Ravens Bring Back OLB Pernell McPhee on One-Year Deal

The Ravens Tuesday announced they have re-signed outside linebacker Pernell McPhee to a one-year deal.

The 31-year-old was a fifth-round draft pick of the Ravens back in 2011. He played with Baltimore from 2011 to 2014, then played a few seasons in Chicago from 2015 to 2017, and was with the Redskins in 2018 before returning to the Ravens in 2019.

He missed nine games last season after being placed on IR on October 21st, with a triceps injury.

Based on How It Stands Right Now, the Ravens are Favored in All 16 Games in 2020

Ravens Agree to Terms on One-Year Deal with LB Jake Ryan

The Ravens on Saturday added to their linebacker core, as the team inked former Packer and Jaguar linebacker Jake Ryan to a one-year pact.

Ryan was a starter during his three-year run with Green Bay, but last season played in just a pair of games with the Jags due to injury and was not brought back.

He has been productive in his career, as Ryan tallied back-to-back 80-plus-tackle seasons in 2016-2017 with Green Bay, started 27 games over three seasons there and was also a valued special teams contributor.

Ravens Guard Marshal Yanda Set to Retire Prior to 2020 Season

Ravens guard Marshal Yanda plans to retire this off-season.

The Ravens announced Yanda’s retirement Tuesday. Yanda, 35, spent his entire 13-year NFL tenure with the Ravens. The 6-foot-3, 305-pound offensive lineman joined the AFC North franchise in the third round of the 2007 NFL Draft.

Yanda was an eight-time Pro Bowl selection and a two-time All-Pro. He won a Super Bowl with the Ravens in 2013. He started 15 games in 2019 after starting all 16 games in 2018. Yanda missed just two starts from 2010 through 2015.

Yanda was one of the best offensive lineman in NFL history and will likely be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The Ravens will gain about $7 million in salary cap space after losing Yanda.

What’s the Status of the Ravens Receiving Core as Free Agency Closes In?

NFL.com has a new article out discussing how things look to be shaping up with free agency ready to start very soon, and how teams wide receiver cores are looking going into the process.

Last draft the Ravens hit a homer with picking up ‘Hollywood’ Marquise Brown, who would lead the team in yards and catches in 2019.

You can read the entire article HERE – for now here’s what the piece says about the Ravens receiver situation.

Top three WRs in 2019: Marquise Brown (46-584-7), Willie Snead (31-339-5), Seth Roberts (21-271-2 — UFA).

Don’t let the fact that Ravens receivers were targeted only 182 times, the fewest in the NFL, fool you — the value of the space they created on the field far exceeded what can be captured by traditional stat-sheet metrics. In terms of measuring the impact of a WR when they aren’t the intended target, I factor in down, distance, score, defensive alignment and personnel to create an off-ball “score” that helps quantify the likelihood that a team will earn a first down or touchdown. Brown’s off-ball score increased over the course of his rookie year to the point that his score over the last seven games of the season would have ranked in the top seven if extended over a full season. It’s also worth noting that Baltimore leaned extensively on its tight ends; Mark Andrews led the team with 64 catches, 852 receiving yards and 10 touchdown receptions, while Ravens tight ends collected 42.5 percent of the team’s targets (180 of 424) and 43.3 percent of its receptions (125 of 289).
