Tyrod Taylor knows that he'll have to prove why the Ravens should make an effort to keep him as their backup quarterback this season.

Entering the final year of his contract, it could be a scenario where the Ravens choose to move on and prepare for the future at the position this year or decide to roll with him and extend him before the 2015 offseason hits.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh has previously stated that they're looking to add competition to the backup quarterback spot, and that appears it could come from the draft or free agency.

Speaking to The Baltimore Sun at Torrey Smith and Ryan Kerrigan's charity basketball game, Taylor said he and Harbaugh recently spoke about what will be expected of him this offseason.

"Yeah, we talked about it, and there's competition across the league every day," Taylor said.. "You've got to compete for your job to stay there. We know where we stand. I'm trying to get better every day. Competition  that's the name of this game."
