Jackson will be playing out his fifth-year option in 2022 and was reportedly offered more money than the Arizona Cardinals’ Kyler Murray.
However, the former Louisville standout wanted a fully guaranteed deal to get the talks done.
But if nothing happens during the negotiations, is Huntley a worthy replacement?
If his preseason stats are to be considered, he might be in the running to become a starting quarterback.

So far, the undrafted quarterback from Utah has completed 29 of 32 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns.
He is on a one-year deal with the Ravens worth $895,000 and has done enough to turn heads across the league.
Therefore, is it possible that Huntley is playing his final year with Baltimore?
Remember that he did fairly well last season when he filled in for the injured Jackson.
He started four out of the seven games he played and finished with a 64.9 percent completion percentage for 1,081 yards and three touchdowns.
However, he did not win a game, especially during the tail end of the season when the Ravens ended on a six-game losing streak.
In that case, some experts might argue that the outcome would have been different if Jackson was around.
Teams Will Take Another Look At Huntley
An NFL team could take a chance at him in exchange for a late draft pick.
They would like to see if Huntley is viable to become the starter and they will reap the dividends if he pans out.
There’s also a chance that they let Huntley stay in Baltimore and bid for him once his contract ends.
That’s a plausible option if they don’t want to give anything in return.
