Former first-round pick Robert Griffin III has found a new home in Baltimore, signing a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced on Wednesday.

But this move shouldn't come as that much of a shock.

A college football star with Baylor, Griffin made a big impact as a rookie with the Washington Redskins in 2012 and was named Offensive Rookie of the Year after a string of dynamic displays.

"You look at the veteran quarterbacks out there, where we're at right now, I'm pretty excited about this player", coach John Harbaugh said.

Who's left? Matt Cassel, Mark Sanchez, Austin Davis and Derek Anderson are among those unsigned.

The ride ended abruptly, however, with Griffin suffering an ACL injury in a home playoff loss to the Seahawks (and Wilson).

Rescue operations are underway in the area and police personnel are attempting to pull out those feared trapped under the rubbles. The incident happened almost a month after a two-storey building was collapsed in Madhya Pradesh's Shajapur district.

Baltimore had expressed interest in Griffin last summer, when Flacco was sidelined during training camp with a herniated disc.

All of a sudden, the addition of Griffin, 28, isn't so off the wall when looking at the current quarterback landscape.

The #Ravens almost signed RGIII previous year and maintained interest throughout. He has some semblance of a track record, particularly early in his career.

With limited cap space, the Ravens have been in the market for an low-cost veteran passer. The only other QB now on the roster is Josh Woodrum.

He was a massively hyped quarterback in the 2012 draft.

Griffin will likely be the second quarterback on the depth chart for the Ravens; behind Joe Flacco and ahead of third-year quarterback, Josh Woodrum. Now he gets a chance at redemption in Baltimore. The Ravens haven't drafted a quarterback the past three years. If the Ravens can gain some of his confidence back maybe he can become a solid backup quarterback in the league. This is why Baltimore needed to sign someone like Griffin.
