NFL Rumors: Ravens' keeping an eye on Texans' Yates, Keenum?

Ladies and gentlemen I would like to point out that we’re only 10 days away from the NFL Draft which means we’re getting closer and closer to the pre-season.

I don’t know about you guys, but I just got very excited. Now there’s no doubt that the Houston Texans need help with their quarterback position, but they could be picking defensive tackle Jadeveon Clowney number one overall.

With the organization trading away former starter Matt Schaub to the Oakland Raiders, the only two quarterbacks on the roster as of today happen to be T.J. Yates and Case Keenum.

Keenum picked up eight starts with the Texas last season, finished 137/253 for 1,760 passing yards, nine touchdowns and six interceptions. The 26 year old quarterback also picked up a rushing touchdown. Yates on the other hand who put up a career high 949 passing yards during the 2011 season, only appeared in three games.

He did not make a start but threw for 113 yards and two interceptions. Now according to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens are ‘keeping an eye’ on both quarterbacks T.J. Yates and Case Keenum.

The Baltimore Ravens hired former Houston Texans quarterback Gary Kubiak as their offensive coordinator who obviously coached both players. The only backup behind Joe ‘Money Man’ Flacco is Tyrod Taylor. Taylor has struggled, so it would make sense that Kubiak could talk the Ravens into trading for one of his former quarterbacks.

They know his system, so why not? Right now I think that Case Keenum would be the obvious choice to back up Flacco.
