The Baltimore Ravens have improved their depth behind starting quarterback Joe Flacco. On Tuesday the team agreed to terms on a deal with Matt Schaub.

Schaub is best known for his time with the Houston Texans before he career went south and he spent last season as a backup to rookie Derek Caar of the Oakland Raiders.

Going on 34, Schaub tossed two interceptions in 10 attempts lat season while being sacked three times. Schaub is a shaky bet going forward but should still prove to be better than Tyrod Taylor. The Ravens will be glad that Flacco has not missed a game in his seven year career.

According to various reports the Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys and Tennessee Titans all had varying degrees of interest in Schaub as a backup.
