A handful of teams have expressed some interest in veteran free agent quarterback Matt Schaub, and the Dallas Cowboys are reportedly one of them.
According to the Baltimore Sun, Schaub will visit the Ravens this week, seemingly making them the most likely destination for the 33-year-old. The Falcons have also shown “strong interest,” and there’s plenty of connections there. Not only was Schaub drafted by the Falcons--in the third round, back in 2004--and his old offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Kyle Shanahan is now Atlanta’s offensive coordinator.
Between the visit to Baltimore and all the connections to Atlanta we’d guess Schaub, a Pro Bowler in 2009 as a member of the Texans, will wind up a Raven or a Falcon, backing up either Joe Flacco or Matt Ryan. But the Cowboys and the Tennessee Titans apparently have an eye on Schaub as well.
Last year, Cowboys’ backup Brandon Weeden appeared in five games and started one--a 28-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals--and finished with 303 passing yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.
