There was no panic at Ravens headquarters after Marc Bulger announced his retirement. Ravens coach John Harbaugh estimated that there was a 50 percent chance of that happening after the season.
So, will the Ravens jump on an experienced backup like Brodie Croyle, Jake Delhomme or Todd Bouman? Based on Harbaugh's comments, it doesn't sound like it.
"This year, there are not as many guys available because of the late stage," Harbaugh said. "But there are a few veterans. I'm also confident that, in a week or two, there will be some veterans available if we decide to go that route. Right now, we want Tyrod [Taylor, rookie sixth-round pick] to get the reps and see how he does."
The three quarterbacks on the Ravens' roster are: Flacco, Taylor and Hunter Cantwell, a practice squad player from last season.
