Back with Baltimore

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-25

The Ravens signed Johnson on Monday, Cordell Woodland of 105.7 The Fan Baltimore reports.

After being released by Baltimore just a couple days ago, Johnson cleared waivers and is now back with his old team. There's recently been some ambiguity regarding who is the Ravens' top backup between him and Tyler Huntley, an important role given that Lamar Jackson has missed at least one game for four consecutive seasons leading up to 2023.

Let go by Baltimore

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-23

Johnson was released by the Ravens on Saturday.

Given Johnson's status as a veteran in the NFL, the 37-year-old is eligible to re-sign with the Ravens as soon as next week provided he passes through waivers. Faced with a litany of injuries entering Week 3, the Ravens were forced to make the difficult decision to release their backup quarterback. Well-versed backup Tyler Huntley still remains on the team and will operate as the No. 2 behind Lamar Jackson come Sunday. It's possible Johnson could be restored as the top backup on the depth chart in short order if and when he rejoins the roster.

Will serve as backup

Johnson is active and will serve as the No. 2 quarterback behind Lamar Jackson, Jonas Shaffer of reports.

Tyler Huntley will serve as the emergency No. 3 quarterback, meaning he is officially inactive but is dressed and can play if Jackson and Johnson are forced out of the game. Huntley had been battling a hamstring injury, but it's unclear if that played any part in his demotion. Johnson was actually let go by Baltimore ahead of the 53-man roster deadline but was quickly re-signed.

Re-signs with Ravens

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-31

Johnson re-signed with the Ravens on Thursday, Brian Wacker of The Baltimore Sun reports.

With Tyler Huntley's (hamstring) status for Week 1 uncertain, Johnson's addition to the active roster indicates he beat out Anthony Brown for the Ravens' No. 3 quarterback role. Still, the Ravens are unlikely to activate three QBs for their opening game versus the Texans, so Johnson's status will likely depend on Huntley's ability to suit up or not.

Released by Ravens

Baltimore released Johnson on Tuesday.

Johnson had been competing with Anthony Brown for Baltimore's No. 3 quarterback job throughout the preseason, though both were let go Tuesday. That suggests the Ravens won't carry three QBs on their active roster. Johnson could end up on the practice squad as a depth option in case of an injury to Lamar Jackson or Tyler Huntley (hamstring).

Draws Monday start

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-19

Coach John Harbaugh indicated Saturday that Johnson is slated to start and play the first half of Monday's preseason game against the Commanders, Jamison Hensley of reports.

After Johnson get his reps in, Anthony Brown is in line to take over in the second half, which sets the stage for Lamar Jackson and Tyler Huntley (hamstring) to be held out of the contest. Johnson and Brown are competing for the Ravens' No. 3 QB job behind Jackson and Huntley.

Back in Baltimore

Johnson (concussion) agreed to a contract with the Ravens on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Johnson's last NFL appearances came in the form of relief action for Brock Purdy (elbow) during the 49ers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Eagles, a contest in which the veteran was forced out early due to a concussion. Now healthy, Johnson returns to Baltimore, where he also logged stints in 2016 and 2021. He will likely operate as the Ravens' third-string quarterback behind Lamar Jackson and Tyler Huntley.

Won't return to Sunday's game

Johnson (concussion) won't return to Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Eagles.

With Johnson having been ruled out for the rest of the contest, Brock Purdy is back in the game, despite dealing with a right elbow injury. Prior to his exit, Johnson completed seven of his 13 passing attempts for 74 yards and carried two times for two yards while also losing a fumble.
