Matt Schaub Isn't Planning To Retire

Posted Jan 12, 2016

The Ravens' backup quarterback will evaluate things with his family, but wants to find a team.


Matt Schaub may not be back with the Ravens, but he isn’t ready to call it quits.

The Ravens’ backup quarterback will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. He’ll turn 35 years old during the summer and will be entering his 13th season.

“I still want to play,” Schaub said. “I’ve still got good years left in me. It’s just where I might be. We’ll see what happens moving forward.”

Schaub started two games this season for the Ravens. He threw a pick-six, which has been his downfall in recent seasons, in each start. The first came on an out pass in Cleveland and the other was on a tipped pass in Miami.

Schaub has now thrown a pick-six in each of his last three games. In 2013, he set an NFL record by throwing an interception for a touchdown in four straight weeks.

Schaub notched a win in his first start, completing 20-of-34 passes for 232 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. He threw for 308 yards in his second start against the Dolphins, but once again tossed two picks. His pick-six was the difference in a 15-13 loss.

Schaub was beaten up in the Dolphins game, which meant Jimmy Clausen started the next two games against Seattle and Kansas City. By the time Schaub was healthy enough to start, Ryan Mallett was in the picture and started the final two games.

Thus, Schaub fell to the No. 3 or No. 4 quarterback, depending on health, on the Ravens’ depth chart.

He was still a consummate pro, however. Schaub came in early and stayed late to help Mallett learn a new system and get ready for the final two starts.

“For me and Jimmy, it was just the way we are as teammates and players,” he said. “We understood the situation we were in as a football team and we want to help out any way we can.”

With Mallett finishing the year with two strong starts and under contract next year, he’s the favorite to become the top backup entering 2016. Schaub knows he may be looking elsewhere for a job.

“I’m going to get home and let my hair down a little bit and take a breather mentally and emotionally and physically,” Schaub said. “Then we’ll see where things go. We’ll see what happens come February or March.”
