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

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.

Should have just used that one on campanaro?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.

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...
