It wasn’t clumsy or circuitous, and now the wisdom of it will be determined on the field. The need remains the same, regardless of who’s cursing them out, picketing or boycotting games.
The Ravens need a reliable backup, just in case. And they need Flacco to make sure they never need to call on the backup.
The Seahawks released the backup quarterback Tuesday, hours after he was accused of domestic violence by his longtime girlfriend, Shabrika Bailey.
Dallas’ WFAA-TV reported that Bailey said he choked her to the point of blacking out last week and that her mouth had to be wired shut after he broke her jaw in two places.
Per the police release:
“On March 21, 2018 Mansfield Police Officers were called by Parkland Hospital staff in Dallas, Texas regarding an alleged assault which was said to have occurred in the city of Mansfield, Texas. Officers responded and met with the victim who provided a statement about an assault that occurred in 2300 block of Richmond Circle in Mansfield.”
Bailey, who said the pair have been in a relationship since they were in high school, told WFAA an argument began at his home in Mansfield, Texas, after she wouldn’t let him see a text message.

Jussi Jokinen and Tyler Motte scored for the Canucks (31-40-11), who won five of their final seven games to close out a playoff-missing campaign of their own. The Sedins were held scoreless in their final game.
McDavid helped start the scoring six minutes into play by feeding it across to Draisaitl, who beat Canucks goalie Anders Nilsson for his 25th of the season.
Jokinen got a piece of a Brendan Leipsic shot and it caromed past Edmonton starter Cam Talbot as Vancouver tied it 1-1 with two minutes left in the first.
Motte fished out a puck during a scramble out front and beat Talbot up high to give the Canucks a 2-1 lead.
