Here's all of the Baltimore Ravens news you missed over the weekend.
1. Head coach John Harbaugh is expecting Kenny Young and Patrick Onwuasor to step up at inside linebacker in 2019 with the departures of C.J. Mosley, Terrell Suggs and Za'Darius Smith.
“Those guys have to step up,” Harbaugh said at the NFL Annual League Meetings. “It’s kind of what we said before. We lost our starting All-Pro inside linebacker (Mosley). Good. We lost our rising star pass rusher from Kentucky (Za’Darius Smith). Good. We lost our 16-year veteran leader (Terrell Suggs). Probably a Hall of Famer. Good.
“....We’ll find a way and those guys are a big part of it."
2. In an interview with Denver-area radio station Orange & Blue 760 on Friday, Brandon Marshall revealed the Ravens were interested in signing the inside linebacker to a long-term deal but wanted to wait until May 8 in order to keep their 2020 compensatory picks. Compensatory picks are given to teams that lose more qualifying free agents than they gained the previous offseason. The Ravens currently hold a third-round comp pick in the 2020 draft.
3. After his 2018-19 season was put on hold when he was assaulted in downtown Baltimore Sept. 1, kicker Kaare Vedvik is expected to be back at training camp for the Ravens this summer.
"He was with us all season, he’s training now," Harbaugh said at the NFL Annual League Meetings. "He’ll be one of our camp kickers. Actually, I fully expect that he’ll kick well enough for us to trade him. That’s kind of, I would say, the goal."
4. Many current and former Ravens players gathered at Royal Farms Arena Saturday for Torrey Smith's Charity Basketball game, including Justin Tucker, Anquan Boldin, Anthony Levine Sr., and Ed Reed.
