Ravens sign veteran OLB Steven Means after minicamp tryout – The Denver Post


The Ravens have signed veteran outside linebacker Steven Means, the team announced Friday.

Means, 31, played well in his tryout at the team’s mandatory minicamp this week. Because of injuries, the Ravens ended minicamp Thursday with Daelin Hayes and Vince Biegel earning the most repetitions among veterans at the position. Jaylon Ferguson and David Ojabo were limited, while 2021 sack leader Tyus Bowser and second-round pick David Ojabo are still returning from Achilles tendon injuries.

The 6-foot-3, 263-pound Means spent the past three seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, starting 14 games in 2021 and finishing with 43 tackles (two for a loss), two quarterback hits and no sacks.

Means started his career in 2013 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a fifth-round pick out of Buffalo. He played game with the Ravens in 2014, when he spent most of the season on the team’s practice squad. The Ravens released Means before the 2015 season, and he went on to play for the Philadelphia Eagles and Falcons.

Over his career, Means has appeared in 64 games and made 29 starts, with six sacks, 107 tackles (10 for loss), three forced fumbles and 13 quarterback hits.
