The Baltimore Ravens now have a new backup quarterback as veteran Matt Schaub has agreed to a one-year deal with the team.
Schaub, who was originally drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft, dressed for 11 games last season with the Oakland Raiders and completed 5-of-10 passes for 57 yards with two interceptions.
Prior to landing with the Raiders, Schaub played the previous seven seasons with the Houston Texans.
The Ravens needed a new backup for starter Joe Flacco after losing Tyrod Taylor during free agency to the Buffalo Bills.
During his career against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Schaub has completed 39-of-54 passes for 340 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He beat the Steelers 17-10 in his last start against them that came in 2011 as a member of the Texans.
