5. Signing Matt Schaub, QB

Some people may disagree with this move but I feel the signing of Schaub is a good one.  Not only does he bring experience and durability, but also the benefit of a talented backup quarterback.

Also on Ebony Bird: Is Matt Schaub an upgrade on Keith Wenning?

Not counting his first few seasons as a backup with the Atlanta Falcons or his recent struggles and lack of confidence over the past two seasons with the Houston Texans and the Oakland Raiders, Schaub has had a pretty respectable career.

As a starter, Schaub has averaged over 3,400 passing yards and 19 touchdowns per season with a passer rating of 92.33. He has yet to miss a game due to injury for the past seven seasons, which shows his toughness and desire to compete.

I think that Schaub will work well with Joe Flacco and will be a helping hand as Flacco learns another new offense. I don’t think he will be called on all too often to replace Flacco on the field but I feel he will be a great back-up and teammate who will help our offense develop.
