Ravens signed QB Robert Griffin III to a one-year contract.

RGIII spent all of last season out of the league after another injury-marred and disappointing 2016 season with the Browns. In Baltimore, Griffin slides in as the current No. 2 behind Joe Flacco and ahead of presumed No. 3 Josh Woodrum. The Ravens easily could use a high draft pick on another quarterback. Griffin is by no means assured of making the Ravens' final 53.

Speaking on ESPN's SC6, Robert Griffin III said he has not "given up on" finding a team this season.

"I love football. I miss the game," Griffin said. "There are some teams that need help and may need help going into the playoffs." The former No. 2 overall pick added he had offers from the Cardinals and Ravens in the offseason, but he turned them down because they were not the "right fit." It seems unlikely he gets a shot before the end of the season, but it sounds like he will be actively seeking a job in the spring.

The Ravens have elected against trying out free agent QB Robert Griffin III.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley says free agent Colin Kaepernick remains under consideration, but Baltimore will not be bringing in RG3 for a workout. With Joe Flacco (back) on the shelf, the Ravens have been using Ryan Mallett, Dustin Vaughan, and "David Olson" as their three training camp arms.

Owner Steve Bisciotti said Sunday that the Ravens are considering bringing in free agent Robert Griffin III for a tryout.

Griffin recently worked out for the Chargers, but San Diego traded for Cardale Jones instead. It sounds like the Ravens are trying to decide between Griffin and Colin Kaepernick. Bisciotti said Sunday that he "didn't like" Kaepernick's 2016 decision to kneel during the national anthem, and that the Ravens have received a ton of feedback from fans about the issue.

Free agent Robert Griffin III will work out for the Chargers on Tuesday.

It will be RGIII's first known visit and workout since he was released by the Browns on March 10. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Griffin has been working out down in Florida with ex-Colts and Stanford OC Pep Hamilton, who also worked briefly with the Browns. The Bolts have Kellen Clemens currently as their backup.

Speaking in a Monday radio interview, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said free agent Robert Griffin III could be an option behind Russell Wilson.

Carroll said the same of Colin Kaepernick, which is what will get the headlines. Cut by the Browns on March 10, RGIII hasn't been heard from since. There hadn't been so much as a visit or a rumor until Carroll's interview. The odds don't seem particularly high he ends up in Seattle. Griffin turned 27 in February.

Connor Hughes of NJ Advanced Media reports free agent Robert Griffin III is "intrigued by the possibility" of signing with the Jets.

It's remains to be seen if the feeling is mutual. Griffin visited the Jets before signing with Cleveland last offseason, then proceeded to produce another year of injuries and bad tape. RG3 simply doesn't have much left. The Jets could employ a veteran as a short-term fix while grooming a franchise QB, but Jay Cutler and Colin Kaepernick would be more attractive options than Griffin.

Browns released QB Robert Griffin III.

The Browns are making the easy decision of declining RGIII's $750,000 roster bonus, and recouping $6.984 million in cap space. RGIII went full RGIII his first year in Cleveland, getting injured after throwing 26 passes in Week 1 and struggling mightily upon his return in December. Griffin is a formerly-electric talent who just doesn't have it anymore after multiple leg injuries and years of mind games. Sadly, he's running out of NFL options.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns will release Robert Griffin III.

The Browns traded for Brock Osweiler on Thursday, but they aren't expected to keep him. Regardless, Cleveland is heading in a new direction at quarterback and it doesn't look like Griffin III is part of the plan. The Browns could broker a deal with New England for Jimmy Garoppolo or wait until the draft to address their need at quarterback. RG3 struggled through another injury-plagued year in 2016, throwing for just 886 yards and two touchdowns over five appearances. When RG3 resurfaces, it will be as a backup.

The Browns haven't decided if Robert Griffin III will return in 2017.

"We haven't made a decision one way or the other whether he's going to be on our roster,'' EVP Sashi Brown said. Griffin has a $750K roster bonus due March 11, but Cleveland could pay that without committing to him for 2017. The Browns should move on from Griffin if they add a quarterback in the draft/free agency.

Robert Griffin III is due a $750,000 roster bonus on March 11.

While not an exorbitant sum, it does provide a point in time for the Browns to make a decision on RG3 -- release him before March 11 or pay him the $750K bonus. The Akron Beacon Journal confirms "it would be more surprising if Griffin were retained than if he were cut." Griffin likely isn't long for the roster.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said he has not "come to any conclusions" about Robert Griffin III's future in Cleveland

"Everybody else can jump to those conclusions," Jackson continued, "but we're going to keep looking at this thing." The Browns have been open about their need to find a quarterback this offseason, which is as definite a conclusion as you can make about Griffin. Owed a $1.5 million roster bonus in March, it would be very surprising if RG3 is back in Cleveland.

Robert Griffin III completed 29-of-40 passes for 232 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Browns' Week 17 loss to the Steelers.

The touchdown passes were Griffin's first two of the season and ends a personal touchdown drought that dated back to 2014. RGIII made five starts for the Browns this season, opening the year as the starter before injuring his non-throwing shoulder Week 1 against the Eagles and missing the next three months on I.R. RGIII finishes the year completing 87-of-147 passes (59.2 percent) for 886 yards (6.0 YPA) and 2:3 TD:INT. He rushed for 190 yards and two touchdowns. RGIII signed a two-year deal last offseason but comes with a $9.25 million cap hit in 2017. The Browns can save $7.5 million by releasing RGIII. Cleveland figures to aggressively address the quarterback spot.

ESPN Cleveland gives Robert Griffin III a 50 percent chance to return as the 2017 starter.

Griffin has put few positives on tape in four starts this year, but the Browns don’t have anyone better. It’s possible he’ll be back if Cleveland fails to upgrade this offseason. The Browns have been linked to Jimmy Garoppolo trade rumors and are locked into a top-2 pick. Releasing Griffin would clear $6 million in cap space.
