Griffin's one-year contract with the Ravens has a $1 million non-guaranteed base salary and a $100,000 signing bonus, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The contract details confirm that Griffin will need to compete for a roster spot and backup job, though Joe Flacco and 2017 undrafted free agent Josh Woodrum are the only other quarterbacks currently on the roster. Woodrum was impressive last preseason and spent his entire rookie campaign on the Ravens' practice squad, but he's no match for the No. 2 overall pick from the 2012 draft when it comes to physical talent. After spending last season out of football on the heels of a rough 2016 campaign with Cleveland, the 28-year-old seems ready to accept a reality in which he needs to compete for a backup job. It's one of the more attractive backup gigs in the league, as Flacco hasn't played well since 2014.

Griffin signed a one-year contract with the Ravens on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Released by Cleveland last March, the No. 2 overall pick from the 2012 draft never signed with another team and ultimately sat out the 2017 season. He'll have a good chance to win the backup job in Baltimore, where 2016 undrafted free agent Josh Woodrum is the only other quarterback on the roster behind starter Joe Flacco. Griffin completed 59.2 percent of his passes for 6.0 yards per attempt with the Browns in 2016, throwing two touchdowns and three interceptions on 147 pass attempts in five games, though he did add 190 yards and two scores on the ground. He turned 28 in February.

Griffin is scheduled to work out for the Chargers on Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cut by the Browns in March, Griffin has reportedly been working out with ex-Colts OC and current Michigan assistant head coach Pep Hamilton this offseason. If he were to ultimately sign with the Chargers, Griffin would likely need to beat out incumbent backup Kellen Clemens in order to make the final roster.

The Browns will release Griffin on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Browns are thus in the midst of their latest QB overhaul, after having added Brock Osweiler (for now) and reportedly poised to make a run at trading for New England's Jimmy Garoppolo. Griffin has had trouble staying healthy over the course of his NFL career, but he's just 27 years old and a former No. 2 overall pick, so he'll no doubt be afforded an opportunity to kickstart his career elsewhere. In such a scenario though, we doubt that he'll be simply handed a starting job.

The Browns are expected to part ways with Griffin, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grifin was unable to revive his career in Cleveland, completing just 59.2 percent of his passes for 6.0 yards per attempt in five appearances. The team's decision to take on Brock Osweiler (and his contract) essentially cemented Griffin's exit. Now five years removed from his brilliant rookie season, the 27-year-old would be lucky to find a shot to compete for a starting job. He may have to settle for an outright backup gig .

Griffin finished up the 2016 season by completing 29 of 40 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Steelers. He also rushed five times for 32 yards and was intercepted once.

EDGE Analysis

During his last chance to prove he can be Cleveland's franchise quarterback, Griffin displayed the ability to make plays with his arm rather than his feet. He completed 72 percent of his passes and connected with eight different receivers, including two touchdown tosses to tight ends Gary Barnidge and Seth DeValve. Although he's signed through 2017, his future with the Browns is a bit unclear at this time. He missed the majority of the season with a shoulder injury and never really had the opportunity to show that he's more than just a placeholder. We should know more as the offseason unfolds.

Griffin has been confirmed as the Browns' starting quarterback for Sunday's season finale against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Griffin was cleared from his concussion Thursday morning, paving the way for him to start a fourth straight game to close this season. With the Steelers having already secured a playoff spot, Griffin could benefit from Pittsburgh resting a number of key defensive players, potentially boosting his chances of throwing his first touchdown of the current campaign.

After returning to practice Thursday, Griffin (concussion) is in line to start Sunday against the Steelers, barring any setbacks, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the Akron Beacon Journal, Griffin was medically cleared Thursday morning by an independent neurologist, which sets the stage for Griffin to make his fourth consecutive start. He'll remain a speculative fantasy play in Week 17, but working in his favor is that the Steelers, whose playoff seeding in locked in, are expected to rest or limit a number of their key starters Sunday.

Griffin (concussion) has been cleared to practice and is in line to start Sunday against the Steelers, The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Griffin was cleared by an independent neurologist and it looks like he'll practice Thursday, setting the stage for an opportunity to earn his second straight win. The Browns don't seem to be completely finished with their future evaluation of Griffin, as coach Hue Jackson would like to see a larger sample size from him before making difficult offseason roster decisions. Matchup-wise, the Steelers are allowing the sixth-least fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, but they'll likely be resting some of their starters, as they already have a playoff spot locked up.

Griffin (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Griffin's status for Sunday's game against the Steelers thus remains cloudy and in the event that he is not medically cleared by the end of the week, Cody Kessler would be in line to start at QB in the Browns' season finale.
