The Ravens‘ depth at outdoors linebacker took successful with veteran Vince Biegel’s season-ending Achilles tear yesterday, which might immediate the group to signal a longtime free agent on the place.
“Biegel’s injury could spur the Ravens to revisit [Pierre-Paul’s] status or look to sign another accomplished veteran,” The Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec wrote. “The list of available outside linebackers includes Everson Griffen, Trey Flowers, Carl Nassib and Takkarist McKinley.”
Biegel, who was getting reps with the first-team protection all through coaching camp, wasn’t a lock to make the 53-man roster, however his damage leaves Odafe Oweh, Justin Houston, Daelin Hayes, Steven Means and undrafted rookies Jeremiah Moon and Chuck Wiley as the one wholesome outdoors linebackers.
Tyus Bowser and second-round choose David Ojabo are rehabbing. Bowser could possibly be prepared for Week 1, however Ojabo is not anticipated to debut till October on the earliest.
“At the very least, the Ravens will need another outside linebacker to just absorb some practice reps and play in the preseason,” Zrebiec wrote. “They won’t want guys like Houston and Oweh playing much, if at all, during the preseason. If they are truly worried about the group as a whole and how long it will take Bowser and Ojabo to return and contribute, they could look for much more than a training camp body.”
