As the Baltimore Ravens are just a few weeks away from training camp, the team still has 89 roster spots. This means that they will be signing someone in the coming weeks. While the team has Odafe Oweh, Tyus Bowser, and David Ojabo, they all have their questions, and a fourth edge rusher would be a great addition to push Tavius Robinson down.

So, who are some players that are still available, why would they fit the Baltimore Ravens?

5. Should the Baltimore Ravens bring back Justin Houston?

Baltimore Ravens fans know Justin Houston quite well. He was with the team for the past two seasons, and he recorded 14 sacks over that span. If the Ravens want a familiar name that they know can get production, why not sign Houston?

One big reason why Houston is not signed is that he is going to be 34 years old this season. He did not fall off last year in terms of production, but he went down from 577 snaps to 397 snaps. There is a chance that Houston hit his peak, and the Ravens know it.

At the same time, Houston is old enough and has played in enough schemes that he knows he does not need to sign with a team before training camp. Also, we know we he wants to hold out and find a team that gives him a chance to win. The best fit for Houston is probably just coming back to the Baltimore Ravens.

He will be in a rotation, he will be in competition for a Super Bowl, and he knows the scheme better here than anywhere else. The question may be when, and not if this happens.
