4. Will the Baltimore Ravens keep Josh Johnson?

The Baltimore Ravens could very easily keep Josh Johnson. He has two paths to the roster, which is why he is high on this list. The first is the third quarterback. Johnson could make the roster as the third quarterback by beating out Anthony Brown. It is pretty possible when you consider the lack of experience that Brown has compared to the quality play of Johnson as a backup over the years.

Speaking of a backup, if the Ravens feel really good, they could bump Johnson up to backup. It would allow them to save some money and move on from Tyler Huntley. Also, it would allow them to keep Anthony Brown, who is more of a project anyway.

Of course, Huntley has been the backup, and while he is not a big game-winner, he holds things down like any backup should be expected to. As we noted, Brown and his role make sense as the number three. So, should the Ravens have Johnson to push both and then have him go on his way? He is not a roster lock.
