Ravens are expected to look into T.J. Yates. They've been monitoring his situation with Texans for a while.

Me too, but it makes the Wenning pick seem like such a waste.  Should have just used that one on campanaro?

Yeah the pick was probably a waste, but if we do end up bringing in Yates and he wins the job over Wenning, then we chalk that one up as a loss. It happens.  You could also throw Taliaferro in there as well because I doubt he makes the roster over Forsett. You never know how its going to shake out with roster cuts, UDFA, and camp competition post draft.

people act like we need to hit on every draft pick...every other team makes bad draft picks too, it happens.

Re: Tj Yates released 


as I`ve said,i`m a fan of as much competition as possible,but,I`m not a yates fan....I`m sure that kubiak knows much better than I do regarding all things yates...still,i`m not necessarily thrilled by the guy.....

you want your back-up to be capable...for yates,thats a ??? imo...hopefully wenning still gets an honest opportunity if we sign yates......

I could see us keeping Wenning and signing Yates to a 1 year deal. That way we have an experienced vet backing up Flacco instead of a rookie. Then go with Wenning beyond 2014. We've been playing russian roulette with having only one backup on the roster the past few years. As durable as Flacco is, odds are one of these days he's going to suffer an injury. 

I see no reason why Forsett and Taliaferro won't be on the opening day roster with Ray Rice's suspension looming. After Rice comes back we'll see who stays and who goes.

Not really sure how Wenning could be considered a wasted pick at this point?

Yates is just like Taylor, in the last year of his rookie deal.  So, if Yates is claimed on Waivers, he'll be a UFA next year. 

Basically, whether it's Taylor or Yates, it's likely just a one-year bridge to Wenning (so as to not have a rookie 6th round pick as the #2).

If Yates clears waivers - not sure why he would if they really wanted him - then he could sign a longer term deal, but I would doubt he'd want to do that now.  I'd think he'd wait until next March to decide to lock himself in to a longer term deal.

Why I fully agree with what Ravor wrote...  I have to agree.  

But that is because I wasn't crazy about the pick to begin with, and would have preferred the pick to be used on Campy from the start.  
I know unheralded, weak armed, un-athletic QB's can sometimes become something...  and so Wenning could.. .   I just don't see it.  I'd love to be proven wrong, but history tells me I have good odds..  at least 5 in 6...  so I'm not out there on a ledge by any means.

Won't happen but Flacco, Yates,
Wenning to PS, Taylor to waivers.

Re: Tj Yates released 


Yates is a great plan-B quarterback. AKA ideal backup QB.

Wenning...we drafted him to replace Tyrod (well, we didn't know Yates would shake lose...) but he has starter potential as well. Low-grade starter potential. But that's just a projection...the entire NFL has seen a young TJ Yates start for the Texans in the playoffs. 

Yates to Baltimore makes sense, you can never have enough good young QBs hungry to make plays when their name is called upon. Plus he has NFL playoff experience.

Yates may just command a few more coins that we expect...a team like Buffalo may be the perfect home for this guy, to compete with EJ Manual...if his arm is strong enough for COLD windy games in Buffalo...

Re: Tj Yates released 


One thing to keep in mind is that Yates actually lost the second string job in Houston while Kubiak was the coach, so while I do think it's possible the Ravens bring him in, I don't think it's as much of a no-brainer as many others do.

That's not entirely accurate. They wanted to see what Case Keenum could do given that their season was done. I hardly believe that he "lost" his job to a guy in Case Keenum who went 0-8 . Picking up T.J Yates makes nothing but sense. He's better than anyone we have on the roster currently not named Joe Flacco
