Here's what the Baltimore Ravens were up to on Friday, April 5:
- The Ravens signed right wing Seth Roberts to a one-year contract on Friday. Roberts was let go from the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, but he was picked up by Baltimore in only 24 hours. He is joining Willie Snead and Chris Moore, among few others. According to Rotoworld, Roberts seems to have a good chance of starting with the Ravens next season.
- Josh Jacobs, a running back from Alabama, visited the Ravens on Thursday. He is considered to be the top running back in this year’s draft. Jacobs turned 21 in February, and he ran 887 yards from scrimmage (640 rushing, 247 receiving) and completed 14 touchdowns for Alabama this past season.
- Eddie Lacy, a free agent formerly with the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers, visited the Ravens on Friday. Lacy was out of football for all of 2018 after he fell down for rushing 69/179 and getting banged up with some scratches. Tha Ravens openly said that they would like to add another running back (despite signing Mark Ingram to a three-year contract for $15 million in free agency), but Rotoworld doesn’t think Lacy is the answer. He turns 29 years old in June.
