2. Melvin Ingram would be a great fit with the Baltimore Ravens

Jadeveon Clowney had a bitter departure from the Cleveland Browns, while Melvin Ingram angrily requested a trade from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Both could be reasons for these guys winding up with the Baltimore Ravens to seek some revenge on their rivals.

Melvin Ingram is 34 right now, so there is an understandable reason why he has not signed yet. Beyond that, he left Pittsburgh and has bounced around the NFL since because he wants playing time. He thought Pittsburgh would play him over Alex Highsmith and did not want to be depth. The Steelers wisely bet on their younger player to breakout and now extended the ascending Highsmith.

If the Ravens sign Ingram, will he be mad when the younger David Ojabo is getting snaps over him? Or will he see that Ojabo has been slow to practice and think that he can get enough work mixing in with the second-year player, coming off a serious injury, and now with a minor injury? If so, he is another good fit. He has over 1,000 snaps lined up along the interior, and Ingram has always fought hard in run defense. The question is whether he can embrace the right role.
