Ravens Announce Beck Signing
The Baltimore Ravens have announced the previously reported signing of quarterback John Beck, who'd been released by the Miami Dolphins, to a one-year contract.
"John is a player we evaluated thoroughly in preparing for the 2007 draft," General Manager Ozzie Newsome said in a written statement released by the Ravens. "He was a very productive college player, but what also impressed our scouts was how competitive he is. We like to bring in good athletes who love to compete and he fits that."
The move reunites Beck with Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, who was the head coach of the Dolphins when that team drafted Beck in the second round two years ago.
Beck reportedly is to vie with Troy Smith for the backup job in Baltimore behind Joe Flacco.
