Ravens Re-Sign Four ERFAs, Including RB Gus Edwards


According to Pro Football Talk, the Ravens re-signed exclusive rights free agent RB Gus Edwards

Baltimore also announced it re-signed RB DeLance Turner, OL Matt Skura and OL Jermaine Eluemunor, all exclusive rights free agents. 

The Ravens tendered Edwards earlier this offseason, so this just makes it official. He will compete with free-agent signing Mark Ingram for the No. 1 RB role. 

Edwards, 24, wound up signing on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Rutgers back in May, 2018. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract with the Ravens, but was unfortunately waived coming out of the preseason.

The Ravens signed Edwards to their practice squad after he cleared waivers the following day. He was promoted to the active roster in October and was starting for the Ravens by the end of the season. 

In 2018, Edwards played in 11 games for the Ravens and rushed 137 times for 718 yards (5.2 YPC) and two touchdowns. He also caught two passes for 20 yards. Pro Football Focus rated Edwards as the No. 14 running back out of 62 qualifying players. 

Skura, 26, wound up signing on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Duke back in 2016. He was waived coming out of the preseason and later signed to the team’s practice squad before returning to Baltimore on a future/reserve contract for 2017.

The Ravens elected to waive him as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players, but signed him to their practice squad. Skura earned a call back up to the active roster and started 12 games in 2017. 

In 2018, Skura started all 16 games for the Ravens at center. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 23 center out of 38 qualifying players. 

Eluemunor, 22, was selected by the Ravens in the fifth-round out of Texas A&M in 2017. He signed a four-year, $2.66 million contract that included a $267,164 signing bonus but was waived coming out of the 2018 preseason.

Eluemunor re-signed with the Ravens to their practice squad and was later promoted to the active roster. 

In 2018, Eluemunor appeared in nine games for the Ravens, starting one.
