It seemed pretty inevitably after an impressive preseason debut, but Trace McSorley is officially an NFL football player. With teams required to get down to their final 53 man rosters, McSorley has officially made the Balitmore Ravens accoriding to multiple reports.
After a shaky debut in his first NFL action, McSorley quickly found a rhythm. With presumed backup Robert Griffin III sidelined, he was able to take advantage of the additional time to make a statement to John Harbaugh and the Ravens staff.
McSorley threw his first career professional touchdown pass in week two of the preseason against Green Bay, finding Chris Moore for the score. It was more of the same in week three against Philadelphia. the rookie signal caller tossed a pair of touchdown passes, and added one more on the ground. In his final chance to impress the Baltimore staff, McSorley dropped a dime to Jaleel Brown for his fourth passing touchdown of the preseason.
All told, McSorley finishes the preseason 51-for-90 for 533 yards, those four touchdowns, and two interceptions. The Ravens open up the season on Sunday, September 8 against the Miami Dolphins. McSorley will likely slot in as the third quarterback behind Lamar Stevens, and Griffin.
