Ravens Retain Backup Quarterback Ryan Mallett

Posted Mar 9, 2017

Ryan Mallett has been in Marty Mornhinweg’s system for more than a year and filled in admirably for Joe Flacco after he went down with a torn ACL in 2015. Mallett signed a one-year deal.


The Ravens has retained backup quarterback Ryan Mallett on a one-year deal.

Baltimore officially announced the move after free agency opened Thursday afternoon.

The Ravens wanted to keep Mallett, and with an aggressive quarterback market, they quickly pounced.

Mallett, 28, brings steadiness and a known commodity behind starter Joe Flacco. Mallett has been with Offensive Coordinator Marty Mornhinweg for more than a year, so he knows the system well.

The strong-armed 6-foot-6 gunslinger filled in well for two games after Flacco went down with a torn ACL in 2015. Mallett impressively beat the rival Pittsburgh Steelers in his first game as a Raven.

Last season, Mallett saw very limited action (no starts, just six passing attempts), and the Ravens hope it continues that way with Flacco under center. However, if something were to happen to Flacco, Baltimore would know it’s in good hands with Mallett.

The 2011 third-round pick of the New England Patriots has fit in well in Baltimore after a stopover with the Houston Texans. He has eight career starts under his belt.
