Baltimore Ravens quarterback Ryan Mallett will start Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers in what will be a tryout for the 2016 season, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.
Six-year veteran Jimmy Clausen has started the past two games for Baltimore after he was claimed off waivers from the Bears, throwing for 555 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions.
Mallett, 27, was signed by the Ravens on Dec. 14 a few weeks after starting QB Joe Flacco tore his ACL. He threw for 770 yards and three touchdowns with four interceptions in five games for the Texans before was released.
