Ravens Roundup: Seth Roberts signed, Josh Jacobs and Eddie Lacy visit Baltimore

Here's what the Baltimore Ravens were up to on Friday, April 5:

Player Updates:

  • 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.

DB Tony Jefferson: Ankle, sidelined as of Jan. 25
DB Tavon Young: Groin, sidelined as of Jan. 25

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: The return of Pernell McPhee

Kick off your Friday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news including the return of Pernell McPhee.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. Pernell McPhee is a Baltimore Raven again! The Ravens signed McPhee to a one-year deal according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. McPhee was drafted by the Ravens in 2011 during the fifth round and spent four seasons with the team before landing in Chicago and then last season in Washington. The Ravens hope to capitalize on McPhee's 31 career sacks as they hone-in on producing a "diversified pass rush."

2. The Ravens have also signed offensive lineman R.J. Prince, who was last with Pittsburgh. Prince was waived by the Steelers after not seeing a down during the 2018 season. The Steelers picked up Prince as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina.

3. Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has been suspended for the first six games of the 2019 regular season. Peterson reportedly violated the NFL's performance-enhancement drug policy. The Ravens face the Cardinals during Week 2, so this is good news for the guys in purple.

4. The Ravens have reportedly signed former Denver Broncos linebacker Shane Ray, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ray had an unproductive season with the Broncos last year with one sack and one forced fumble in 11 games played.

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.
