Why sign David Olson?

Postby achernar » Fri Jul 28, 2017 7:09 pm

He also spent time with the CIF’s Wichita Force and the Indoor Football League’s Iowa Barnstormers — the same arena team that produced Kurt Warner.

Before his pro career got started, Olson was a career backup in college, spending four seasons at Stanford before transferring as a graduate student to Clemson. He never threw a pass at Stanford and completed one of three passes at Clemson for a loss of 1 yard.

All of his passes in college can fit in one gif:

The Ravens had other options at quarterback. Why not try a upgrade in the QB situation?

This could be why:

Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Olson's college coach Jim Harbaugh vouched for him to brother John Harbaugh.


They don't know how long Flacco's injury is going to last. If he's over it in a week, then they can cut Olson. They would sign somebody like Kaepernick if they were sure Flacco would miss time. If Joe's OK, they can cut Olson in a week or two. They wouldn't do that with Kaep.

But with Mallet being the starting quarterback, I'm bet in a player who could help the team...
Kaep is not the answer (his salary is high)...


but with retrospect of the Medical staff of the Ravens
Flacco could be out a long time lol

Kaep is underachieving
Olson is young, of course he's not ready, but he can contribute
