Robert Griffin III is back in the NFL as of Wednesday.

The Baltimore Ravens signed the free-agent quarterback to a one-year contract. General Manager Ozzie Newsome said the two sides agreed to a deal Tuesday and he expects Griffin to be in the facility to sign the contract next week.

Griffin didn't play in the NFL during the 2017 season. He last suited up during the 2016 campaign where he played five games for the Cleveland Browns.

Baltimore and the 28-year-old nearly signed a contract last year, and, though they didn't come to a deal, the team had kept tabs on Griffin since.

While the former second overall draft pick has started all but two games he's been active for in his career, Griffin is expected to be a backup option behind Joe Flacco.
