2021 Offseason

The Baltimore Ravens are coming off a pretty good season going 11-5 and taking 2nd Place in the AFC North. They ended up clinching a Wildcard spot late in the season. Baltimore defeated the Titans 20-13 in the 1st Wildcard round. However the Buffalo Bills took the Ravens apart in the Divisional round at a final score of 17-3 Bills. Overall it was a good season for the Ravens. They will be looking to improve for next year and reach the playoffs again. Baltimore has a good franchise right now so they will be willing to go all out for a Super Bowl. This Offseason so far the Ravens have been quiet. They have re-signed CB Devontae Harris to a Reserve contract and that is pretty much it. It is very early in the offseason and there has not been many big pieces moved yet throughout the league. The Ravens will most likely be decently aggressive this offseason to try and improve their team while they are current top contenders. The Ravens waived RB Mark Ingram II earlier this offseason making him a free agent. Ingram is a 3-time Pro Bowler who has played his career with New Orleans and Baltimore. Also, Orlando Brown Jr. has reportedly requested a trade from the Baltimore Ravens. This season was Brown’s 3rd NFL season in which he recorded his 2nd selection as a Pro-Bowler.

So keep an eye on the Ravens and we will have to see what they want to do this offseason.

2021 Offseason:

Congratulations to Tom Brady and the Buccaneers on their Super Bowl LV win against the KC Chiefs. Tom brady wins his 7th Super Bowl at a final score of 31-9. That means that the NFL offseason has officially started. What to keep an eye on for the Browns this offseason. The Browns are coming off a unbelievable season as they resulted 11-5 and clinched a playoff spot. They beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wildcard game at a final score of 48-37. The Browns then went to Kansas City for the Divisional Round which resulted in a tough loss for Cleveland at a score of 22-17. Although the loss was disappointing to Browns fans, this season proved that the Browns have what it takes to contend and win a Super Bowl. Adding a few big pieces this offseason could seal the Browns holes and make them even bigger contenders than they were in the 2020-2021 season. The Browns need to booster their defense this offseason and the future will keep getting brighter for a young and talented Browns team. So keep an eye out on the Browns this offseason. Go Browns!
