The Ravens have reportedly tendered restricted free agent quarterback Tyler Huntley.

Per The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec, the Ravens used the right of first refusal tender on their backup quarterback.

The tender is worth $2.627 million, per If another team were to sign Huntley to an offer sheet, the Ravens would have an opportunity to match.

It's similar to the non-exclusive franchise tag for Lamar Jackson, except the Ravens would get nothing in return if they didn't match another offer for Huntley.

Undrafted in 2020, Huntley has been a valuable and capable backup for the Ravens and Jackson, especially the past two seasons.

Huntley started the final five games of last season when Jackson was dealing with an ankle injury, including the Wild-Card playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He also started four games in 2021 when Jackson was hurt.

Huntley threw for 658 yards and two touchdowns, and threw three interceptions, in four regular-season games. He also ran for 137 yards and one touchdown.

Huntley played an inspired playoff game against the Bengals, throwing for 226 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, but his fourth-quarter goal-line fumble that was returned for a 98-yard touchdown was the turning point of the game.

Still, Huntley went to the Pro Bowl Games in February and showed off his skills, finishing second in the precision passing competition and tossing four touchdowns in the flag football games.
