After losing C.J. Mosley, Terrell Suggs and Za’Darius Smith during free agency, the Ravens may add a versatile veteran linebacker to the roster.
Free agent linebacker Vincent Rey visited and worked out for the Ravens on Tuesday, per ESPN’s Jamison Hensley
Rey has spent his entire nine-year career with the Cincinnati Bengals, playing both inside and outside linebacker as well as special teams. His versatility and experience could be valuable for the Ravens, who are expecting young inside linebackers Kenny Young and Chris Board to play larger roles this season next to starting linebacker Patrick Onwuasor.
The Ravens know Rey well as a long-time AFC North rival. In a 2013 game in Baltimore, Rey recorded 15 tackles, three sacks, three passes defensed and an interception.
An undrafted free agent from Duke, the 31-year-old Rey has only missed two games over the past eight seasons. He has 497 tackles, six sacks, five interceptions and a forced fumble over his career.
