OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — 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.

Griffin is expected to be a backup to Joe Flacco, Baltimore’s starter for 10 straight seasons.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome says Griffin will sign the contract next week after reaching an agreement late Tuesday.

Griffin last played in 2016 with the Cleveland Browns. He started five games, winning only one of them.

Griffin won the Heisman Trophy with Baylor in 2011 before being selected second overall in the 2012 draft by the Washington Redskins. He enjoyed a sensational rookie season, throwing 20 touchdown passes and only five interceptions.

As the injuries mounted, RG3’s effectiveness waned. He missed the 2015 season after sustaining a concussion and was signed by the Browns in 2016.
Griffin was the starting quarterback the last time the Browns won a game.
