I thought the kid from Texas A&M showed some promise. I'm surprised someone didn't take a flyer on him. At least if the passing game breaks down he could potentially make plays with his legs. Palko would be a wise pick up as well, IMO.
As I was watching, it was obvious that BL is not the QB to back up this system. His long windup makes it difficult to get off the quick pass that Ben has been doing all year. He is much more suited to the Arians system where he can begin his motion as the receiver is 5 yards downfield, and finally release it when he is 40 yards deep.
For what it's worth, Dennis Dixon was cut from the Ravens' practice squad last week.
Ravens sign tight end Alex Silvestro to practice squad, cut Dennis Dixon
Former Patriot visits Ravens

The Ravens have signed former New England Patriots tight end Alex Silvestro to the practice squad and cut quarterback Dennis Dixon.
Silvestro visited the Ravens this week, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.
Silvestro can also play defensive end, but indicated he will play tight end for Baltimore.
Silvestro is a 6-foot-3, 267-pounder who was with the Patriots last season after going undrafted out of Rutgers.
"I'm just trying to see what I can do to help the team out and do whatever I can do," Silvestro said. "I'm trying to learn as much as I can as fast as I can."
Silvestro was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster to replace wide receiver Tiquan Underwood one day prior to the Patriots' Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants last season.
"That was a good experience," Silvestro said. "That was something you don't forget."
He went to high school with Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman in Paulsboro, N.J.
Silvestro has registered no NFL statistics in one career game.
Dixon is a former Pittsburgh Steelers backup who was signed earlier this season.
I think we should be more concerned with the defense in this game. If Clark is out, this game could become embarassing pretty quickly. Will Allen doesn't have the range of Clark, and Mundy.... simply ugghh.
Seriously - we're a team now with only 2 QBs on the roster, both of whom have a high chance of making the I-Hop roster as a one-sided pancake on any given play.
Am I the only one wondering why we're not signing someone else who at least has been on an NFL team with "QB" as a roster position?
Or is Harrison going to be our savior again? :-)
