The Ravens are re-signing safety and key special teams contributor Jordan Richards to a one-year extension, according to a report from ESPN’s Field Yates.
The contract is reportedly a one-year deal worth $1.015 million with $125,000 guaranteed. Richards’ extension qualifies for the veteran salary benefit, meaning his cap charge for the 2021 season will be just $875,000.
Richards, 28, was signed by the Ravens in October 2019 after being released by the New England Patriots. He played in nine games in 2019 as a Raven and in 16 in 2020. Richards is not a regular defensive player, but he’s a valued asset on the Ravens’ special teams units.
The Ravens also announced an extension with tight end Nick Boyle on a two-year extension on Friday.
