Report: Broncos, QB Ramsey agree to deal

DENVER (March 9, 2007) -- The Denver Broncos agreed to a two-year contract with veteran backup quarterback Patrick Ramsey, according to a published report.

The Denver Post quoted Ramsey's agent as saying Ramsey, who replaces Jake Plummer as Jay Cutler's backup, agreed to a deal worth between $4 million to $5 million.

"Patrick thinks it's the right place for him," Jimmy Sexton said.

Sexton did not return messages left by The Associated Press. Team officials declined comment.

The 28-year-old Ramsey, a first-round draft pick by Washington in 2002, was cut by the New York Jets earlier this week. Ramsey started 24 games for the Redskins, but threw only one pass for the Jets last season, his only year in New York.

Ramsey has 34 touchdown passes and 29 interceptions and a career passer rating of 74.9.
