OWINGS MILLS, Md. (June 2, 2004) -- The Baltimore Ravens have offered Kordell Stewart a one-year contract and hope to have the veteran quarterback in next week's minicamp.

Stewart would replace the injured Anthony Wright as the backup to Kyle Boller. The Ravens wanted Stewart to participate in the two-day passing camp that began Wednesday, but he probably will take a few days to consider the offer.

Stewart visited the Ravens training complex and left a positive impression on offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh.

"I think he's hungry, and I think he's appreciative of the opportunity," Cavanaugh said. "If it does come to fruition, then I'll think we have what we wanted: A quality veteran backup that can help tutor Kyle and be ready to come off the bench if we need him."

The two-day passing camp was hastily added to the Ravens' offseason regimen and was optional for veterans.

"It would have been nice to have Kordell here," Cavanaugh said, "but he'll get caught up in plenty of time."

Stewart played in eight years with the division rival Pittsburgh Steelers before enduring one rocky season in Chicago last year. If nothing else, he knows the Ravens -- and the Ravens know him.

"He's excited about being on a team he knows well and has played against. He sees the passion we play with, and that appeals to him," Cavanaugh said.

It would be great to see him used as Slash, like the old days. Do you think he still has it in him?
