The Baltimore Ravens have managed to retain one of their own as LB Chris Board has been re-signed.

Board was one of a few Ravens who was not designated a tender prior to free agency. Now, however, he will have the opportunity to earn more than a tender would have paid him with incentives.

Board has played 47 games for the Ravens and become heavily involved in their special teams unit. After more than two years playing in a backup role, Board started two games in 2020 and totaled 2.5 sacks, two tackles for loss and five QB hits.

It will be interesting to watch whether this re-signing impacts the Ravens’ decision to also keep Anthony Levine Sr., who has been the Ravens’ go-to man as a special teams contributor for the past nine years. Though they have different roles and play different positions, there’s only enough cap space to go around and every dollar is at a premium.
