NFL roundup: Latest league news from Thursday, May 26

With Lamar Jackson M.I.A. at voluntary OTAs, the Baltimore Ravens are bringing in reinforcements under center.

Baltimore signed veteran backup quarterback Brett Hundley on Thursday.

Hundley, 28, spent much of the 2021 season with the Indianapolis Colts. The journeyman has not started an NFL game since 2017 when he started nine contests in place of Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.
