Ravens add to crowded backfield with Terrence Magee signing

The battle at running back will truly be one to watch as camp begins.

The Ravens have now made their backfield even more interesting with the signing of exclusive rights free agent Terrence Magee. Magee, a undrafted rookie free agent out of LSU last year, resigned with the Ravens for his second year of professional football. Magee played in four games as a rookie and carried the rock two times for five yards and had one catch for two yards. Exclusive rights free agents such as Magee are players with three or less years of service time. These players can either accept their contracts or refuse to play.

The signing of Magee makes the Baltimore backfield four men strong, but that number will increase as the Ravens add a few more acquisitions. Terrance West will resign with the Ravens and return to join last year's group of Justin Forsett, Buck Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro and Magee. The Ravens are also expected to sign Trent Richardson to terms at some point this offseason, making the Ravens six deep at running back.

It remains to be seen how the Ravens' situation in the backfield will shake out. While Justin Forsett will undoubtedly lead in carries, there is plenty of young talent capable of forcing a committee, especially considering Forsett's age and recent season-ending injury.
