Ravens free agent defensive lineman Brent Urban will visit the Titans on Tuesday, a source tells ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter (on Twitter). Urban missed the bulk of the 2017 season thanks to a Lisfranc injury, but he bounced back in 2018 and started in all 16 of Baltimore’s games.
Urban’s 0.5 sacks and 27 tackles didn’t jump off the page in 2018, but he did grade out as Pro Football Focus’ No. 49 ranked interior defender thanks to his solid run defense. The incumbent Ravens haven’t closed the door to bringing him back, but we haven’t heard much on that front since Eric DeCosta spoke on the matter late last month.
“Right player, right price,” DeCosta said of Urban. “The market is a fluid process, and we’re going to try and build the best def. we can. I certainly think Brent is a good player. I’m surprised that he hasn’t signed with another team.”
If Urban does not return to Baltimore, he’ll be the fifth defensive starter to leave the club, following safety Eric Weddle and linebackers C.J. Mosley, Za’Darius Smith, and Terrell Suggs out the door.
