Baltimore Ravens re-sign Terrance West on exclusive rights tender

New, comments

The Ravens' backfield is "cultivating mass", as Mac from 'It's Always Sunny' would put it.

Baltimore's backfield is now five-strong with the resigning of Terrance West. West was a Baltimore-area graduate out of Towson University when he was selected by the Browns in the third round of the 2014 draft. West was solid in his rookie year, but never caught on with Cleveland, and was frequently in the doghouse for one reason or another. The Browns parted ways with him in his sophomore season for a conditional pick from Tennessee, who he started two games for. West carried the ball 16 times for 51 yards and lost the ball two times over those couple of games. For obvious reasons, the Titans too also parted ways with the back.

West came to the Ravens via free agency by necessity, as both Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro were rendered out for the year by injuries. The former Brown was called up from the practice squad to face his old team in late November. West played in six games for the Ravens and rushed for 180 yards on 46 carries.

With west now rejoining the Ravens, his standing, as well as that of the other backs on the team, is very murky. Assuming Trent Richardson signs, the Ravens will roster six backs before the draft. With Forsett far from being a bell cow back, and the remaining backs all unproven, it should be very interesting to see how the pecking order shakes out, and who will even survive camp.
