Ravens shuffle QBs, sign Josh Woodrum

The Ravens have spent time talking about the possibility of signing Robert Griffin III and Colin Kaepernick in recent days, but neither one of them was involved in a roster move on Monday that brought a new quarterback to the roster.

David Olson, who was signed last week after word of Joe Flacco’s back problem broke, has been waived and Josh Woodrum has been signed in a corresponding move. Ryan Mallett and Dustin Vaughan are also on the roster at quarterback.

Woodrum played college ball at Liberty and signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent last year. He was dropped after the rookie minicamp, spent time with the Colts before being cut in July and spent a few weeks on the Bears’ practice squad. Woodrum then moved onto the Bills’ offseason roster from January until he was dropped again in May.

That resume is one of a camp arm, which suggests that the team shares Flacco’s hope that a little rest will clear up what the quarterback described as stiffness in his back. If it looks like a longer absence is in the cards, the team may rethink the makeup of the depth chart.

  1. Signing a QB from one of the most right wing universities in America is a message from the Ravens that they kowtow to the right wing hate machine. I will be boycotting Ravens games from here on out.

    Wow, it really must suck to be you. I can’t imagine how hard it must be living in a world where everything is driven by a multilayered racially or politically motivated conspiracy. As messed up as it is I never realized just how fortunate I am to live in this one.

  3. Of these guys, only Kap can win you some games. Griffin is made of glass. And I can’t see the current backups doing much.

    LOLOL. on a Serious note, Woodrum is a better thrower than both Kap and RG3..

    Are you kidding!

    JOSH WOODRUM Draft Profile:

    Stiff and limited outside of the pocket. Has wind­up with a short­-armed release. Aims his throws. Over­-the-­top release with downward trajectory creates low, challenging catches. Lacks consistent accuracy and touch. Panics and rushes throws when he sees the blitz coming. Slow to see throws come open over the middle and will run receivers into traffic.

    Every QB that the Ravens bring in most of you say that they are better than Kaep. I understand that you don’t like the stand that Colin took from a political stand point but Colin has shown that he is an NFL caliber QB that has had great success in the league.

    When have we as Americans become so critical and cynical against people with views that are different than yours?

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    On a very serious not, if Woodrum was better he would have remained on one of those rosters!

  6. How much of a bum must David Olson be? He “played” in that indoor football league so I mean he is at least upright and mobile. He knows he is the QB anyway, isn’t lining up at Right Tackle.

    But the guy is brought in as a camp arm and he gets dropped a week later? hahaha
