Bulger to back up Flacco in Baltimore

With former St. Louis QB Marc Bulger heading to Baltimore, as reported by ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter , the backup to Joe Flacco is now set. The question is: who will be the Ravens third-string QB? Troy Smith or John Beck?

Smith obviously is the better athlete, and in his three years in the NFL – all with Baltimore – he’s thrown a grand total of 89 passes for three touchdowns and an interception. Beck, meanwhile, has the better arm, and in 2007, he started four games for the Dolphins (he lost all four) but hasn’t played a regular-season down since.

Smith has talked recently about wanting to be traded somewhere where he could start. Today, that scenario grew even unlikelier for him with the Ravens.
