QB Josh John­son signs with Gi­ants, agent says

Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

Two days af­ter he was re­leased by the Ravens as part of their fi­nal ros­ter cuts, quar­ter­back Josh John­son has a found a new home. John­son, who led the Ravens to an un­de­feated pre­sea­son, signed Mon­day with the New York Gi­ants, ac­cord­ing to his agent, Doug Hen­drick­son. John­son hasn’t thrown a pass in an NFL game since 2011. How­ever, he was sharp for the Ravens in ex­ten­sive pre­sea­son ac­tion, com­plet­ing 41-of-57 pass­ing at­tempts for 365 yards and a touch­down, and rush­ing 18 times for 87 yards and two scores. The Ravens opted to keep Ryan Mal­lett as Joe Flacco’s only backup. They’ve kept only two quar­ter­backs on their reg­u­lar-sea­son open­ing ros­ter for seven straight sea­sons.
