AFC North Notes: Ravens, Mosley, Steelers

Here’s a quick look at the AFC North:

  • The Jets landed linebacker C.J. Mosley in free agency, but the Ravens went as high as $14MM/year to keep him in Baltimore, according to Albert Breer of The MMQB (Twitter link). Mosley’s new Jets deal, meanwhile, will pay him an average of $17MM/year with $51MM guaranteed.
  • The Steelers restructured the contract of inside linebacker Vince Williams, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets. The move clears $2.8MM in 2019 cap space for Pittsburgh, but Williams is still due $5.1MM for the coming year. Just last summer, Williams re-upped with the Steelers on a three-year add-on worth upwards of $20MM. In 2018, Williams finished out with 4.5 sacks, 76 tackles, and one interception.
  • Former Jaguars tight end James O’Shaughnessy visited the Steelers this week, as Field Yates of ESPN.com tweets. The Steelers recently lost Jesse James in free agency, so O’Shaughnessy could be a depth option behind starter Vance McDonald. O’Shaughnessy, 27, set new career highs with 24 catches for 214 yards last season. He still only has one touchdown catch in his four NFL seasons, a 2017 TD against the 49ers.

      Not me. I want Parris Campbell at 20..

      Moncrief is not the answer.

      Steelers have Vance, they can sign anyone to be a blocking TE2..

    Wanted Devin Bush but it looks like Barron was signed to play in the middle.

      The Barron signing shouldn’t change anything. It was a cheap contract for effectively one year. If Bush is there, the Steelers should absolutely take him.

        I disagree.

        ILB will be Barron/Fort next to Vince. Have Bostic on roster for now too.. think they’ll hold off on ilb early this year.

        Barron can cover.. I think people are overrating the value of a ilb in a 3-4..
        just because we had one of the best (shazier) doesn’t mean we need to replace him with elite talent.. just someone who can cover a little and tackle.. not sure what they see in bostic tho.

      Could just move on from one of Williams and Barron later on or have Barron play as a hybrid type. It would also allow them to ease bush in.
