Draft Scout Josh Johnson News
09/02/16 - QB Josh Johnson likely will not make the final roster because the Ravens have traditionally carried just two quarterbacks under coach John Harbaugh. However, Johnson is a legitimate dual-threat and could be an attractive target for a team in need of a quarterback. In the final preseason game against the Saints, Johnson was 18-for-24 for 181 yards. He also ran for 19 yards on seven carries with a touchdown. Ryan Mallett likely will be the primary backup to starter Joe Flacco.
08/22/16 - QB Josh Johnson is third on the depth chart but his ability to make plays might help him overtake Ryan Mallett as the primary backup to Joe Flacco. Johnson, a seven-year veteran, is a prototypical dual threat the Ravens might be able to use in their weekly game plan. Against Indianapolis, Johnson completed 11-of-16 passes for 72 yards and threw a 12-yard touchdown to Jeremy Butler. Johnson also ran for 40 yards on five carries. "Just taking one day at a time and just go out there and (take it) one play at a time and just execute," Johnson said. "No matter what the situation, no matter what the circumstance, I just try and control what I can control and that's the opportunities that I am given and just be a leader out there - lead the young guys."
05/26/16 - QB Josh Johnson was signed as a free agent to provide depth in the offseason workouts and will compete with Ryan Mallett and Jerrod Johnson for a roster spot. Starting quarterback Joe Flacco is still recovering from a knee surgery that prematurely ended his 2015 season. Johnson was a 2008 fifth-round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The eight-year veteran has played for six teams in the past six seasons. Over his career, he has thrown for 1,042 yards, five touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
05/17/16 - QB Josh Johnson, who wasn't tendered as an unrestricted free agent by the Bills May 11, was signed by the Ravens Monday (May 16).
10/13/15 - QB Josh Johnson was signed by the Buffalo Bills with starter Tyrod Taylor battling a sore ankle.
Bills head coach Rex Ryan said Monday that Taylor has been dealing with an ankle injury all season, a day after the quarterback took several hits while rushing for 76 yards in a 14-13 victory over the Tennessee Titans.
"I can tell you this," Ryan said Monday. "Tyrod is beat up right now. You should see him. He is sore, we knew he would be. We haven't really seen Tyrod at 100 percent."
EJ Manuel became Taylor's primary backup after Matt Cassel was traded to the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 22.
Johnson, 29, was signed and released by Indianapolis each of the past two weeks with Colts quarterback Andrew Luck missing two games due to a sore shoulder.
A fifth-round pick by Tampa Bay in 2008, Johnson has started five of 29 career NFL games while also spending time with San Francisco, Cleveland, Cincinnati and the New York Jets. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder has completed 96 of 177 career passes for 1,042 yards, five touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
