One area the Ravens need to shore up is at the backup quarterback. It appears the Ravens have already zeroed in on a potential replacement, according to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

Schaub makes a lot of sense for quite a few reasons. He's familiar with West Coast offense principles. He's a veteran with starting experience that would make things easy on the coaching staff if an injury were to occur to Joe Flacco. With how his career has trailed off a bit, getting him cheap shouldn't be a problem.

It's clear the Ravens aren't ready for Keith Wenning to be the primary backup. Getting someone such as Schaub at a fair price would be ideal for the Ravens.
