That’s what you’d expect after tallying 6.5 sacks, 17 quarterback hits, and 22 total tackles for the San Francisco 49ers last season.
He also played the entire regular season for only the second time in his career.
Part of the credit goes to 49ers defensive line coach Kris Kocurek who unlocked Key’s talent by having him line up using the three technique.
Teams that are looking to bolster their defensive would like to have the 25-year-old defensive end from LSU.
Therefore, several teams are inviting him to their lairs, as NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo shared.
Where’s Arden Key today, Mike?

Garafolo dubbed it as a U.S. Tour for Key and revealed that his tour continues in Owings Mills, MD where he will meet with the Baltimore Ravens.
Key would come in handy for the Ravens, especially after several injuries on defense last season.
However, Baltimore isn’t the only team interested in Key because the Jacksonville Jaguars also brought him for a visit.
The Jaguars are in a frenzy, spending over $200 million on the first day of free agency alone.
Getting Key would be another step towards relevancy in the AFC.
Garafolo also quoted his tweet, saying that the Detroit Lions are also trying to get Key.
Which Team Will Get Key?
If the third-round pick in the 2018 draft would choose, Baltimore gives him the best chance of winning.
Yes, they missed the playoffs last season but that was mainly due to injuries.
With everyone back, including quarterback Lamar Jackson, expect the Ravens to make a push for the postseason.
Jacksonville and Detroit are emerging teams and he might get more playing time there.
If his priority is to get a massive deal, the Jaguars and the Lions are the teams he must highly consider.
