Tyler Huntley was expected to compete with Trace McSorley for the backup quarterback job behind Lamar Jackson this offseason.

And if you go back a few months to around May, you would find that most assumed that McSorley was the favorite for the job.

After all, Huntley spent most of his rookie season on the Ravens’ practice squad while McSorley was on the active roster. It was fair to assume that McSorley had the advantage.

But every time Huntely stepped on the field, he made it clear that he was the better option. Even following the spring, Huntley seemed to emerge as an early favorite.

And he never looked back.

The former Utah standout shined in the preseason and likely had the backup job locked down even before McSorley’s injury.

In fact, Huntley played so well that the Ravens felt comfortable carrying just two quarterbacks on the active roster with McSorley relegated to the practice squad.

Would the team have carried two quarterbacks regardless? It’s possible. But Huntley’s play certainly made the decision easier.

It didn’t take long for Tyler Huntley to establish himself as QB2 this summer.
