Ravens Add RB Terrance West To Practice Squad


Running back Terrance West is returning to Baltimore.

The Ravens have signed the Baltimore native and former Towson star to their practice squad. To make room for West, the Ravens cut defensive end Nordly Capi.

West also posted on Instagram that is he joining the Ravens.

"From pop warner to high school to college and now the pro's," West wrote. "God took me around the world to bang me up so I could appreciate it more being home. Ima give you guys my all. I love my city. Dreams into reality!! Locked in and focus. #BlessedToBeA #RAVEN"

The 24-year-old running back is in just his second NFL season after getting selected by the Cleveland Browns in the third round of the NFL Draft last year. The Browns traded West to the Titans at the end of this year's training camp, and he then played two games with Tennessee before getting cut last week.

He has 187 carries for 724 yards and four touchdowns in his young career.

The start of West's professional career hasn't been smooth sailing, but he has raw talent. Baltimore fans likely remember him as a touchdown machine at Towson, where he rushed for 4,854 yards and 84 touchdowns. 

He led Towson to a national title game before opting to forgo his senior year and enter the draft.

There were reports around the draft that the Ravens had their eye on West. They wanted to add a running back – they ended up taking Lorenzo Taliaferro in the fourth round – and the Browns traded ahead of them to select West in the third round.

West now ends up in Baltimore less than two years later as a player with a high ceiling. He has several options ahead of him on the roster – the Ravens already have running back Justin Forsett, Buck Allen and Raheem Mostert on the 53-man squad – but West will have a chance to develop on the practice squad.
