Ryan Mallett completed 3-of-7 passes for 20 yards in the Ravens' Week 8 win over the Dolphins.
Joe Flacco suffered a concussion late in the second quarter, forcing Mallett into the game. You can guess his job from his stat-line. The Ravens wanted Mallett to caretake and stick the ball in his running backs' guts, a game plan he managed to execute. Should Flacco miss Week 9, Mallett would have a delightful matchup in the Titans, but the same could be said for the Titans. Mallett is bad enough that he won't be on the streaming radar for that one if Flacco sits. Oct 27 - 12:09 AM

Ryan Mallett completed 6-of-10 passes for 58 yards in Saturday's preseason game.

Mallett played less than expected in the Ravens' regular season dress rehearsal, as coach John Harbaugh wanted to get No. 3 QB Josh Woodrum some time with the starters. Woodrum struggled mightily, but Mallett was hardly better, and will enter Thursday's preseason finale 28-of-50 (56 percent) for 229 yards (4.58 YPA), one touchdown and two interceptions. He's looked even worse than those abysmal numbers. He simply can't move an NFL offense, and has no feel for the professional game. The Ravens need Joe Flacco's back to hold on for dear life.

Ryan Mallett completed 13-of-22 passes for 113 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Ravens' second preseason game.

Mallett played the entire first half. He was actually worse than his abysmal numbers, showing truly disastrous ball placement as he tried to check the ball down to running backs. He could have thrown at least 1-2 more interceptions. Mallett, who plays with zero feel or creativity, simply doesn't have "it." He's now 22-of-40 (55 percent) for 171 yards (4.28 YPA), one touchdown and two picks this summer. No team can afford to lose its starting quarterback, but the Ravens' season will be over if Joe Flacco does down at any point in 2017. They need an upgrade at their No. 2 spot.
Aug 17 - 10:09 PM

Ryan Mallett completed 9-of-18 passes for 58 yards in the Ravens' preseason opener against the Redskins.

The Ravens better hope Joe Flacco (back) heals up fast and stays that way for the season if they're going to continue down this road with Mallett as the No. 2. Mallett was playing without Jeremy Maclin, Breshad Perriman, and Mike Wallace at his disposal, but it wouldn't have mattered much. Mallett threw hospital balls down the middle of the field and threw between two Ravens pass catchers a couple times where it was unclear who his intended target was. He also badly underthrew a deep ball that the receiver had to stop on the route. Mallett didn't pick up a first down until the Redskins' backups came in the game.
Aug 10 - 9:22 PM

Ravens QB Ryan Mallett was "intercepted at least five times" in Friday's practice, then lost his cool on the field.

Per ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley, Mallett "looked awful" filling in for Joe Flacco (back). Hensley observed two other throws that were nearly picked off, and on his final interception, Mallett "threw his white towel in the air," prompting Terrell Suggs to say, "tell (OC Marty Mornhinweg) to tell Mallett to throw to the guys wearing the purple jerseys (on offense)." The Ravens have been considering signing free agent Colin Kaepernick.

Ravens re-signed QB Ryan Mallett to a one-year, $2 million contract.

Mallett was in danger of falling out of the league after oversleeping/missing a flight got him cut in Houston, but he's found a home in Baltimore. Aside from 2015's ACL tear, Joe Flacco has never missed a game. Turning 29 in June, Mallett's odds of getting on the field this year are slim.
Mar 8 - 10:09 PM

Coach John Harbaugh said the team is in contract negotiations to re-sign free agent Ryan Mallett.

Mallett doesn't stand a chance to land a starting gig elsewhere, so it's probably in his best interests to stick with the Ravens and continue learning the same offense. Mallett has been with Baltimore the past 1.5 seasons.
Mar 1 - 10:09 AM

Ravens coach John Harbaugh suggested Ryan Mallett could lose the backup quarterback job to Josh Johnson.

Harbaugh called the competition "ongoing." Mallett has looked shaky at times this preseason, completing 17-of-23 passes for 138 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. A perennial off-field headache, Mallett will need to really impress over the next couple weeks to stay ahead of journeyman Johnson.

The Baltimore Sun reports Ryan Mallett struggled during offseason workouts.

Mallett got an extended first-team look with Joe Flacco sidelined. Despite the struggles, his backup status isn’t in question. The Ravens expect Flacco to be ready for training camp.

Ryan Mallett completed 30-of-56 passes for 292 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Ravens' 24-16, Week 17 loss to the Bengals.

This one wasn't nearly as close as the score would suggest. The Bengals controlled it from start to finish for the most part before the Ravens scored a late touchdown and attempted an onside kick. Mallett started the final two games of the season for the Ravens after inking a two-year contract on December 15. In his two starts, Mallett completed 58-of-97 passes for 566 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. He appeared in eight games total this season between the Texans and Ravens, making six starts and completing 136-of-244 passes (55.7 percent) for 1,336 yards (5.48 YPA) and a 5:6 TD:INT ratio. Signed for a mere $1.5 million for 2016, Mallett will be back to probably serve as Joe Flacco's clipboard holder.

Ryan Mallett completed 28-of-41 passes for 274 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 16 win over the Steelers.

Mallett opened the game hot, going 5-for-7 for 47 yards and a touchdown on the opening drive. He made a great tight-window throw to Jeremy Butler on the scoring drive and capped off the march with a perfectly placed 8-yard touchdown throw to Chris Matthews. Mallett settled for more short passes with the Ravens nursing a lead in the second half, but he made another fantastic throw to Chris Givens which perfectly split the corner and safety to set up what ended up being the game-clinching touchdown. Mallett was solid in a great matchup this week, but he will face a stiffer test in Cincinnati in the season finale.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley reports Ryan Mallett will start Sunday against the Steelers.

This confirms a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. OC Marc Trestman said Mallett was mentally prepared to start earlier this week, and Baltimore wants to get their backup of the future snaps before next season. Matt Schaub will serve as the No. 2 with Jimmy Clausen a healthy scratch.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Ryan Mallett is expected to start Sunday against the Steelers.

This will serve as Mallett's tryout for 2016. Pittsburgh's secondary is vulnerable but it's unlikely Mallett will be able to take advantage. Baltimore has almost no weapons left after losing Steve Smith, Justin Forsett, Breshad Perriman and Crockett Gillmore to injuries. Pittsburgh's defense is a nice plug-and-play this week.

Ravens OC Marc Trestman believes Ryan Mallett is prepared to start Week 16 against the Steelers

"I think he is [ready]," Trestman said. "The one thing that has been so noticeable this week is how the three of them have worked together to prepare for this game, helping Ryan to get ready to play." The last part of the quote is interesting because it suggests the Ravens are preparing as if Mallett will start. Coach John Harbaugh has refused to name a starter, but he did suggest earlier in the week Mallett would play if he was ready. It is possible we will not know the starter until the team takes the field for their first offensive play Sunday, but at this point, Mallett seems like the favorite.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh suggested Ryan Mallett has a shot to start the final two games of the season.

"We’ll see where it goes this week," Harbaugh said. "Obviously, the clock is ticking. If we want to see him this year, we’re going to have to put him out pretty quick, but that’s a matter of whether he’s ready to play." It sounds like Harbaugh intends to start Mallett in the next two weeks as long as he can pick up the offense. Jimmy Clausen has been competent the last two games, but ESPN's Jamison Hensley said Mallett is the "frontrunner" to back up Joe Flacco in 2016. The apparent desire to get Mallett starts in 2015 supports that claim. No matter if it is Clausen or Mallett, the Ravens offense will continue to be a unit to target for streaming defenses the final two weeks.
