I’m still sticking with just two quarterbacks again in this scenario. Robert Griffin III was signed as an insurance policy but aside from the 2015 season, Joe Flacco hasn’t missed a regular season or postseason game. That alone is enough to feel comfortable with him starting under center and if Flacco is benched because of poor play, Jackson is going to be next man up. Griffin can still act as a valuable mentor to Lamar Jackson throughout the entire offseason process but with a cheap one-year, $1.1 million contract, the Ravens can feel justified in releasing him.
Running Back (4)

It’s still difficult to gauge running backs without pads on and there’s been no real indication of undrafted rookies making strides in OTAs. Kenneth Dixon will still have to prove he can stay healthy and out of league punishment but assuming that happens, he’ll slot in as the No. 3 back along with Alex Collins and Buck Allen.
I highlighted Pat Ricard as a second-year player poised to make a leap in 2018 and that can surely happen if he secures the starting fullback spot again and shows off his versatility as a blocker and pass-catcher.
