With the Ravens signing Marc Bulger to a lucrative backup quarterback contract earlier this week, what’s going to happen to Troy Smith? The former Ohio State star has settled in as an NFL backup – his desire to be a starter was noble but unrealistic – but with Bulger around, Smith is unlikely to ever get on the field in Baltimore.
Peter Schmuck of the Baltimore Sun says that if the rumors that Smith could be dealt to Buffalo are true, that would be a win-win for the quarterback and the Ravens. Though his chance of playing in Buffalo would be far greater, Smith would still not be the front-runner in the Bills’ quarterback competition. Smith is a good athlete, but he simply doesn’t have an NFL caliber arm.
