The Baltimore Ravens signed quarterback Curtis Painter on Thursday to a one-year contract.

The former Colt will back up Joe Flacco and has been reunited with Baltimore's quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell, who was the head coach at Indianapolis while Painter was there.

He started eight straight games and appeared in nine last season for the Colts, but was on the losing end every time.

He finished his season passing for just 1,541 yards, six touchdowns and nine interceptions while losing three fumbles and completing just 54.3 percent of his passes.

The Purdue alum spent three seasons with the Colts, who drafted him in the sixth round of the 2009 draft.
