Report: Ravens plan to sign Kenjon Barner

Mike Florio and Charean Williams look at the larger-than-expected number of NFL players who opted out of the 2020 season after the deadline passed on Thursday.

When De’Anthony Thomas opted out of the 2020 season, the Ravens needed a new kick returner. They may have found him.

The Ravens are expected to sign veteran return man Kenjon Barner, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Barner is typically listed as a running back, but the Ravens don’t really have a need there and will most likely be using him primarily on special teams. Barner has 555 career punt return yards and 1,124 career kickoff return yards.

A 2013 sixth-round draft pick of the Panthers, Barner has also spent time with the Eagles, Chargers, Patriots and Falcons.
