Todd Bouman, one of three veteran quarterbacks to work out for the Ravens yesterday, accepted a one-year offer to sign with the team, a source told ESPN.com. But, perhaps we should still wait as it was reported last night by several news outlets that the Ravens had signed Joey Harrington. Apparently that is not the case.
Bouman, Chris Simms and Joey Harrington worked out for for the Ravens yesterday in Owings Mills. This morning, Bouman was offered a one-year deal worth $830,000, according to ESPN.com.
The 36-year-old Bouman has played for the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, Jacksonville Jaguars and St. Louis Rams. Bouman was an undrafted quarterback when he signed with Vikings in 1997. He was released by the Jaguars on Saturday.
The Ravens yesterday named rookie Joe Flacco the starting quarterback for the regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 7. and with Troy Smith still recovering and Kyle Boller likely out for the season the team needs a backup for Week One.
