Ravens expected to ink Callahan: Former Wesley College standout quarterback Joe Callahan is expected to sign with the Baltimore Ravens, according to several media reports.

Baltimore is looking for a backup QB to replace the injured Robert Griffin III on its roster.

Ravens’ offensive coordinator Greg Roman coached Callahan at Holy Spirit, N.J. High in 2008. Callahan has spent time with four different NFL teams, including the Buccaneers, who released him in April.

Callahan reportedly just needed to pass his physical before signing with Baltimore.
