The Baltimore Ravens have addressed a few key needs so far in free agency adding the likes of Marcus Williams, Morgan Moses, Michael Pierce, and almost Za’Darius Smith.
Their external additions have strengthened a roster that honestly still has quite a few holes. Perhaps they could look to fill some of those holes by bringing back a few familiar faces.
The Ravens have already seen the likes of Bradley Bozeman, Eric Tomlinson, and Anthony Averett depart for new teams, but there are still quite a few in-house free agents that remain on the market.
Some of those players the Ravens could look to re-sign (including Patrick Ricard who they just re-signed on Monday). Let’s take a look at five internal free agents the Ravens could still bring back this offseason.
6. Chris Board, LB, Ravens
A former undrafted free agent, Chris Board has been a rock-solid depth linebacker over the last four years and a core special-teamer. He’s never going to be a star and probably not even a full-time starter, but he’s still a valuable player nonetheless.
Board went undrafted out of North Dakota State in the 2018 NFL Draft and shortly thereafter signed on with the Ravens. He would go on to make the 53-man roster out of training camp and he’s missed just one game in his four years in the NFL.
Board has plenty of fans within the Ravens organization including special-teams coach Chris Horton. That said, he has another big fan in now-former defensive coordinator Wink Martindale.
Could Board follow Martindale to New York? It’s certainly possible. The Ravens should look to bring him back, though, if they can.
