John Brantley Signs With Baltimore Ravens As Undrafted Free Agent, According To Report

Florida's John Brantley was one of the nation's most coveted recruits in the class of 2007. But his career with the Gators did not feature many highlights, and he was not selected in the 2012 NFL Draft, instead signing a contract as an undrafted free agent with the Baltimore Ravens, according to The Gainesville Sun's Robbie Andreu.

SB Nation's Florida blog, Alligator Army, explains Brantley's star-crossed career:

He came to Florida as a five-star recruit with all the promise in the world, and served as Tim Tebow's understudy, beating out eventual Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton for that role. But injuries and a scheme that he didn't fit hamstringing him as a junior in 2010 and injuries and a team bereft of talent sideswiped his 2011, leaving Brantley with only the 2012 Gator Bowl as his signature win.

Brantley will likely compete for a spot on the Ravens' roster with Tyrod Taylor and Curtis Painter.
