While everybody’s talking about Nick Chubb and Saquon Barkley, the Baltimore Ravens also have some serious issues at the running back position.
They lost star running back J.K. Dobbins for the season, and while they have Gus Edwards and Justice Hill, it seems like they’re not entirely sold on their current RB corps.
With that in mind, they’ve reportedly brought in a trio of veterans, such as former Jacksonville Jaguar James Robinson, former Miami Dolphin Kenyan Drake, and former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Ronald Jones (via Dov Kleiman).

They lost JK Dobbins for the season on Week 1.

Robinson is perhaps the best option, as he lost his spot on the team because of Travis Etienne’s arrival and then went through the same once Breece Hall was able to return for the New York Jets.
Kleiman also points out that multiple teams — Ravens included — have shown an interest in Cam Akers, who was inactive in the Los Angeles Rams’ divisional clash vs. the San Francisco 49ers.
Akers’ tenure in Los Angeles has been full of controversy, and judging by Sean McVay’s words about him, he might never play a single snap for the team again.
The Ravens were supposed to present a new-look, pass-happy offense with Todd Monken and move on from their run-heavy approach from the previous era.
Still, they want to have as many bruising running backs as they can handle on the roster, and given the recent history of major injuries at the position, it’s hard to blame them for trying to add more depth to that crucial position.NEXT: Ravens LB Sends Strong Message To Bengals Players
