Poll: Tyrod Taylor Ravens' No. 2 QB?
By James Walker
Rookie sixth-round pick Tyrod Taylor is arguably the biggest surprise in Baltimore Ravens training camp. The first-year quarterback has consistently made plays in practice and in Baltimore’s two preseason games.
But in our latest AFC North poll, we ask our community if Taylor should be Baltimore's No. 2 quarterback this season? The Ravens have Super Bowl aspirations. That makes a rookie backup quarterback a risky proposition.
Ravens starter Joe Flacco hasn't missed a start in three seasons. Baltimore cannot guarantee that every year. Therefore, can the Ravens still win with Taylor if Flacco goes down for a few weeks?
Or should Baltimore sign a veteran No. 2 quarterback? Last season the Ravens paid a lot of money to Marc Bulger for insurance. But the pool of veteran quarterbacks is not as deep this summer.
Using our SportsNation poll, vote on whether the Ravens should trust Taylor as the team's No. 2 quarterback this season. You can also share your thoughts in the comments section below.
