Petrak believes there’s a “50-50” chance of Mayfield starting Week 1, but it’s much more likely he’ll take over for Taylor midseason.
Petrak notes that DB Briean Boddy-Calhoun‘s future with the team is uncertain since the Browns signed several defensive backs this offseason.
Ravens free agent OL Crockett Gilmore underwent another knee surgery this offseason, which may explain why he has yet to sign with a team, according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.
Zrebiec adds that the Ravens still seem inclined to give Gillmore a look along the offensive line, but his signing would hinge on his ability to pass a physical and prove he’s healthy again.
Zrebiec believes the Ravens should explore the possibility of trading for Lions RBAmeer Abdullah if he ends up on the trading block this summer and Detroit is willing to part with him for a Day 3 draft pick.
Zrebiec would be surprised if the Ravens allowed LB C.J. Mosley to play out the final year of his contract and come close to testing the free agent market.
