BALTIMORE RAVENS

Key Players Added

Key Players Lost

QB Joe Flacco (72.0), ED Terrell Suggs (70.0), WR Michael Crabtree (63.6), S Eric Weddle (80.7), RB Alex Collins (61.3), ED Za’Darius Smith (71.7), LB C.J. Mosley (73.6) John Brown (64.7)

Overview

The Baltimore Ravens are going to look a whole lot different in 2019. While the addition of perennial Pro-Bowl safety Earl Thomas will soften the blow of Eric Weddle‘s departure, you have to wonder about how the team overcomes the loss to their pass rush. After losing defensive leader Terrell Suggs and up-and-coming rusher Za’Darius Smith, the team will simply need to upgrade the edge position in April’s draft.

Returning pass rushers Willie Henry, Tim Williams and Tyus Bowser combined for 3.5 sacks on 363 total snaps (35%) last season.
