Running back Corey Clement has agreed to terms on a deal with the Ravens, his agent confirmed Monday night, filling out the team’s depth at an injury-depleted position ahead of training camp. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Top running backs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, who missed all of last season with knee injuries, will start training camp this week on the physically-unable-to-perform list. With the arrival of Clement and the departure of Ricky Person Jr., who left camp last week after reporting with his fellow rookies, the Ravens should have five healthy options for Wednesday’s first full-team practice.
Veteran Mike Davis and rookie Tyler Badie featured prominently in the Ravens’ offseason workouts. Justice Hill, who missed all of last season with a torn Achilles tendon, was healthy enough to participate. Nate McCrary, who had two carries last season with the Ravens, is also in the mix. Team officials are hopeful that Dobbins and Edwards, who can return to practice when they’re cleared, will be ready for their Sept. 11 season opener.
Clement, 27, had 33 carries for 140 yards (4.2 per attempt) and six catches for 29 yards and a touchdown in 17 games last season with the Dallas Cowboys. He spent his first four years with the Philadelphia Eagles, starring in their Super Bowl LII victory over the New England Patriots.
In another move Monday, the Ravens converted $9 million of cornerback Marlon Humphrey’s $10 million base salary for 2022 into a signing bonus, creating $7.2 million in cap space, according to ESPN. The team entered this week with less than $1 million available.
