4. Would Kyle Van Noy fit with the Baltimore Ravens?

Kyle Van Noy would be an attractive fit with the Baltimore Ravens. He has been in the NFL since 2014, and he is 33 years old, so he is nearing the end of his prime. Van Noy started his journey with the Detroit Lions, then moved to the New England Patriots, where his career took off.

He spent a year with the Miami Dolphins before going back to New England and then playing for the Chargers last year.

Still, he is also in the same spot as Houston where he can catch on with a team quickly, but can wait and choose the best spot for his play. The Ravens can entice him with a strong roster, and also a role that fits his skill set.

The Baltimore Ravens need a SAM and often have Tyus Bowser in the role. Still, Bowser was banged up last year, and it ended with Malik Harrison rushing off the edge a lot. Kyle Van Noy has played that role as a SAM linebacker, who also can be considered an edge his entire career.

The reason he stayed with New England, and then followed Brian Flores to Miami is because only so many teams know how to use him correctly. However, the Ravens are a team that has this role in their defense. With both Bowser and Harrison healthy, the Ravens may wait this out, but it does make sense as a nice mix of both skillsets.
