The Baltimore Ravens have signed quarterback Matt Schaub to a one-year deal, the team announced. The deal is worth $3 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Schaub, 33, threw just 10 passes for the Oakland Raiders after losing the team’s starting spot to rookie Derek Carr in training camp.

Schaub is an 11-year veteran and started his career with the Atlanta Falcons where he backed up Michael Vick for three seasons. The Falcons were reportedly interested in bringing Schaub back this off-season. The New York Jets were also said to be pursuing Schaub.

He then spent seven seasons as the starting quarterback for the Houston Texans. Schaub made the Pro Bowl following the 2009 and 2012 seasons, and he lead the league with 4,770 passing yards in 2009.

In Baltimore, he will backup Joe Flacco, who started all 16 games last season. The Ravens lost quarterback Tyrod Taylor when he signed with Buffalo earlier this month.
