Falcons No. 2 QB Matt Schaub is retiring after 17 seasons in the league.
It ends up a long strange trip for the 39-year-old, one that began in 2004 as Michael Vick's backup in Atlanta. Schaub showed well in occasional mop-up duty and was acquired by Gary Kubiak's Texans for a pair of second-round picks in 2007. Schaub ended up making two Pro Bowls and leading the league in yardage in 2009, helping to usher in this era's hyper efficiency. Although his final years in Houston (2012-13) were an interception-marred mess, Schaub went on to carve out a second career as a backup for the Raiders, Ravens and Falcons. He spent the past four years holding Matt Ryan's clipboard. Although not even close to a Hall-of-Famer, Schaub belongs in the "hall of very good." Jan 04 4:57 pm (EST)
- Schaub is expected to have his $2 million option picked up by the Falcons, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
- Schaub completed 50 of 67 pass attempts for 580 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in six appearances -- including one start -- during the 2019 season.
- Schaub completed five of nine pass attempts for 55 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 35-22 loss to the Buccaneers. All Matt Schaub News
