He was later signed by Baltimore Ravens on May 29, 2001, reuniting with head coach Brian Billick, who was his offensive coordinator with the Minnesota Vikings. He was originally intended to serve as the third-string quarterback, but he was named the backup behind Elvis Grbac after performing better than Chris Redman. As a starter, he went 2-0.
