David Olson

Ravens Sign QB Josh Woodrum

Well, that was fast. The Ravens have released quarterback David Olson just three days after signing him. In his stead, the team has signed Josh Woodrum.

Woodrum, who spent a chunk of the offseason with Buffalo, is Liberty University’s all-time record holder for career passing yards. While Joe Flacco heals up from injury, he’ll be the team’s new No. 3 quarterback in practice behind Ryan Mallett and Dustin Vaughan. Unless he really impresses or Flacco’s injury is more severe than previously thought, his stay might not be much longer than Olson’s.

On Sunday, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti told fans that the team is carefully weighing the ramifications of signing Colin Kaepernick while also thinking about bringing in RG3 for a workout. While today’s shuffling of QBs probably won’t mean much for the team’s 53-man roster, we could see more significant changes on the QB depth chart in the coming weeks.

The Ravens have added a quarterback to the roster, but not the one everyone was waiting on. One day after coach John Harbaugh admitted that the team has interest in Colin Kaepernick, the Ravens have signed former arena league signal caller David OlsonDavid Olson (vertical)

Signing Olson doesn’t necessarily slam the door shut on Kaepernick given the amount of roster tinkering that goes on this time of year, but the the Ravens now have three healthy arms in camp while Joe Flacco heals up from a minor back issue. The Ravens could theoretically circle back to someone like Kaepernick if they want to push Ryan Mallett or Dustin Vaughan, but by that point Kaepernick would be late to the party with only a few weeks to go before Week 1.

Olson, a Stanford product, was buried behind Andrew Luck, Josh Nunes, and Kevin Hogan while in college. He has only three passes in live NCAA action to his credit.
