The Ravens made another change at quarterback Monday, though not the one coaches, team officials and ownership discussed heavily over the past few weeks.
One of the reasons Baltimore opted not to sign free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick earlier this offseason was because the Ravens did not have a need for anything more than a camp arm. Despite the fact that Kaepernick, according to someone close to him, would have been interested in that opportunity, the Ravens cycled through a group of third and fourth stringers over the last two weeks in Vaughan and David Olson. Now, Lewis joins a group that includes backup Ryan Mallett, Liberty product Josh Woodrum and the injured Joe Flacco (back).
Adding another established veteran to the mix is interesting. Mallett went 9 of 18 for 58 yards in Baltimore's preseason-opening win over the Washington Redskins this week -- a performance that was complimented by head coach John Harbaugh, but not exactly one that quieted Mallett's outside critics. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported earlier that Baltimore would only turn to Kaepernick if the team believed it needed an upgrade over Mallett.
