The Ravens' big-name backup carousel rolled on Tuesday morning.
The team signed Ryan Mallett to a deal that could be worth up to $2.5 million in 2016, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. The deal includes a $1.5 million base salary and up to $1 million in incentives, per Rapoport. Mallett will join a roster that currently has Jimmy Clausen at the wheel. Matt Schaub and Bryn Renner are also vying for playing time over the final stretch.
The story speculates it seems like a move for the future. Schaub doesn't seem to be the answer behind Joe Flacco and the Ravens likely want to make their own evaluation on Mallett, who went from Texans starter to unemployed after he overslept and missed a team flight.

Week 17 vs. Cincinnati
Ryan Mallett had a surprisingly decent showing against the Steelers last week, as the Ravens stunned their division rivals with a narrow victory. Mallett, in his first start as a Raven, put up 274 yards and a touchdown, and he didn’t turn the ball over, which helped the team squeeze out a victory.
Mallett faces a tough Bengals defense this week that has given up only 17 touchdown passes this year, tied for third in the league. He’s a risky start anyway with how depleted the Raven offense is, and he should remain on waivers in all league formats. He’s basically playing for a shot somewhere next year, or for a role as Joe Flacco’s 2016 backup.
