Well, that came completely out of left field. On Wednesday, the Baltimore Ravens announced that they have signed the much-maligned Robert Griffin III to a one-year contract. RGIII’s career seemed to be all but over after having not suited up since the 2016 season. He’ll now likely act as Joe Flacco’s primary backup next season.
It goes without saying that the signing created a ton of interesting reactions on Twitter. Here are some of the best.
My team just went out and signed RGIII's grandfather and Kaepernick still can't get a look https://t.co/oy6EPVl6Q6

It’s quite a morning when RGIII and John Paul Manziel are all over the timeline.

RGIII has spent the past couple of years throwing footballs at stationary trees, so he should fit right in with the Ravens receiving corps
