Ravens sign S Kai Nacua to practice squad After De’Lance Turner was promoted to the active 53-man roster earlier this week Authentic Za'Darius Smith Jersey , the Ravens had an opening on their practice squad. Over the weekend, Baltimore had filled that spot with safety Kai Nacua.Nacua spent training camp and the preseason with the Ravens, and he primarily played free safety. Nacua’s most memorable moment came in the final preseason game as he had a pick-six in the middle of the third quarter against Washington. Given Baltimore’s depth in the secondaAfbeeldingry, it is unlikely that Nacua will be promoted to the active roster barring an injury. However, he has an intriguing skill set that could entice the Ravens as he could serve as a true free safety. They seemingly have four ‘strong safeties,’ and if Nacua can develop into a quality starter, he could find a role in Don ‘Wink’ Martindale’s defense.“Kai [Nacua] is a good football player. He’s a little banged up, which in training camp that happens. He hasn’t said a word; he just comes into work and works every day. He’s done a nice job. He’s starting to gather the defense as well,” Martindale said during training camp, via the team’s official website.Standing at 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds, Nacua was a playmaker in college. In four years at BYU Authentic Matt Skura Jersey , he recorded 14 interceptions, 12 pass breakups, one forced fumble and 165 total tackles.Although he went undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft, he posted impressive numbers at his pro day. Nacua ran a 4.49-second 40-yard dash while posting a 39-inch vertical jump, per Draft Scout. Nacua eventually was signed to Cleveland’s practice squad following the 2017 preseason, but he was promoted to the 53-man roster before week one. He appeared in all 16 games for the Browns but was waived in April. This might not be the only move the Ravens make before week three as they reportedly hadten offensive linemen in for workouts on Saturday morning. Baltimore will try to bounce back against the Broncos after suffering a crushing 34-23 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night. The Baltimore Ravens have reportedly worked out five running backs on Friday afternoon, per ESPN’s Field Yates. Baltimore currently has three running backs on their active roster — Alex Collins, Javorius Allen, and Gus Edwards. They also have running back Mark Thompson on their practice squad. However, the Ravens’ running game has not gotten off to the start they had hoped. It is not entirely the running backs’ fault for the poor results in the running game but adding another tailback could give them a necessary spark. Jamaal Charles is the big name on this list as he was a playmaker in Kansas City for several years. He was one of the top running backs in the league with the Chiefs, but those days are behind him. Since being released from Kansas City http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/james-hurst-jersey-cheap , Charles has played for the Broncos and Jaguars. In 16 total games over the last two season, he has amounted 303 rushing yards and one touchdown. Charles was reportedly mulling over retiring after being released by the Jaguars, but that could change if the Ravens decided to kick the tires on him. Another interesting name on this list is former Iowa Hawkeye running back Akrum Wadley. Although he ultimately went undrafted, he was one of the more intriguing running backs in the 2018 NFL Draft class. It was a shock that Wadley did not get drafted, but he quickly landed on the Titans’ roster as an undrafted free agent. After spending the preseason in Tennessee, Wadley was cut and not re-signed to their practice squad. He has been out of football since then.In college, Wadley was a human highlight reel. Wadley’s ability to make defenders miss is his greatest trait. He does not go down easy, and he fights for every yard. Wadley can also make an impact in the passing game, as he showed at Iowa. In his final two seasons, Wadley combined for over 2,000 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns. He also added 64 receptions for 668 receiving yards and six touchdowns. He could be worthy of a practice squad spot if the Ravens can clear a spot for him. Charcandrick West started his NFL career with the Chiefs and was with them for four seasons before being cut in 2018. He then signed with the Jets but was cut before the regular season began. He is a serviceable running back Youth Za'Darius Smith Jersey , who could also make an impact in the passing game. Fitzgerald Toussaint is another veteran running back, and he actually started his NFL career in Baltimore. Toussaint was with the Ravens during the 2014 season. He served primarily as a special teams player. After being released by Baltimore in 2015, Toussaint spent the next few seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he was also a special teamer and a third-string running back. He was released by Pittsburgh before the start of the 2018 season.The fifth running back Baltimore worked out was former Wisconsin Badger Dare Ogunbowale. He went undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft but quickly signed with the Houston Texans. He has had stints with three different teams, including two times with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.The Ravens have several options if they choose to add a running back as they could sign any of these players or wait a couple of weeks until Kenneth Dixon can return to the field as one of their two injured reserve-designated to return players. According to the NFL rules, if a player is to be selected as one of two IR-DTR players, they must miss eight games before being activated.
