The Baltimore Ravens began their voluntary offseason workout programs Monday.
Here's everything you missed.
1. Running backs Gus Edwards and De'Lance Turner, center Matt Skura and offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor all signed their exclusive rights free agent tenders Monday. An exclusive rights free agent is a player who only has one or two seasons under their belts, and unlike free agents, don't have the freedom to negotiate with other teams. Their rights instead belong exclusively to the team that applied the tender.
Retaining Edwards is huge as the 2018 undrafted free agent rushed for an insane 718 yards on 137 carries and two touchdowns over 11 games. He'll be slated behind Mark Ingram.
Skura earned the league's top performance-based bonus after starting all 16 games at center in 2018.
2. Inside linebacker Patrick Onwuasor signed his restricted free agent tender Monday. After reportedly placing a second-round tender on 'Peanut' back in March, no other team extended an offer. Had a team done so, the Ravens would have had the opportunity to match any offer that came their way. Starting at ILB in 2018, Onwuasor posted 59 tackles, 5 .5 sacks and two forced fumbles.
3. New number, who dis? That's what several Ravens were saying Monday after getting new numbers for the 2019 season. Wide receiver Seth Roberts will wear No. 11, running back Mark Ingram will wear No. 21, cornerback Justin Bethel will wear No. 28, safety Earl Thomas will wear No. 29, safety DeShon Elliott will wear No. 32, cornerback Anthony Averett will wear No. 34 and cornerback Marlon Humphrey will wear No. 44.
