Robert Griffin III is back.
The Ravens on Wednesday announced they have signed the free agent quarterback to a one-year contract to serve as Joe Flacco’s backup.

Bucks: Prunty said Brogdon (left quad) was evaluated Saturday and it was determined he wasn’t ready to go. The Bucks hope last season’s Rookie of the Year can play Monday. … Parker had averaged 20 points in his last three games.

Chicago is the last major league team to hold its home opener. It began the season with a 5-4 road trip to Miami, Cincinnati and Milwaukee.
The Cubs’ new-look bullpen has shined so far. It has a major league-best 0.94 ERA through 38 1/3 innings. Brandon Morrow picked up his first two saves over the weekend since he signed with Chicago in the offseason.
“We’ve got a lot of guys with a lot of good stuff,” Morrow said. “When we’re going to continue to be in the strike zone like we have been, I mean you see the results. Guys are getting quick outs and strikeouts when they need to. Been limiting the free passes for the most part, and just really going in with a lot of confidence.”
Pittsburgh is off to a surprising 7-2 start. It took three of four against Cincinnati in its previous series.
