On Wednesday, the Baltimore Ravens announced they have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Robert Griffin III. We were able to come to an agreement late yesterday. Josh Woodrum is the only other quarterback now on Baltimore's roster.

Griffin, 28, hasn't played since the final game of the 2016 season with the Browns, who released him in March 2017 to clear up cap space for fellow QB bust Brock Osweiler. Obviously, his personality, he's a confident guy.

When the Ravens brought in a couple free-agent wide receivers for workouts last week, Griffin came to the Under Armour Performance Center to throw to them and impressed coaches and scouts. He would struggle to get healthy and develop as a pocket passer, and eventually be supplanted in the starting lineup by Kirk Cousins, who was taken by the Redskins in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

But Griffin was beset by a litany of injuries that included tears to his ACL, LCL and meniscus, an LCL sprain, a dislocated ankle, a concussion and a shoulder fracture.

The change is reflected in the latest microcode revision guidance (PDF ) from Intel, which now lists a new " stopped " status next to a handful of processor families.

Griffin entered the National Football League as a hugely hyped talent in 2012 after winning the Heisman Trophy with Baylor a year previously.

Griffin last played in 2016 but lasted only five games with the Cleveland Browns before injuries set him back. Griffin finished his second season with 3,203 passing yards, but tossed 16 touchdowns to 12 interceptions and his quarterback rating went from 102.4 to 82.2.

After being out of football past year, Griffin was more receptive in coming to Baltimore. "I felt like he really wanted to be a Raven". "And I would talk to my family, and I was OK with that, OK with the fact that it might happen".
