QB Josh Johnson signs with Giants, agent says

Johnson, who led the Ravens to an undefeated preseason, signed Monday with the New York Giants, according to his agent, Doug Hendrickson. Johnson hasn't thrown a pass in an NFL game since 2011. However, he was sharp for the Ravens in extensive preseason action, completing 41-of-57 passing attempts for 365 yards and a touchdown, and rushing 18 times for 87 yards and two scores. The Ravens opted to keep Ryan Mallett as Joe Flacco's only backup. They've kept only two quarterbacks on their regular-season opening roster for seven straight seasons.

Price, who hasn't played a game since November because of a knee injury, practiced Monday in Ottawa and is "100 percent," according to Canada general manager Doug Armstrong. But Corey Crawford Holtby could play Friday and Saturday in exhibitions against the United States, according to coach Mike Babcock. "We're playing back to back right away in exhibition, so we wouldn't play a goalie back to back in exhibition for sure," Babcock said. "So there's going to be opportunities for more than one goaltender."
