Rookie QB Trace McSorley Is Embracing His Jack-Of-All-Trades Role - The Lounge

“Just like Jackson, McSorley has dealt with people suggesting that he would be better off switching from quarterback to another position because of his unique style of play. Just like Jackson, McSorley is adamant that he’s a quarterback. At the same time, the rookie knows Jackson is the starter and he’s No. 3 on the depth chart, so he’s more than willing to do whatever he can to contribute. Because of McSorley’s unique talents (his combination of throwing ability, speed and just general football know-how), he can be of use immediately. “My perspective is that I am a quarterback and that’s what I think I’ll be able to do long-term,” McSorley said on “The Lounge” podcast this week. “But I also want to be able to help this team out as much as I can. It’s exciting to have some opportunities, to be able to get on the field on special teams and make some plays and try and be a difference-maker.”

Kenny Young “trying to be next man up” in Baltimore - ProFootball Talk

“Kenny Young didn’t expect to be in position to challenge for a starting role on the Ravens defense this year. Young expected C.J. Mosley to re-sign with the team and said he was “shocked” when the linebacker wound up leaving for the Jets. The departure opened up a spot alongside Patrick Onwuasor at inside linebacker, however, and, shocked or not, Young is “trying to be the next man up” for Baltimore.”
