The Baltimore Ravens agreed to terms with quarterback Joey Harrington, who was released Friday by the Atlanta Falcons.
Due to the current uncertainty with their quarterbacks, the Ravens brought in Harrington, Chris Simms (released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and Todd Bouman (released by the Jaguars) for workouts Monday and decided to sign Harrington because he has the most recent playing experience.
Troy Smith and Kyle Boller have been sidelined this preseason due to injury and illness. Smith, scheduled to start the third preseason game, has a viral infection and was hospitalized from Thursday to Sunday. Smith has also lost a considerable amount of weight.
Boller is battling an injury to his throwing shoulder and still hasn't been cleared to practice or play. The Ravens also have rookie Joe Flacco and Casey Bramlet on the roster.
