They finished third in rushing yards per game at 145.8, trailing the Philadelphia Eagles and the Indianapolis Colts.
Likewise, Lamar Jackson was at his best before suffering an ankle injury.
A year later, there is still uncertainty regarding the return of Dobbins and Edwards.
After all, ACL injuries take time to recover and it’s hard to force the issue even if it is already healed.
But the Ravens found another running back that can help deliver the yards on the ground.
Breaking: RB Mike Davis is signing with the #Ravens, per source.
— Jordan Schultz (@Schultz_Report) May 10, 2022
Mike Davis is a nice addition for the Ravens because he compiled over 1,000 scrimmage yards and eight touchdowns with the Carolina Panthers two seasons ago.
In 2021, the former South Carolina standout had nearly 800 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns with the Atlanta Falcons.
However, Cordarrelle Patterson outplayed him, prompting the Falcons to release him after one season.
Davis has played for five teams in seven seasons, compiling 2,034 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns.
Ravens Will Keep Pounding The Ground
Marquise Brown requested a trade from the Ravens because he didn’t like the way he was used on offense.
It’s not his fault because Baltimore has a run-first offense led by their backfield and Jackson.
Aside from Davis, the Ravens drafted Tyler Badie in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
His addition gives Baltimore a running back trio of Badie, Davis, and Justice Hill.
However, Davis and Hill will be the first casualties once Edwards or Dobbins returns to action.
Therefore, Davis must make the most of their opportunity to score another contract elsewhere.
