The Ravens went through the 2011 season with a rookie sixth-round pick, Tyrod Taylor, as their lone backup quarterback. Maybe, just maybe, they’re changing their minds and looking at more experienced quarterbacks.
According to NFL Network, the Ravens are trying out their former first-round pick Kyle Boller and former fifth-round quarterback Dennis Dixon of the Steelers on Thursday.
Another report has the Ravens trying out former Colts quarterback Curtis Painter on Thursday as well.
At this point in the offseason, it’s probably the best that they can do and Boller is the best of the bunch. He has a chance to be a serviceable backup if he is indeed signed.
