressive in making trades and signing free agents this offseason, which gave them the flexibility to be patient with their first and only draft pick through the first two days of the NFL draft.

By selecting TCU offensive lineman Joe Noteboom on Friday night in the third round with the 89th overall pick, the Rams believe they have the right circumstances to develop their left tackle of the future.


"I think it's a great situation for him Nickell Robey-Coleman Jersey , to be able to come in and learn behind Andrew Whitworth and Rob Havenstein, two tackles we feel great about," Rams coach Sean McVay said.


Said general manager Les Snead: "Joe is a lucky man."


A three-year starter for the Horned Frogs, Noteboom could eventually be the successor to the 36-year-old Whitworth. Whitworth signed a three-year contract last March and immediately helped stabilize the offensive line for the Rams, who went from the worst scoring offense in the NFL to leading the league at 29.9 points per game in McVay's first season as head coach.


The Rams started the same offensive line for 15 of 16 regular-season games and their wild-card round loss to Atlanta, a scenario McVay knows is unlikely to be repeated over multiple seasons. Noteboom, who started his final 40 games at TCU and played left tackle in his final two seasons, will get a chance to start out as the reserve swing tackle.


An honorable mention All-Big-12 selection last season and four-time first-team all-conference academic selection, the Rams believe Noteboom has the versatility and intelligence to fill that role in the near term.


"I can tell you that, from a mental standpoint Telvin Smith Jersey , to be active on game day, number one you're going to have to be able to learn two positions," Snead said. "He can do that, that's no problem for him. From that point forward, it's going out and earning a job on the field."


But the main priority for Noteboom will be to learn from Whitworth, a two-time first-team All-Pro.


McVay credited Whitworth's leadership with helping accelerate the cohesion of the Rams offensive line last season and he believes the veteran can serve the same role in being a mentor to help Noteboom develop.


"I think he was instrumental in really helping our line as a whole last year, and I know he'll do the same taking Joe underneath his arm and kind of guiding him along the way," McVay said.


"That's perfect. I learn from a Pro Bowler, a veteran," Noteboom said on a conference call. "It's fantastic Vincent Rey Jersey , just knowing all the pieces they have added and what a great young team it is and Coach McVay. I think it's the perfect spot."


The Rams were originally set to make their first selection with the 23rd pick in the third round but made a trade with Oakland, picking up a sixth-round pick for moving down two spots from 87th overall.


After not making a selection in the first two rounds, having traded their first-round pick to New England for wide receiver Brandin Cooks earlier this month after they dealt their second-round pick to Buffalo for wide receiver Sammy Watkins in August, the Rams go into Saturday with eight picks.


The Rams have four picks in the fourth round and four more in the sixth round, all acquired either through trades or as compensatory selections.
