The Baltimore Ravens have made an addition to their quarterback room on the heels of their signing Lamar Jackson to the most lucrative deal in NFL history.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Ravens have signed QB Josh Johnson for the upcoming season, which marks the third time they have done so since 2016. Johnson spent the 2016 and 2021 seasons in Baltimore and is back after spending last term with the San Francisco 49ers.
He featured in the NFC Championship game this year, coming on to replace Brock Purdy after the youngster suffered an elbow injury. But he ended up getting injured himself as he would get concussed to leave the Niners in a QB quandary that even saw Christian McCaffery slot in for a snap.
Johnson’s last season with the Ravens was pretty decent given the circumstances. He completed 70 percent of his passes, throwing for 304 yards, two touchdowns, and a single interception.
