With four quarterbacks on the Ravens' roster, the number of balls they get to throw in training camp can be a premium. That seems to be the case with Curtis Painter, who has gotten fewer snaps than starter Joe Flacco and Tyrod Taylor -- Painter's primary competition to back up Flacco. But Painter, who made eight starts with the Indianapolis Colts last season, said he's not fretting about his playing time in camp. “I guess it's kind of part of the way it is,” he said after Tuesday's practice at the team's headquarters in Owings Mills.

The Ravens have finalized a one-year contract with veteran quarterback Caleb Hanie, according to a league source. Hanie is in Baltimore today and will immediately join the Ravens' offseason conditioning program. The Ravens later announced the deal. In Hanie, the Ravens have added another quarterback for training camp and provided Tyrod Taylor with competition for the backup job. "He's a talented guy," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "He's played in games and maybe hasn't been in the ideal situation for him yet. Based on the evaluation of our pro personnel department and our coaches, they felt like he fit us pretty well.

The Ravens decided against a reunion with Kyle Boller, but they will reunite Curtis Painter with Jim Caldwell. After a free-agent quarterback workout today that also featured Boller and Dennis Dixon, the Ravens have agreed to a one-year deal with Painter, who started eight games last year for an Indianapolis Colts team that was without Peyton Manning. Caldwell, now the Ravens' quarterbacks coach, was Painter's head coach for the previous three seasons in Indianapolis. In his career, Painter, 26, has appeared in 11 games, all but two of them coming this past season.

Today we'll examine the quarterbacks: Current quarterbacks under contract : Joe Flacco, Tyrod Taylor Chances that the Ravens draft a QB in first three rounds : None. Even the harshest Flacco critic over the years has to grudgingly admit now that the Ravens are set at the quarterback position.

If the Ravens' plan for inserting their backup quarterbacks plays out as it has in training camp and according to the depth chart, Tyrod Taylor will likely get the first opportunity to succeed starter Joe Flacco in the team's preseason opener at the Atlanta Falcons. To observers, that could be construed as an indicator of the state of the competition between Taylor, the organization's sixth-round pick in last year's NFL draft, and Curtis Painter for the right to back up Flacco. But that's not the approach that Taylor is taking.

Ray Lewis, the Ravens' emotional sparkplug, has been a constant presence on the sideline in the three games he has missed because of turf toe on his right foot, praising teammates for their production and taking them aside for additional coaching. Quarterback Peyton Manning, the face of the Indianapolis Colts, is apparently doing something very similar with the offense. Defensive end Dwight Freeney told the Baltimore media during a conference call Wednesday that Manning -- who has been shelved all season after undergoing neck surgery in the preseason -- has been working with quarterbacks Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky.

The Ravens scored 24 of the game's first 27 points against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, and Indianapolis got a meaningless touchdown in garbage time to make the final score, 24-10. The Colts fell to 0-13, but they still earned a measure of respect from Ravens free safety Ed Reed. “Hats off to those guys because they are still being professionals over there,” the seven-time Pro Bowler said after the contest. “It's very tough circumstances. I know a couple of the guys over there.

The Ravens will hold their first full-team practice of training camp on Thursday, July 26. Each day leading up to the official start of camp, The Sun will examine several key position battles that will be decided during preseason. BACKUP QUARTERBACK The competitors : Tyrod Taylor, Curtis Painter Breaking it down : Even the most ardent Joe Flacco critic can't question the quarterback's toughness and durability. Flacco has never missed a game in four NFL seasons so Ravens' fans haven't had to fret about the identity of their backup quarterback.

The past 12 months have been a bit of a whirlwind for new Ravens quarterback Curtis Painter. A year ago, he was expected to be the backup to Peyton Manning with the Indianapolis Colts, but Manning sat out the season with a neck injury. Kerry Collins was ineffective early, pushing Painter into the starting lineup for Week 4. He made eight starts for the Colts, who ultimately finished 2-14, before giving way to Dan Orlovsky. Last month, Painter participated in a tryout for the Ravens, along with 2003 first-round pick Kyle Boller and former Pittsburgh Steelers scrambler Dennis Dixon.

Curtis Painter is all too familiar with the fleeting nature of job security in the NFL. In the span of less than a full calendar year, Painter went from backing up Peyton Manning to replacing the Hall of Fame-bound quarterback to being unceremoniously released by the Indianapolis Colts. That's why he's not putting too much stock into the sentiment that he has outperformed Tyrod Taylor in the Ravens' first two preseason games. "I think it's a little too soon to jump to those conclusions, but I think for me, I just want to keep getting better each time," Painter said Sunday.

By the end of the first quarter at the Georgia Dome on Thursday, the Ravens offense had no first downs and 9 total yards. Their starting defense had already allowed one touchdown and was on the verge of giving up another, and appeared powerless in trying to slow Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones who had a touchdown and more than 100 yards in less than 15 minutes. Even the special teams got into the disappointing act by allowing Dominique Franks to return a punt to the Ravens' 15-yard line.

For the first time in his fledgling career, Tyrod Taylor's reign as the Ravens backup quarterback to Joe Flacco is being seriously challenged. But rather than feel threatened by the presence of Curtis Painter, Taylor is embracing the test that should play out when training camp opens later this month. "There's always going to be competition, and I think that's how you step up your play," Taylor said during the team's mandatory three-day minicamp in June. "Both of us are competing, and by working together, we're getting better.
