The Baltimore Ravens waived quarterback Robert Griffin III along with three other players Monday, while also signing 11 players to reserve/future deals.
The backup quarterback leaves having spelled Lamar Jackson for about a dozen games, including two as a starter. His last appearance was cut short by what has marked his entire career: Injury.
As year 8 comes to a close, I just want to say thank you to my teammates, the fans, & @Ravens organization. This season was a trying one with a lot of adversity & there were no better people for the job. Honored to be a part of the brotherhood with yal. The best is yet to come.

Baltimore has reportedly also waived cornerbacks Davontae Harris and Tramon Williams, and wide receiver De’Anthony Thomas.
Griffin, Harris, and Williams were already set to be unrestricted free agents this offseason while Thomas had opted out this season under the NFL’s COVID-19 protocol.
Still only 30, Grffin overall pick might not be done in pro football. Griffin has rallied back before, briefly earning the starting job with the Browns in 2016 after being inactive for the entire 2015 campaign.
He also sat out all of 2017 as a free agent.
