The Baltimore Ravens have seen their outside linebacker room lose many pieces over the course of the last year. Tyus Bowser went down with a torn achilles in Week 18 of the 2021 season, they drafted David Ojabo who suffered a torn achilles at his Pro Day, and also saw both Vince Biegel and Steven Means go down with torn achilles injuries over the past month.
On Thursday, it was reported by multiple outlets that Baltimore added to their pass rushing ranks by bringing in veteran Jason Pierre-Paul. The deal is reportedly for one year, and should give the Ravens a solid veteran presence to help the team generate pressure on opposing quarterbacks.
