Here's your Tuesday roundup of the latest Baltimore Ravens news.
The Ravens are hoping to re-sign backup quarterback Robert Griffin III, Jeff Zrebiec of TheAthletic.com reports. Playing 2018 on a one-year, $1 million deal, Griffin III appeared in three games, completing 2-of-6 passes for 21 yards. Retaining RGIII would make a ton of sense for the Ravens. Lamar Jackson is their only signed QB at the moment.
Thinking about Jackson handing the ball off to running back Mark Ingram in 2019 certainly has fans excited, and for the Ravens' newest acquisition, he's got plans for the dynamic duo to change the game.
Ronnie Stanley is predicting a bright future for his QB. While speaking on NFL Network's Good Morning Football, the tackle had high regards for how Jackson handled himself his rookie season.
.@Ravens T @IamtheGuru79 on @gmfb on QB Lamar Jackson: "He's a guy who can change the game. I thought he handled the whole situation well. He was a great leader from the jump. He really showed his maturity. I'm proud to block for him." @nflnetwork— Will Selva (@WillSelvaTV) March 18, 2019
Safety Tony Jefferson got candid about the Ravens' offseason moves while on NFL Total Access. He admitted that it "hurt a little bit" to see veteran teammates like Terrell Suggs and C.J. Mosley exit in free agency, but is excited to have a future Hall of Famer in Earl Thomas on his side. .
In AFC North news, the Bengals cut linebacker Vontaze Burfict after seven seasons. The former Pro Bowler played seven games in 2018, totaling 33 combined tackles and 17 assist.
