“I love good problems,” Roman said (video via team website). “I think I’ve learned over the years, if you got good problems, bring ’em this way. And I say that unabashedly. Talented, hardworking players that love football, bring ’em on….We’ll find ways to make it work, for sure. To have that kind of backfield is a blessing.”
The Ravens bolstered their backfield in April by selecting Ohio State’s J.K. Dobbins in the second round. He’ll join Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, and Mark Ingram, who delivered his third 1,000-yard season in 2019. The 30-year-old averaged 4.5 yards per carry across eight seasons with the Saints, he took things to a new level last year offense, setting a new career watermark with 5.0 ypc. This year, he’ll look to continue the upward trend while teaching the younger Dobbins the finer points of pass blocking.
Other RB-needy teams will have to look elsewhere for help, perhaps by getting in touch with Devonta Freeman, who remains available after rejecting a one-year, $3MM deal from the Seahawks.
