If the deal should fall through, the Ravens could consider other alternatives such as Kordell Stewart, Jake Delhomme, Charlie Batch, Shaun King or a college quarterback like Rex Grossman, Kyle Boller or Dave Ragone.
"Well, we have a whole list of them," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said. "But we wouldn't be moving too rapidly on that. There are going to be more quarterbacks that are going to come available in June.
"Right now the priority is to sign Jeff. If that falls through, then we'll take our time and try to find someone else to come in and play with Chris. That doesn't [rule out] the draft."
