Ravens work out TE Crockett Gillmore

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

In a surprising move, the Ravens reportedly hosted former tight end Crockett Gillmore for a workout.

Gillmore was drafted by the Ravens in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He showed promise early in his career; he started 10 games in 2015 recording 33 receptions for 412 yards and four touchdowns. Unfortunately, his injury struggles ultimately held him back. In 2016, he played in only seven games due to a thigh injury. He then missed the entire 2017 season after suffering a MCL injury in training camp. It should be noted that Gillmore attempted to transition to the offensive line in 2018, but he is listed as a tight end in the report.

Gillmore’s tryout could be a sign that the Ravens are still exploring their options for the third tight end spot on the depth chart. Charles Scarff, Eli Wolf, and Jerell Adams are currently competing for the spot. Right now, Adams appears to be the favorite; Scarff was reportedly informed that he was cut until Wolf suffered a knee injury.

They have also explored using Pat Ricard as their third tight end.

Gillmore seems like a long shot to sign a deal, but if the front office is not confident in Adams, Wolf, or Scarff, a potential Gillmore return is not out of the question.
