According to Adam Schefter​, a man built to give us NFL news, the Cleveland Browns will ink Robert Griffin III to a contract:

Cleveland is expected to reach agreement with former Redskins' QB Robert Griffin III today, per team source. Griffin III to be a Brown.

Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot immediately backed that up with confirmation:

#Browns have reached agreement with RG3

— Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) March 24, 2016

Afterward Schefter stated that the agreement was for two years:

And now the Browns say they have signed QB Robert Griffin III. It's going to be a 2-year deal.

The financial details of the deal will probably be known later today. And whether or not the team still drafts a quarterback will probably be known later next month.

Since the franchise returned to Ohio in 1999 they've gone through a multitude of ineffective signal callers, including *deep breath*: Ty Detmer, Tim Couch, Doug Pederson, Spergon Wynn, Kelly Holcomb, Jeff Garcia, Luke McCown, Trent Dilfer, Charlie Frye, Derek Anderson, Brady Quinn, Ken Dorsey, Bruce Gradkowski, Colt McCoy, Jake Delhomme, Seneca Wallace, Brandon Weeden, Thad Lewis, Jason Campbell, Brian Hoyer, Connor Shaw, Josh McCown, Austin Davis and Johnny Manziel.

Still, you know what they say, the 25th time's the charm.
