None Ravens' Robert Griffin III makes 'emotional' NFL return

on Sat Aug 04, 2018 3:15 pm
While many focused on Lamar Jackson's debut Thursday night, the Hall of Fame game also represented a significant moment for the Baltimore Ravens' other Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback -- Robert Griffin III.

The Ravens' 17-16 win over the Bears marked Griffin's first NFL game in 19 months. He was out of the league last year and hadn't played in an NFL game since Jan. 1, 2017.

"People don't understand that once you're out of the league for a year, it's really hard to get back in, especially if you're a quarterback and a high draft pick. It's just really hard to do," Griffin said. "[Thursday] was an emotional day for me, just coming back out here. I know it's the preseason, it's the Hall of Fame game, but to have an opportunity to come back out here and play football is something that I really cherish."

With the Ravens not playing Joe Flacco, Griffin made the start and completed 7 of 11 passes for 58 yards and one touchdown. Two of his incompletions were drops, and his interception was the result of the ball going through Breshad Perriman's hands.
