Ryan Mallett Reportedly Had A Meltdown At Ravens Practice, Mocked By Terrell Suggs

If you’re looking for a career change, a quarterback spot on the Baltimore Ravens isn’t too far out of the picture for anyone who has thrown a football before. With Flacco out 3-6 weeks with a disc issue in his back, the Ravens have recently signed indoor league QB David Olson. Olson has only thrown 3 more passes than you or I have in his college career and boasted an awful 53.6% completion percentage in arena football.

Regardless of Olson’s bare resume, all he has to do is not be Ryan Mallett to impress at Ravens camp. Mallett was filling in for the injured Flacco on first team and had a nightmare of a showing, according to ESPN.com’s Jamison Hensley.

[Mallett] looked awful [filling] in for Joe Flacco (back) with the first team on Friday. He was intercepted at least five times and was nearly picked off two more times. On his last interception, Mallett threw his white towel in the air. His struggles were noticed by linebacker Terrell Suggs. “Hey Marty [Mornhinweg, offensive coordinator], tell Mallett to throw to the guys wearing the purple jerseys [the offense],” Suggs said.

So much pain in those eyes.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
