Despite injuries to JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards, the Baltimore Ravens were still one of the best teams on the ground last season.
They finished third in rushing yards per game at 145.8, behind the Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts.
Baltimore brought in Devonta Freeman and Latavius Murray to hold the fort.
Likewise, Lamar Jackson was at his best before injuring his ankle.
A year later, uncertainty still hangs over the return of Dobbins and Edwards.
After all, ACL injuries take time to recover and it is difficult to force the problem even if it has already healed.
But the Ravens have found another running back who can help deliver rushing yards.
Breaking: RB Mike Davis signs with the #Crowsby source.

Mike Davis is a nice addition for the Ravens as he had over 1,000 scrimmage yards and eight touchdowns with the Carolina Panthers two seasons ago.
In 2021, the former South Carolina standout had nearly 800 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns with the Atlanta Falcons.
However, Cordarrelle Patterson outplayed him, prompting the Falcons to release him after one season.
Davis played for five teams in seven seasons, rushing for 2,034 yards and 14 touchdowns.
The crows will keep pounding the ground
Marquise Brown asked the Ravens for a trade because he didn’t like the way he was being used on offense.
It’s not his fault because Baltimore has an offense led by his backfield and Jackson.
Besides Davis, the Ravens drafted Tyler Badie in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
His addition gives Baltimore a running back trio of Badie, Davis and Justice Hill.
However, Davis and Hill will be the first casualties once Edwards or Dobbins return.
Therefore, Davis must make the most of their opportunity to score another contract elsewhere.
