Because why have tons of often injured players when you can have one more?
The Baltimore Ravens signed Robert Griffin III for some reason on Wednesday, giving him a one-year deal worth about a million bucks with a small signing bonus. He'll replace former backup quarterback Ryan Mallett, who is currently a free agent. Now, plenty of people are up in arms about this, but he's not going to play anyway unless Joe Flacco's head falls off or something equally as tragic, so we can all relax a little.
There are no guarantees that RG3 will make the team - Baltimore can still draft a quarterback, Josh Woodrum can win the job in camp, or RG3's body will just disintegrate. The part of this that bothers me the most is this:
Better at what? Giving the team doctors and trainers more subjects to work on and therefore job stability? That's the only thing I can think of. I am looking forward to inspirational tweets about rising and grinding and not-at-all-staged photos of him and Greta down by the harbor or at the aquarium, however. You know the first place they're gonna visit will be the aquarium.
The moment when Breshad Perriman catches a pass from RG3 in preseason is the moment my life will flash before my eyes and I start speaking in another language or something.
