Ravens' Matt Schaub: 'I've got a lot more football left in me'
"I had a rough year. I learned from it. I've got a lot more football left in me," Schaub said. "I know what I'm capable of. It's just a matter of finding the right opportunity."
Schaub, 33, registered only 10 pass attempts last season for the Raiders. The veteran, however, has completed 63.9 percent of his passes in his career while racking up 130 touchdowns and 86 interceptions. He won 40 games in a five-year stretch (2008-12) with the Texans.
Schaub will serve as a backup to starter Joe Flacco next season.
"In this role as a backup, you still have to mentally and physically get yourself ready to play. You never know," Schaub said.

Report: Romo restructures deal, saves Cowboys $13M in cap space
Romo indicated in a radio interview Tuesday he was going to restructure his contract and also said he was willing to take a pay cut so the team could re-sign running back DeMarco Murray, who eventually signed with the Eagles.
"DeMarco ended up asking me, 'Why don't you take a pay cut?' I said, 'I will. I would take a pay cut to go do this,'" Romo said. "I was like, 'They're going to restructure me.' That's the same thing in some ways, just for the salary cap purposes. He was like, 'OK, now we're back to being friends again.' I would take $5 million less if it meant getting him back.
"He knew that. It was just funny how he was literally worried about that part of it for a week. I'm like, 'That's not the reason.' I'm like, 'Obviously I'll restructure. I would even take a pay cut.' He was like, 'OK, we can be friends again.' It's amazing what you think about in those moments."

Malcolm Jenkins: Eagles players not surprised by McCoy trade
While most folks were shocked when the news broke in early March the
Safety Malcolm Jenkins told NFL Network on Wednesday it was not surprising when it was announced McCoy was being traded for linebacker Kiko Alonso.
"In the locker room a lot of guys weren't surprised by the trade, what we were more surprised of was that it was just a player-for-player trade," Jenkins said. "I think everybody thought we would have gotten more -- Kiko, plus a couple draft picks, you know, somebody else...
"You look at the style of runner that Chip wants in his offense and even though Shady is one of the best backs in the league, he's not necessarily what Chip is looking for all the time. Chip thinks he's a great running back, he knows his talent is there, but our (system) is really predicated on downhill, somebody who is going to hit the hole every time. It's about getting up in the defenders face as fast as you can and that's not necessarily Shady's running style."
The Eagles replaced McCoy's absence in the backfield by signing former Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray, who rushed for 1,845 yards in 2014, and former Chargers running back Ryan Mathews.
"When you talk about what you can get for -- if you are looking to acquire more talent -- I just think Shady's cap number and what we were able to get in return for Shady, I think made sense," Jenkins said. "And some guys in the locker room who kind of know what's going on weren't surprised by it."
