The Baltimore Ravens have found a new backup quarterback to replace Tyrod Taylor. The team announced they have signed Matt Schaub to a one-year deal.
Schaub threw just 10 passes after joining the Raiders before last season but has extensive experience as an NFL starter, having made 90 starts, mostly with the Texans. He’s completed 63.9 percent of his passes in his career while racking up 130 touchdowns and 86 interceptions.READ MORE: Gervonta Davis' Longtime Trainers Sit Down With Rick Ritter Ahead Of Staples Center Fight
Baltimore is in their second year of implementing Gary Kubiak’s offense (under Trestman’s hand this season), which Matt Schaub is familiar with. Kubiak coached Schaub with the Houston Texans from 2007-2014.Poinsettias, Trains Help H.P. Rawlings Conservancy Get 'Back On Track'
Schaub will serve as a backup to starter Joe Flacco next season. Joe Flacco has never missed a start (112 straight regular-season games) for the Baltimore Ravens. The only current QBs with longer streaks are Eli Manning and Philip Rivers.
The other option for the Ravens is Keith Wenning who is entering his second year in the NFL after the Ravens drafted him in the 6th round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Schaub and Wenning will compete for the number 2 spot behind Flacco when training camp rolls around.
