Mortensen Wrong Again, Ravens Sign Bouman, Not Harrington
Yesterday it was reported that the Ravens had signed Joey Harrington to a quarterback crew that might be auditioning for the new reality show "Four Quarterbacks, No Fantasy Love," but that news turned out to be a little premature. John Clayton is now reporting that Baltimore signed Todd Bouman for a one-year deal for $830,000.
The 36-year-old Bouman has bounced around the league and now lands with his sixth different team at a time where decent quarterback are actually music to the ears of the coaches. With Kyle Boller out with an injured shoulder and Troy Smith still recovering from infected tonsils, the Ravens are starting rookie Joe Flacco this weekend against the Bengals.
The addition of Bouman at least gives a young, inexperienced quarterbacking squad the pleasure of having an old, inexperienced quarterback to lean on. Bouman has a career quarterback rating of 75.3 and has thrown as many career touchdowns, 11, as interceptions. Sounds like a Raven to me!
