Career quarterback Malik Cunningham’s future with the Baltimore Ravens is at wide receiver, as the team made it official during OTAs the past week.

The Ravens had claimed Cunningham, then a rookie, off the New England Patriots’ practice squad in December 2023. The intention was that he would develop into a backup at QB for fellow Louisville product Lamar Jackson, now a two-time NFL Most Valuable Player award winner.

Cunningham, 25, had played six snaps at QB in one game for New England, which had moved the former undrafted free agent between the practice squad and active roster while trying to settle its quarterback situation.

He took four snaps in one game for Baltimore last season and has yet to throw a pass.

Baltimore’s QB room includes Jackson, 38-year-old journeyman Josh Johnson, sixth-round draft pick Devin Leary and undrafted free agent Emory Jones.

The Ravens’ receiving corps includes veterans Zay Flowers, Rashod Bateman and Nelson Agholor as well as fourth-round pick Devontez Walker.

In five seasons at Louisville from 2018-22, Cunningham threw for 9,664 yards and 70 touchdowns and ran for 3,182 yards and 50 touchdowns. He and Jackson share the school record for most rushing scores.
