On Wednesday, the Baltimore Ravens tendered contracts to a total of six exclusive rights free agents, including Tyler Huntley.
After starting four games for Baltimore toward the end of the 2021 season, the former Utah standout quarterback has now inked a contract to play for the Ravens in the next season.
Last season, when Huntley started games in place of Lamar Jackson, the starting quarterback, he had a record of 1-3.
In addition to his 1,081 passing yards, three touchdown passes, and four interceptions, he ran for an additional 294 yards and scored two touchdowns on the ground.
Huntley became eligible for exclusive rights free agency because his previous contract had ended and he had fewer than three accrued seasons when he joined the league in the year 2020. He had entered the league as an undrafted free agent.
The fact that the Ravens tendered him ensures that Huntley will not be eligible for free agency when the new league year starts the following week.
According to Spotrac, Huntley made $780,000 in the previous year, and as he is an exclusive rights free agent, he will make the league minimum with the contract tender (depending on the number of seasons he has credited, as reported by NFL.com).
According to Spotrac, that will earn Huntley a total of $895,000 for the 2022 campaign.
After the recent news that Aaron Rodgers has agreed to a new four-year deal with the Green Bay Packers and that Russell Wilson has been traded to the Denver Broncos, the name Huntley has been brought up in social media circles as a potential trade possibility.
This comes in the wake of the news that Russell Wilson has been traded to the Denver Broncos.
How Much Does Tyler Huntley Make?
Tyler Huntley makes an average of $895k per year. Huntley will make a base salary of $895,000 in 2022, with a cap hit of $895,000.
