1. Opportunity with Baltimore Ravens
Although he won’t prepare the upcoming season as the Baltimore Ravens starting quarterback, Robert Griffin will be motivated to seize another opportunity to start in the NFL.
Current Ravens starting quarterback Joe Flacco threw six interceptions in the first four games of last season.
The stretch also included an embarrassing 28 yards passing and a 12 QB rating in the Ravens’ Week 3 loss in Loudon to the playoff-bound Jacksonville Jaguars.

However, Flacco recovered and played well enough to get the Ravens into the NFL playoffs until a Week 17 late-game collapse to the Bengals which sent the Ravens packing.
Flacco turned 33-years-old this offseason and will enter his 11th season. The Ravens also haven’t reached the playoffs since the 2014-15 season. Not to mention, his 18 touchdowns was his lowest in 16 games since his rookie season.
Despite reports of the Ravens still “eying” a young NFL quarterback in the upcoming NFL draft 2018, Harbaugh confirmed Griffin will be the Ravens’ No. 2 QB behind Flacco.
Per Cindy Boren of the Washington Post, Harbaugh elaborated on his passion for RG3:
"Confident guy. We felt like we needed a No. 2 quarterback [behind Joe Flacco],” he said. “I feel like we got a steal. I felt like he really wanted to be here, be a Raven.”"
Woodrum, the No. 3 quarterback and the only other player at the position, has yet to take a snap in the NFL. Unless the Ravens draft a quarterback, Griffin is just an opportunity away from being an NFL starting quarterback again.
