Schaub will replace Joe Flacco (torn ACL) as Baltimore's starting quarterback, The Baltimore Sun reports. With Flacco out for the season, Schaub is in line to start the final six games, assuming he stays healthy. The situation isn't conducive to a late-career turnaround, as the Ravens have also been decimated by injuries at wide receiver and running back. Schaub was a solid starter for the majority of his career, but he has struggled mightily since the end of 2012. He's one of the lesser options among all NFL starters.
Newly acquired Ravens quarterback Matt Schaub told reporters during a phone conference that his elbow is "fine" and that he has plenty of football left in him, per the Baltimore Sun. "I had a rough year. I learned from it. I've got a lot more football left in me," Schaub said. "I know what I'm capable of. It's just a matter of finding the right opportunity." Schaub, 33, registered only 10 pass attempts last season for the Raiders. The veteran, however, has completed 63.9 percent of his passes in his career while racking up 130 touchdowns and 86 interceptions. He won 40 games in a five-year stretch (2008-12) with the Texans. Schaub will serve as a backup to starter Joe Flacco next season. "In this role as a backup, you still have to mentally and physically get yourself ready to play. You never know," Schaub said.
The Ravens have signed quarterback Matt Schaub to a one-year deal, the team announced. 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. Schaub will serve as a backup to starter Joe Flacco next season.
Quarterback Matt Schaub will sign with a team this week, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter. He is reported to have scheduled a visit with the Ravens, per the Baltimore Sun. Schaub, who was released by the Raiders earlier in the offseason, has also garnered interest from the Jets, Falcons, Cowboys and Titans . Schaub threw just 10 passes as a backup last season, completing five for 57 yards.
Falcons coach Dan Quinn is not ruling out bringing back former Atlanta quarterback Matt Schaub to compete for the backup role behind starter Matt Ryan, per ESPN. "Schaub is certainly somebody that we could [add]," Quinn said. "As we get through it, we'll let you know if we go down that road." The 34-year-old Schaub was released by the Raiders in mid-March. T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree are the other quarterbacks on the Falcons' roster.
