2. Melvin Ingram could fit with the Baltimore Ravens

Melvin Ingram is another player in the same light as Jadeveon Clowney. He is 34 years old, and he has been in the NFL since 2012. So, he has the experience and does not need to sign immediately. However, he also has a role that would fit the Baltimore Ravens pretty well.

Just like Clowney, so much of his value comes from the role that the Ravens once used Za'Darius Smith in. It allows the team to be more creative and essentially gives them two tiers of rushers between Ingram and Bowser, who can move off the ball, and then Odafe Oweh and David Ojabo, who are more of the hand-in-the-dirt speed rushers.

The rest of the rushers have seen a drop in snaps played, but Ingram had 590 snaps in 2021 and then went to 509 last year. So, he did drop a bit, but not nearly like the others. Of all players out there, he may be able to provide the best impact.

His recent production, skill set, and role combination makes a lot of sense. Oh, and his tenure with the Pittsburgh Steelers ended poorly, and he would love to take it out on them. That makes it even better.
