In the 2003 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens selected Terrell Suggs with the No. 10 pick, and Kyle Boller with No. 19.
Suggs panned out, becoming a fan favorite and elite pass rusher, and Boller didn’t, becoming a quarterback the city loves to hate.
Now, Boller, despite the fact he’s completed just 17 passes in the last two seasons, finds himself in an NFL training camp once again.
The San Diego Chargers official website reports that Boller has signed a one-year deal with the team after backup Charlie Whitehurst suffered a knee injury this week. Veteran Philip Rivers and rookie Jarrett Lee from LSU are the only other quarterbacks listed on the Chargers’ roster right now.
Boller has posted a 69.5 career quarterback rating, throwing 48 interceptions and 54 touchdowns in his eight-year NFL career. He started all 16 games for the Ravens in 2004, but his career in Baltimore came to an end in the 2008 preseason when he suffered a shoulder injury and was placed on IR. Joe Flacco has started every game under center since.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
