Ravens sign former 49ers quarterback

New, comments

Not that one.

The Baltimore Ravens have made another roster move at quarterback, this time actually signing a former San Francisco 49ers QB.

No, not that one.

The Ravens announced on Monday that they have waived quarterback Dustin Vaughan and signed free agent Thaddeus Lewis. The Ravens originally signed Vaughan to a reserve/future contract in January. This marks the third quarterback Baltimore has signed since July 28.

Current starter Joe Flacco is sidelined with a back injury. He injured it during a workout leading up to training camp. The Ravens announced on Friday that an examination revealed his progress is good, and he is expected to return to practice at some point in the preseason. They said he is not expected to play in any preseason games, but “the plan” is for him to be starting when Week 1 of the regular season arrives.

Lewis was one of the first free agent signings of the brief Chip Kelly/Trent Baalke era. He signed a one-year deal, and then proceeded to tear his ACL in the preseason opener. He spent the season on injured reserve, before hitting free agency once again this year. He will serve as a camp body behind Ryan Mallett.
