Todd Bouman Released, Signed By Jacksonville

Anthony LashleyContributor IMay 5, 2009

With the Ravens' signing of John Beck official, the Baltimore Ravens released Todd Bouman yesterday. Bouman had a tumultuous relationship with the team, first being signed in Sept. 3 as Ravens backups Kyle Boller and Troy Smith were both dealing with injuries at the time.

After only a month, the team released him as Boller was nursed back to health, only to resign him four days later. Even this season, Baltimore resigned Bouman for another year before cutting him yet again.

Bouman never played a down with the Ravens, serving as the emergency quarterback for all 18 games the Ravens played last season. Although Bouman did not have a physical impact on the Ravens' season, Joe Flacco has previously stated that Bouman advised him as he learned the system. The Baltimore Ravens backups QBs have now started a combined total of two games.

Early today, the Jacksonville Jaguars quickly snatched Bouman off of the FA list and signed him to a one year contract worth the veteran minimum salary of $845,000. Bouman had previously had two stints in Jacksonville, the first as a backup to Quinn Gray during 2007 and the second when he was released during the final cuts of the 2008 offseason.
