Brian Baldinger: Patrick Onwuasor, Chris Board Are ‘Crazy Good’
There was some consternation among Ravens fans over the team’s inside linebackers after four-time Pro Bowler C.J. Mosley left in free agency this offseason. However, NFL Network’s Brian Baldinger says fans should be excited, not exasperated, about the unit.
Baldinger, who attended Monday’s Ravens training camp practice, was speaking specifically about Patrick “Peanut” Onwuasor, who is moving from weakside linebacker into the middle linebacker position that had been occupied by Mosley, and Chris Board, who is competing with Kenny Young at weakside linebacker.
Mosley, who was selected by the Ravens in the first round in 2014, signed a five-year, $85 million contract with the New York Jets. Onwuasor, entering his fourth season, and Board, entering his second, are both undrafted free agents.
“Nobody is lining up two undrafted free agents,” Baldinger said in his “Baldy’s Breakdowns” on Twitter. “These undrafted guys in Baltimore are crazy good. Crazy good. We’ve got to start talking about them — a lot.”
