Josh Bynes signs exclusive rights free agent deal

US PRESSWIRE

Will be a contender for the starting Will linebacker spot.

Inside linebacker Josh Bynes signed his exclusive rights free agent contract deal with the Ravens on Friday, according to the league's transaction wire.

Bynes figures to be in contention for the starting Will linebacker spot, as he and Arthur Brown are considered the top two for the position right now. However, the Ravens could go in a different direction if they decide to take a capable inside linebacker in the first few rounds of the upcoming NFL draft.

Bynes started six games in 2013 before Jameel McClain returned from a spinal cord contusion. Bynes still rotated in and finished the season with 45 total tackles and three pass deflections.

Ravens fans will forever remember Bynes as the player who recorded the final tackle of Baltimore's 34-31 win over San Francisco in Super Bowl XLVII.

Bynes went undrafted in 2011 before signing with the Ravens. He spent his rookie year mostly on the practice squad but was called up for one game against the 49ers, when Ray Lewis suffered a toe injury.

Bynes appeared in 10 games during the 2012 season and was called up after Lewis tore his triceps injury. He ended that regular season with 34 tackles and a pass deflection.
