Quinn: “Matt Schaub is Certaintly Somebody We Could Add”


Despite having T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree as a back-up, it seems that Dan Quinn may want another veteran QB on the roster in case something were to happen to Matt Ryan.

"“Schaub is certainly somebody that we could (add),” Falconscoach Dan Quinn said this week at the NFL Annual Meeting, per ESPN.com’s Vaughn McClure. “As we get through it, we’ll let you know if we go down that road.”"

With plenty of cap space to spend, the Atlanta Falcons do have the money to assure themselves a more than capable back-up quarterback on the depth chart.

Schaub, who turns 34 in June, would serve as a back-up to Matt Ryan if he were to come to the Falcons

"“In Cleveland last offseason, Shanahan and the Browns were named as a team interested in trading for Schaub when he was still with the Texans. Shanahan was Schaub’s offensive coordinator for years in Houston, but the passer also shares Atlanta ties after playing for the Falcons during his first three seasons in the NFL.” NFL.com"

Matt Schaub has familiarity with Kyle Shanahan’s offense; he once was on Shanahan’s offense at the Houston Texans in 2009. And keep in mind that Schaub was once living in Atlanta, from 2004-2006, when the Falcons drafted him with the 3rd round pick in the NFL Draft.

He will turn 34 in June, and will certainly be spending his time as a back-up behind Ryan.
