Running back Corey Clement has agreed to contract terms with the Ravens. His agent confirmed on Monday night., filling out the team’s depth at the injury-depleted position before training camp. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Top running backs JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards, who missed all of last season with knee injuries, will begin training camp this week. Listed as physically unable to perform. With the arrival of Clement and the departure of Ricky Person Jr., who left camp last week after reporting with his fellow rookies, the Ravens should have five healthy options for Wednesday’s first full-team practice.
Veteran Mike Davis and rookie Tyler Biddy featured prominently in the Ravens’ offseason workouts. Justice Hill, who missed all of last season with a torn Achilles tendon, was healthy enough to participate. Nate McRae, who had two carries last season with the Ravens, is also involved. Team officials are hopeful Dobbins and Edwards, who can return to practice after being cleared, will be ready for their Sept. 11 season opener.
Clement, 27, had 33 carries for 140 yards (4.2 per attempt) and six catches for 29 yards and a touchdown in 17 games with the Dallas Cowboys last season. He spent his first four years with the Philadelphia Eagles, starring in their Super Bowl LII victory over the New England Patriots.
In another move Monday, the Ravens converted $9 million of cornerback Marlon Humphrey’s $10 million base salary for 2022 into a signing bonus, creating $7.2 million in cap space. According to ESPN. The team entered this week with less than $1 million available.
