The Denver Broncos on Wednesday night won the battle for coveted backup quarterback Patrick Ramsey, with ESPN.com learning the club has reached a contract agreement with the five-year veteran.

Ramsey, 28, will sign a two-year contract worth approximately $5 million, with about $1.5 million in guarantees.

The Houston Texans and Carolina Panthers also were interested in Ramsey, who recently was released by the New York Jets after only one season with the team. Ramsey will become the backup to Denver second-year pro Jay Cutler, and he ostensibly replaces Jake Plummer in that role.

Denver last weekend traded Plummer to Tampa Bay, and the veteran abruptly retired. The Broncos then began exploring their options for a proven veteran to back up Cutler, their first-round choice in 2006, and quickly targeted Ramsey.

The Broncos will be Ramsey's third team in three seasons, but one of the reasons he settled on Denver as his new home is the overall stability of the organization and the chance to settle in with a franchise and coaching staff he respects.

The first-round choice of the Washington Redskins in 2002, Ramsey has played in 34 games, and his résumé includes 24 starts. He has completed 480 of 862 passes for 5,649 yards, with 34 touchdown passes, 29 interceptions and a passer rating of 74.9. His best season came in 2002, when he made 11 starts for the Redskins. Although he had a 4-7 record that year, Ramsey had 14 touchdown passes and nine interceptions.

The former Tulane star threw only one pass for the Jets in 2006, and New York released him rather than pay a roster bonus due this spring.

Blessed with a strong arm and solid pocket presence, Ramsey has suffered from being overcoached at times and, certainly during his tenure under coach Joe Gibbs in Washington, he was mishandled and lost confidence.

Given the volume of teams that pursued him after the Jets released him, though, it appears there are still people in the league who value him.

This is shaping up nice for us. Now all we need is to address DL and Safety in the draft and we'll be all set. Ramsey will be a decent back up.

So this guy is a "coveted qb" with a career qb rating of 75 and his best season was 4-7?

Ramsey stunk with the Jets last year.

Even though he was only involved in one play all year..he was horrendous in training camp..and during the season dropped to 3rd on the depth chart behind Kellen Clemens..

The word on him is that he makes horrible decisions,even in practice.

I don't know how well Patrick Ramsey will do in that system, but the dude has a good arm, IMO - he should have been the starter for Washington when Gibbs took over. I believe he'd have done much better than Brunell

I do like that he's about 10 years younger than Brad Johnson and they got him for less money... doesn't mean he's greatness by any means, but I'd rather have a young strong armed backup than one that is older than me.

If ever curious, just shoot a note to KCTitus... he is the keeper of the official lexicon. Just know that Broncos' Homerism is the only such homerism that is both approved and encouraged to express on ChiefsPlanet.
