1. Who will be the Baltimore Ravens backup quarterback?

This one is pretty simple, but it technically involves two players on the roster bubble. One of Tyler Huntley or Josh Johnson will be the Baltimore Ravens backup quarterback. The other will fall off of the bubble. There are cases to be made for both sides.

First, Huntley was the backup last year, and has been the backup. He has proven himself and is much younger than Johnson. On the flip side, moving to Johnson could save them money. Todd Monken, the new offensive coordinator knows Johnson more and likes his stylistic fit for the offense more, and beyond that Huntley is not even healthy.

Do the Ravens keep Huntley, but then place him on the short term IR? They could quickly re-sign Johnson afterwards, and technically both would make it. Or, is Huntley healthy, and holds onto the job? Or, did Johnson win the job this preseason, aided by the injury to Huntley?

Even if both make it, it involves Huntley on the IR, so only one will be active two weeks from now. Which one will it be?
