Schaub signed a two-year, $9 million contract with Atlanta on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Schaub returned to the Falcons last season after beginning his career as a backup with the team in 2004. He provides the team with a quality veteran option behind reigning MVP Matt Ryan.
Schaub completed eight of 12 passes for 78 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns. Schaub completed 10 of 15 passes for 179 yards in the first preseason game, and while Thursday's performance was far less impressive, there's been no indication he's facing any real pressure for the No. 2 quarterback job. Starter Matt Ryan hasn't missed a game since 2009.
The Falcons have signed Schaub, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The veteran QB will thus reunite with Kyle Shanahan, who he worked with while both were with Houston, with Schaub now slated to serve as Matt Ryan's backup in 2016.
Schaub (chest) is not listed on the Ravens' Week 16 injury report. That said, the Ravens' official site relays that coach John Harbaugh isn't inclined to tip his hand with regard to the team's starter at QB for Sunday's game against the Steelers. On hat front, the 4-10 Ravens' options are Schaub, Jimmy Clausen -- who has started the team's last two games -- and Ryan Mallett, a newcomer who could get an on-field audition before the close of the season.
Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun relays that Jimmy Clausen worked with the Ravens' starters in warmups Sunday, while Schaub (chest) worked with the backups, so it looks like Clausen is in line for his second straight start. Though the Ravens haven't made such an assignment official, the signs point to Clausen getting the starting nod against the red-hot Chiefs on Sunday.
