Boller gets a job

Former Ravens quarterback Kyle Boller has found another job in the NFL, extending his career yet another year.

Boller, 31, signed a one-year contract with the San Diego Chargers Friday. He will back up Philip Rivers.

He has spent the past two seasons as a backup in Oakland, where he played in seven games for the Raiders and made one start. He spent one year with the St. Louis Rams before that.

Boller was the Ravens first-round draft pick in 2003 and was immediately anointed as the teams franchise quarterback, much like Joe Flacco five years later. But Boller didnt work out nearly as well. He started 42 games and generated just a 71.9 quarterback rating, throwing 45 touchdowns and 44 interceptions and eventually losing his job.

The Ravens parted ways with him after he sat out the 2008 season with an injury, but he remains a popular topic of conversation in Baltimore. Local talk-show switchboards lit up when the Ravens brought him back to town for a tryout last spring.

They didnt sign him, but now that he has signed with the Raiders, he will be a nine-year NFL veteran in 2012.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Roster spot questions begin

Kick off your Wednesday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Chris Board is making a run for a starting spot at linebacker for the Ravens, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. Board and Kenny Young will reportedly make a run for the starting spot opposite Patrick Onwuasor, but Board is pulling ahead of the pack Zrebiec says. The spot is up for grabs since the Ravens lost C.J. Mosley in free agency.

2. Also looking to earn a roster spot is wide receiver, Jordan Lasley. After training during the offseason with Lamar Jackson, many expected Lasley to show up to minicamp ahead of the pack, but after making some drops, Zrebiec says Lasley "will need to pick up his game" if he wants to get a spot on the Ravens roster.
