Should the Ravens go after Favre?

July 15, 2008|By JAMISON HENSLEY

The Ravens are unlikely to show interest in acquiring Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre, a team source said. The team is set to hold an open competition among Troy Smith, Kyle Boller and Joe Flacco in training camp. Two seasons ago, the Ravens went the veteran route, trading a fourth-round pick for Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair. He went 13-3 in his first season before injuries ruined his second one. The Ravens had expected to get one more season out of McNair to ease the transition to a young quarterback, but he abruptly retired in April. One obstacle facing the Ravens if they were to acquire Favre is salary cap space. The Ravens need to sign most of their draft picks, including No. 1 pick Flacco, and they are working on a new contract for Terrell Suggs.
