It is difficult not to get excited about this year's Baltimore Ravens team. After all, on paper, they look about as exciting as they've ever looked with Lamar Jackson at the helm.
Getting Jackson the necessary weapons he needs to fully succeed in a passing offense was a big priority, and Eric DeCosta made that happen. Now, the next step is to get these guys gelling during training camp before Week 1 ultimately kicks off.
But, before then, we'll see some players get booted even earlier than when the final rosters are announced. Which players on this Ravens roster will have a tough time seeing the field before they are finally cut loose?
Josh Johnson, QB
This first one is pretty easy, honestly. The Ravens' quarterback situation is pretty well under control. Obviously, Lamar Jackson is the starter for the next five seasons. There is no question about that. And, behind him once again, is Tyler Huntley as the team's backup.
From there, the team's third string quarterback is last year's undrafted free agent, Anthony Brown, who actually ended up seeing some playing time due to Jackson and Huntley both being injured at one point. If the Ravens keep three quarterbacks (and they should) then it should be Brown who comes back in that spot.
The team signed longtime veteran and journeyman quarterback Josh Johnson earlier this offseason to come in as more of just a camp arm. He is also a great guy to have around the locker room, as well. And, even though Johnson actually received some playing time in the NFC Championship Game last year, he'll probably find himself cut before being able to see the field in any meaningful fashion.
