The Ravens were looking for an inexpensive option behind Joe Flacco, and they got that in Robert Griffin III.

Griffin signed a one-year deal worth only $1 million, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports, and the contract includes only a small signing bonus.

“We’re excited about it,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said, via Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun. “We felt like we needed a No. 2 quarterback. I’m really feeling like we got a steal. I felt like he really wanted to be a Raven.”

Griffin, 28, has 40 career starts, going 15-25 with Washington and Cleveland.
