Former Virginia standout and Ravens fourth-round selection from the 2014 draft has inked a deal with the Titans. He will reunite with Dean Pees and former defensive teammate Kalamei Correa. Brent Urban overcame a slew of early injuries to become an effective rotational player and occasional starter on the Ravens front seven.
The terms of his deal haven’t been released yet, but a one year prove-it deal would make sense. The behemoth 6-foot-7, 300 pound defensive end made some memorable plays in the purple and black, including three blocked kicks.

The Ravens should expect to receive a sixth-round compensatory pick in 2020, which be their second after the expected third-round selection from the loss of Za’Darius Smith. They were slated to receive two thirds, a fourth and a fifth from the losses this season before the additions of Earl Thomas, Justin Bethel and Mark Ingram cancelled all but the Smith compensatory pick.
Urban publicly thanked the Ravens for developing him into the player he is today on Twitter.
