Malik Cunningham apparently is dealing with the same issues in Baltimore that he dealt with in New England.

The Ravens signed Cunningham off the Patriots practice squad in Week 15. Cunningham, who went undrafted in the 2024 NFL Draft, spent most of his time in New England learning receiver instead of playing quarterback, which is his natural position.

Cunningham rode the New England practice-squad rollercoaster after being cut late in the summer.

He was a healthy scratch the following week before landing back on the practice squad.

Cunningham and the Ravens will host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in the AFC Championship Game.
