A few days before the start of their first minicamp, the Ravens shuffled their QB group, signing John Beck to a 1-year contract and cutting 3rd-stringer Todd Bouman. Beck, a 2007 2nd-round pick of the Dolphins, is expected to compete against Troy Smith for the Ravens' backup QB job. "He was a very productive college player, but what also impressed our scouts was how competitive he is," Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said Monday. "We like to bring in good athletes who love to compete and he fits that." Beck, 27, who was released by the Dolphins last week, reportedly drew interest from 6 teams. He eventually chose the Ravens over the Jaguars.
