With Joe Flacco out for the year, the Ravens are currently moving forward with Matt Schaub and Jimmy Clausen as their quarterbacks. However, the team appears to be keeping an eye on the free agent market as well. According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the club is working out former Texans signal-caller Ryan Mallett today.
Mallett, who initially joined the Texans prior to the 2014 season, started six games over the last two years for the team, totaling 1,170 passing yards, five touchdowns, and six interceptions during his time in Houston. He was cut by the Texans in October after missing the team’s charter flight for a game in Miami — it was the second time this year tardiness was an issue for Mallett, who also missed a training camp practice.
It’s not clear at this point whether the Ravens are considering signing Mallett, or whether the team is merely taking a look at him to assess his value as a potential insurance policy in case Schaub gets injured, or perhaps as an offseason target.
