Bruton joined the Redskins this past offseason on a three-year, $9MM deal. In four starts with his new team, the defensive back compiled 28 tackles, one sack, and two passes defended. Bruton was placed on the injured reserve in early October with a concussion, and he was waived from the team’s reserved/injured list last week. As our own Zach Links pointed out, the safety ultimately collected $3.4MM for his four starts in Washington.
At only 29-years-old, Bruton should have plenty left in the tank, and the former fourth-rounder is less than a year removed from a career season. In 2015, the safety set career-highs in tackles (49), sacks (one), passes defended (seven), and interceptions (two). In seven years with Denver, Bruton only missed eight regular season games.
It’s uncertain how Bruton would fit on the Ravens, as the team is currently rostering five safeties. Eric Weddle and Lardarius Webb are entrenched as the team’s starters, and Matt Elam, Anthony Levine, and Marqueston Huff are fine backups. For what it’s worth, the Ravens do have four defensive backs on the injured reserve in Kyle Arrington, Sheldon Price, Jumal Rolle, and Kendrick Lewis.
