The Baltimore Ravens aren’t in the market for a new starting quarterback but that apparently hasn’t stopped them from working a few rookie signal callers out this offseason. While Joe Flacco is still the man in Baltimore, Aaron Wilson reports that both Eastern Illinois’ Jimmy Garoppolo and Virginia Tech’s Logan Thomas have visited with the Ravens very recently.

It’s worth noting that the Ravens plucked Flacco out of Delaware State and he led them to a Super Bowl win a year ago. That doesn’t mean Garoppolo will be a stud in the NFL but it proves that the Ravens know how to scout their small school quarterbacks the right way.
If the Ravens are high on Garoppolo, that’s a glowing endorsement and may even mean he ends up behind Flacco on the depth charts when the 2014 season kicks off.
