Report: Ravens met with RB Derrius Guice — Baltimore Beatdown
This is certainly an interesting development as the Ravens do not necessarily have a pressing-need at running back. However, it wouldn’t hurt to add another one as Kenneth Dixon is still relatively unproven, while Javorius Allen is entering the final year of his contract. In addition, Alex Collins had a fantastic first season with Baltimore, but the question is, can he repeat it?
Guice is an intriguing prospect, who is, arguably, the second best running back in this class. Behind Penn State’s Saquon Barkley, there is a debate on who is the next best running back. Regardless, Guice is a physical runner, who fights for every single yard. He has big play ability as his longest run at LSU was 96 yards. The only knocks on him are his health concerns and his lack of production when catching passes out of the backfield.
Guice looks good in purple.....
Report: Willie Snead tries out for Ravens — PFT
Willie Snead visited the Ravens last week, and apparently they wanted to see more of the receiver.
Snead, a restricted free agent, tried out for Baltimore on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
The Saints tendered Snead, but they used the lowest tender so they will get no compensation should they decide against matching a deal with Ravens or anyone else.
Snead has been productive at his peak. Whether that’s a product of Sean Payton and Drew Brees remains to be seen.
Report: Ravens tried out WR Michael Floyd and WR Willie Snead — Baltimore Beatdown
Floyd is an intriguing player. Until recent years, Floyd has been a solid receiver in the NFL. In 2013, Floyd posted 1,041 receiving yards and five touchdowns with the Cardinals. The following two years, he had over 800 yards and six touchdowns in each. In 2016, Floyd’s production dipped to 446 yards and only one touchdown. Floyd was released the same year by Arizona when he was arrested for a DUI.
Much like the Snead workout, this could be low-risk/high-reward. Both receivers will likely come at discounts and can produce yards.
