Baltimore Ravens fans have been too familiar with backup quarterback Tyler Huntley over the years. He is 3-6 as a starter if you include the playoffs, which means he has played about half of a season over that two-year span.

While the wins have not come, he has developed a reputation as a quality backup. However, he has just five career touchdowns and seven interceptions. After the fumble in the playoffs last season, he may enter the year on a warmer seat than some fans want to admit.

3. Baltimore Ravens multiple backup quarterback options.

In most years it was assumed that Huntley would win the backup job, at least since Robert Griffin left town. However, this year, there is at least some form of competition. The Ravens signed Josh Johnson, the first sign that something may be up between Huntley and the Ravens. Johnson is a journeyman, meaning he could be in and out before September.

Or, this could mean that they wanted somebody with years of experience who they knew they could trust to step in and win the backup job. At least they know that Johnson should be able to push Huntley. Still, even after Johnson is Anthony Brown. An injury to Huntley had Brown starting last year.

While it did not go well, he was more of a project anyway and may have more physical tools in his arm than Huntley. So, the Ravens have a reason to keep both Johnson and Brown. If they both stay, the odd man out is Huntley. If Huntley stays, it means that he beat out Johnson clean, or it could mean that they gave up on Brown and are keeping Johnson as the third instead. Still, Huntley is certainly not as safe as before.
