Ahead of Tyrod Taylor on the depth chart, Joe Flacco hasn't missed a start in his entire career, making Taylor's contributions limited. Taylor's longest extended regular season action came in the 2012 season finale against Cincinnati when Baltimore already had their playoff seed cemented. The biggest impact he had on the game was running for 65 yards and a touchdown on nine carries. Taylor has competition for the backup now, with Baltimore having drafted Keith Wenning out of Ball State. The coaching staff has indicated they don't see Taylor as the quarterback of the future.
