Robert Griffin III hopes to start anew as a backup QB with Ravens .
After winning a Heisman Trophy, being picked second overall in the NFL draft and becoming an instant sensation with the Washington Redskins in 2012, Robert Griffin III is looking ahead to a promising future instead of wistfully gazing at his brilliant past. Griffin agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens last week, fully aware his role will be to back up Joe Flacco.
