Friday, the Baltimore Ravens saw a few headlines written in regards to their organization, and one of them reported news on a quarterback.

The first bit of news, early on Friday, came when Odell Beckham Jr. was named in an assault investigation, although it looks like that situation could end up being a money grab now that some of the facts have come out.

The second bit of news, though, was that Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley planned to sign his restricted free agent tender this coming Monday, just before the 2023 NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday.

This means Baltimore now has a legitimate option under center prior to the draft's weekend, taking a little bit of pressure off the team. Although, the Lamar Jackson situation continues to linger and many fans are growing tired.

Tyler Huntley might be the Ravens' starter in 2023, although Baltimore has plenty of options

With Huntley planning to sign his tender, he now becomes the de facto starter for this team. That is, unless Jackson opts to play the 2023 season on the franchise tag or if Baltimore drafts a quarterback high next weekend.

There are also a couple of quarterbacks who might be on the move in coming days, too. Most recently, it was the San Francisco 49ers who made it known they were shopping a young quarterback in former third overall pick Trey Lance.

With the 49ers taking calls on Lance and the New England Patriots having been shopping a fellow 2021 class quarterback, Mac Jones, the Ravens do have other options.

Huntley proved to be a viable backup and spot starter in place of Jackson over the last two seasons, so having him return gives Baltimore a sense of familiarity at the very least. But, the longer this Jackson situation gets strung out, the more antsy Ravens fans will continue to get and, dare I say, angry and frustrated.

For now, it's the 2023 Pro Bowler, Huntley, who gets to see his name above the depth chart. Hopefully, things change for the better. If not, the Ravens could yet again be good enough to compete, but not good enough to move beyond a first round playoff ousting.
