1. OLB Tyus Bowser

Since being drafted by the Ravens in the 2nd round back in 2017, Bowser's career in Baltimore's been a mixed bag. From 2017-2020, he appeared in at least 15 games every season, but never started more than two. Then, in 2021, he started all 17 games and set career-highs in sacks (7), solo tackles (33), and QB hits (15). After that season, he signed a four-year, $22 million extension ... and has played nine games since. A torn Achilles in '21 and offseason knee injury the next year have derailed his once-promising career – he didn't appear in a single game this season – and with only one year left on his extension and a team-friendly cap hit, Bowser is an obvious candidate for the Ravens to move on from. Roquan Smith's not going anywhere any time soon and Patrick Queen is one of a few Ravens that are due for a big raise this offseason, so the writing's on the wall for Bowser.
