It's come to this....




Who Will Be Ravens’ New Backup Quarterback?

As quarterback Matt Schaub moves into the starting role, that leaves punter Sam Koch as the primary backup.

Harbaugh joked in the post-game presser yesterday that he’s not exactly comfortable with that situation, so the Ravens will look to the market for a new backup. CSNMidAtlantic.com’s Clifton Brown named five possibilities:

Jason Campbell: The Ravens reportedly wanted to sign Campbell this offseason, but he seems content in retirement after a 10-year NFL career. A phone call wouldn’t hurt.

Rex Grossman: The 35-year-old veteran is available after the Atlanta Falcons released him in September.

Christian Ponder: The 2012 first-round pick is sitting on the market after he was cut by the Oakland Raiders in August. He started 36 games for the Minnesota Vikings, amassing 6,658 yards, 38 touchdowns and 36 interceptions.

Bryn Renner: This is a former Ravens practice-squader who has some experience in the system and became a popular player in Baltimore after a strong preseason that included an impressive game-winning drive.

Keith Wenning: The Ravens would have to pluck Wenning from the Cincinnati Bengals’ practice squad, but he was originally drafted by Baltimore in 2014 (sixth round).http://www.baltimoreravens.com/news/article-1/Late-For-Work-1123-You-Wont-Believe-What-Hardcore-Flacco-Did-And-Internet-Has-Mad-Respect/3ae59b7a-794d-4d38-a86b-fe9d04e8217e

Why not just sign Renner?

'He's my choice out of this lot.

It's not like they have any money....




How's this for a staggering statistic? When the Baltimore Ravens place quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Justin Forsett on season-ending injured reserve this week, they will have a total of $62,839,417 worth of contracts completely unavailable to them (IR or dead cap).

With the 2015 NFL salary cap sitting at $143.28 million, even a Perry Hall High School graduate like myself can use my calculator app to determine that 43.8 percent of the total salary cap will not be able to help the team win another game this season.http://www.pressboxonline.com/2015/11/23/glenn-clark-ravens-joe-flaccos-knee-injury-will-have-no-impact-on-contract-negotiations

OK...it's the great Jimmy Clausen....




Clausen has played in two games this season. He entered after Jay Cutler suffered an injury in Week 2 and went 14-for-23 for 121 yards and an interception. Clausen started the week after and went 9-of-17 for 63 yards and two interceptions.

Over the past two seasons, Clausen has played in six games and started two. He has posted a quarterback rating of 65.3 over that time.

The former Notre Dame standout was a second-round pick of the Carolina Panthers in 2010. He started 10 games for the Panthers as a rookie and struggled with a 58.4 quarterback rating and three touchdowns to nine interceptions. He didn’t see any action for the Panthers the next two years before the two parted ways.

Baltimore needed an immediate backup quarterback behind Schaub, and could still add another to the practice squad. Harbaugh indicated that Bryn Renner, who played well for the Ravens in the preseason, is a possibility for that job.http://www.baltimoreravens.com/news/article-1/Ravens-Claim-Jimmy-Clausen-As-Backup-Quarterback/dca6c117-efa2-45f3-b6dd-b9992d16f110
