The Ravens have made it fairly clear they want to run the ball down opponents throats in 2019. They’ve gotten off to a solid start in accomplishing this by signing battering ram Mark Ingram to be their bell cow, but it appears they may not be done making moves just yet. Yesterday afternoon, Baltimore held a workout for former Packers and Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy.

This would be an intriguing move, but it’s fair to wonder what the fit would be with Baltimore. Ingram is clearly the guy based on what’s been invested in him, and Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon have shown serious promise.
Of course, they’re only kicking the tires at this point, and it’s possible if they do sign him that he only ends up being a camp body. They did the same thing with Trent Richardson a few years ago and he never cracked the active roster. However, if the Ravens did end up signing Lacy, it would only be to the benefit of Baltimore if he managed to play his way onto the roster.
We’ll see how this shakes out, but apparently the Ravens front office has a serious affinity for Alabama running backs. Should this situation continue to develop, we’ll be sure to keep you guys updated.
