Ravens Backup QB Ryan Mallett Throws 5 INTs in Practice While Filling In For Joe Flacco

Baltimore Ravens v New Orleans Saints

When the Houston Texans signed Ryan Mallett a few years back as the quarterback of the future, it took less than two years for them to realize they had made a grave mistake. Mallett missing a flight was what did it, but his terrible play on the field was the real reason they eventually got rid of him.

A few years later and he’s still the same player.

On Friday, Mallett was filling in for an injured Joe Flacco and hoped to wow his teammates and coaching staff. He threw five interceptions instead.

“Ryan Mallett. The backup quarterback looked awful in filing in for Joe Flacco (back) with the first team on Friday. He was intercepted at least five times and was nearly picked off two more times. On his last interception, Mallett threw his white towel in the air. His struggles were noticed by linebacker Terrell Suggs. “Hey Marty [Mornhinweg, offensive coordinator], tell Mallett to throw to the guys wearing the purple jerseys [the offense],” Suggs said.”

If only there was another available quarterback who played in a Super Bowl in his career before…
