The Ravens tendered restricted free-agent RB Gus Edwards. The level of the tender hasn't been disclosed, but it's believed to be a 2nd-rounder, according to The Baltimore Sun. "Gus is going to be on the team, one way or the other," GM Eric DeCosta said Tuesday. "We're going to certainly tender him if we don't get a long-term deal done, but he is a Raven. He played his butt off this year, and he had a good season for us." Edwards has averaged 5.0+ yards per carry in all 3 seasons with Baltimore and set career highs with 144 carries, 723 yards and 6 TDs last year. He figures to see similar volume in 2021, making him a fringe fantasy option and a drain on RB J.K. Dobbins' value.
Ravens RB Gus Edwards (back) is expected to play vs. the Bengals today, while RB Mark Ingram will remain a healthy scratch, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. J.K. Dobbins and Edwards will continue to form a 1-2 punch in the backfield.
Ravens RB Gus Edwards (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bengals. He was added to the injury report and limited on Friday. Edwards’ absence would likely put RB Mark Ingram back in the fold — but also mean a boost in touches for RB J.K. Dobbins.
Ravens RB Gus Edwards (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. He put in a full practice on Friday, so the ankle shouldn’t be a concern. With 40 carries over the past 2 weeks, Edwards is a rock-solid RB2.
