Falcons eye Rattay as possible backup QB

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Published on: 03/26/07

Tim Rattay, who played the past two seasons with Tampa Bay, has been contacted by the Falcons about their backup quarterback position.

"We've had some conversations with them, but nothing is imminent right now," Jim Steiner, Rattay's agent, said Sunday.

Tim Rattay played five years for the 49ers and two with the Bucs, with a 60.7 completion percentage.

With the trade of Matt Schaub, the Falcons don't have a quarterback on the roster who has played in an NFL game in the past three seasons.

They signed Chris Redman last week, but he hasn't played since the 2003 season. D.J. Shockley and James Kilian have not played in any regular-season games.

Rattay, a seven-year veteran, has started 18 games and played in 36 games. He spent five seasons with the San Francisco 49ers before his stint with Tampa Bay. During his career, Rattay has completed 60.7 percent of his passes, thrown 28 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.

I think if the Falcons can land Rattay, they will have a pretty good back up qb. He could probably do better than Vick as a starter actually.

Not bad for a back up. It'd be nice to have somebody with as much experience as he has for your backup. ;-D
