The Ravens are interested enough in former Bengals running back Bernard Scott to offer him a tryout, according to the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

Scott was not signed to a contract following a workout on Tuesday, though the Ravens appear to be flirting with the idea of bringing in a third running back. It could also be a situation where the Ravens see Scott as a useful tool to learn some of the Bengals' game-plan secrets, given there's a Week 10 meeting with Cincinnati looming.
With the way the running game has struggled through six weeks, it's unclear what Scott would actually bring to the table. The Ravens have been unable to get great yardage from either Ray Rice or Bernard Pierce after seeing success from them in the past.
The Ravens briefly had a third back this year in Shaun Draughn, who was waived recently.
We'll see if the Ravens decide to bring him on or not. No matter who's at running back, that area will continue to struggle until the offensive line issues are worked out.
