Robert Griffin III hopes to start anew with the Ravens

Baltimore Ravens backup quarterback Robert Griffin III addresses the media Wednesday

"I feel like if I was only planning to play a couple more years, maybe I would look at that as a turning point", Griffin said. The Heisman Trophy victor and No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 National Football League draft is fully aware his role behind starter Joe Flacco. I'm here to compete and get better every single day.

This past year, Griffin remained unsigned, but he said he used that year to watch, learn and heal his body. Griffin's versatile skill set is what helped him achieve tremendous success in the first place and will likely be the catalyst for any employment opportunities beyond the 2018 season. And that sure beats what he went through a year ago.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Griffin said he has also become smarter about avoiding punishing hits as a runner, which has traditionally been a big part of his game but has always been viewed as a major injury risk. It may still turn out that way - he's only 28 years old - but for now Griffin is playing behind a quarterback who's missed six starts over a 10-year career.

"It doesn't mean I'm not going to run". "He's been through a lot of things in his career".

Griffin, 28, said he feels like he's 25, but has learned to better protect himself in the pocket and while scrambling, where he was most unsafe as a Heisman Trophy-winning dual threat at Baylor and in his early years with the Redskins.

When asked if she wanted to legalize weed in a New York Times interview published on Monday, Nixon said "One hundred percent". The governor of NY is proposing to prohibit all employers from asking job applicants about their prior salary history.

Griffin then signed with Cleveland, but his stint as the Browns' starter was cut short by a season-ending shoulder injury, and he sat out the entire 2017 season. He's been to the pinnacle, won the Super Bowl, Super Bowl MVP.

Flacco is coming off one of the worst full seasons of his career.

Griffin was offered a contract by the Ravens last offseason, but he ultimately turned them down and remained out of football. Even after tearing his ACL during his rookie season, Griffin returned to the field just eight months later to be ready for Week 1. "You have to make sure you keep pushing through, keep doing what you know is going to help you get where you want to be".

The Baltimore Ravens' new backup quarterback is looking ahead instead of wistfully gazing at his brilliant past.
