The Baltimore Ravens added some veteran leadership to their quarterback room on Monday by signing journeyman signal-caller Josh Johnson. This will be Johnson’s third stint with the franchise.

Johnson previously spent time with the Ravens in 2016 and 2021. He was the team’s starter in Week 16 of the 2021 NFL season, throwing for 304 yards and two touchdowns in a 21-41 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Johnson split the 2022 season between the Denver Broncos and the San Francisco 49ers. The 37-year-old player didn’t see any playing time in Denver and only had two pass attempts for the 49ers during the regular part of the campaign.

The veteran was pushed into a prominent role during the playoffs for the 49ers, replacing injured starter Brock Purdy in NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He completed seven passes for 74 yards before being forced to exit the game himself due to a concussion.

Josh Johnson initially entered the league as a fifth-round selection by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008. He spent four years in Tampa and went on to suit up for 13 more franchises, including the Cleveland Browns, Indianapolis Colts, and Houston Texans. He currently holds the record as the player with the most teams in NFL history.

Gunner's favorite movies are Pulp Fiction, Iron Man (just the first one), and every James Bond film ever made. He's learning TV and cinema and hoping to always enjoy movies as he does now.
