Boller finally inks the deal !

WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) -- The Baltimore Ravens and holdout quarterback Kyle Boller reached a verbal agreement on a five-year deal Wednesday.

Boller, the 19th overall pick in this year's draft, is expected join the team Thursday after flying in from California.

``Kyle is very excited to be on his way to camp to start his career with the Ravens,'' said Mike Sullivan, the quarterback's agent. ``He can't wait to be there.''

The 6-foot-3, 230-pound Boller started every game for California last year, throwing for 2,815 yards and 28 touchdowns.

Ravens coach Brian Billick said the competition for the starting quarterback job is open between Chris Redman, Boller and Anthony Wright. Redman, the heavy favorite, started the Ravens' first six games in 2002 before a back injury ended his season.

Boller, who missed three days of practice, will now join the fray.

``It's great to have it done. The time lost is irretrievable, but hopefully we can make up that time for him,'' Billick said. ``It's good to have everybody in camp now.''

Good for him,can't wait to see him on his ass week 1...oh,that's right,he's still gotta win the job.Redman had some nice things going before the injury...Redman's job to lose.

Similar to the Jax situation...Boller nor Lefty gets the start other than because of injury or late in the season with no playoff chances.

I agree with you about the "Bitchboy." :-) Another example of people getting all excited about combine workouts.
