Ravens sign Bernard Scott

The Ravens had Week Eight off and they’ll return for Week Nine with a new member of their backfield.

Baltimore announced that they have signed former Bengal Bernard Scott as a free agent, filling the roster spot that was opened when tackle Bryant McKinnie was traded to the Dolphins. Scott tore his ACL early last season and was released by the Bengals from their PUP list in September.

Scott’s arrival gives the Ravens some insurance in the event that Bernard Pierce’s hamstring injury keeps him out of the lineup in Week Nine or beyond. Pierce has played in every game this season, but didn’t practice during the Ravens’ abbreviated week of work before scattering for the bye.

Starting running back Ray Rice has also been bothered by a hip injury for several weeks, but, as mentioned in the Monday morning one-liners, he said this weekend that he’s feeling better and that he thinks the rest of the season will bring better results.

    Ravens are sifting through free agency trash to try to match the superior Bengals

    He will be released by November 12, following Cincinnati’s game with Baltimore. This is a classic teach us what you know about the playbook signing.

    I like the signing but if our running scheme & o-line dont get better, we could have Barry Sanders back there and he wouldnt get any yards……… Oh wait, Barry would. But ANYbody else won’t!!

    They’re in the same division. I doubt there are things he could tell them they don’t already know. In fact, Ravens probably know things he doesn’t. Likewise I would expect Bengals know quite a bit too.

    All this tells me is Billy Bajema won’t be resigned. Poor guy.

    This is absolutely a “Hey what would they do in this situation?” Signing that’s all. If he actually sees the field he WILL get hurt. The Ravens are scrambling in anyway to keep pace with the Bengals who in my book had one of the most dominating victories in the NFL this season. Are the Jets that bad, or are the Bengals that good? Ask the Patriots.

    If I were a Steeler fan this week, I would keep my trap shut.

    I find it kind of hard to believe that Cedric Benson’s name hasn’t been brought up in any of the discussions regarding teams that need a RB.

    It just might be the Bengals year to win the division. They are due. They fleeced the Raiders on the Carson Palmer trade, and have used the draft picks wisely. IMO, AJ Green is the best WR in the AFC. Their TE tandem is near the top of the list. They have a solid D, OL and the law firm is running the ball really well. I think Dalton is an above average QB. On paper – they are the best team in the AFC North if they stay healthy.

    At the beginning of the year, I thought this was their division to lose with their players young and reaching their prime. Baltimore announced they were going into reload mode at the end of last year, Cleveland is Cleveland and half of Pittsburgh is eligible for AARP cards.

    Well then mkoogs, we’ll all hope you become a Steeler fan this week.

    And I wouldn’t dismiss this signing, he may well be the best back on that roster, now that all the sacrificial check-downs are catching up with Rice’s body.

    I figured out why you homers accept such poor QB play – your “average” benchmark is Kyle Boller and Jeff Blake.

    Honesty moment: your trash talk isn’t funny when your team is even worse than theirs.

    Your QB has 8 tds/7 Ints and has lost 4 fumbles this year so far Crown; he also counts 14 Mil against the cap and that’s after restructuring it; I mean….shut up. Your crap o-line is catching up with Ben’s body too.

  16. lovefootball4life says: Oct 28, 2013 4:39 PM

    Hey Crown, Flacco and Ben are scary close statistically right now so for you to say Flacco has “poor QB play” means the mighty Ben is really bad.

  17. scoobies05 says: Oct 28, 2013 6:47 PM

    yeah crown…what those guys said

  18. doctorrustbelt says: Oct 28, 2013 8:11 PM

    LOL!!!

    Look at the 3-4 “ELITE” joe flacco led ravens signing the Bengals leftovers.

    LOL!!!

  19. crownofthehelmet says: Oct 28, 2013 8:11 PM

    Come on boys, you know Ben’s play as of late has no bearing on you fans’ low QB standards. Not to mention, Ben’s gotta win games instead of game-manage. Forced int’s are much different than errant, inaccurate throws.

  20. timsizzle83 says: Oct 28, 2013 9:02 PM

    ^^^ delusional much? The only reason Ben got a rep as s winner is because of the Steelers d, which is still decent. Without it you guys wouldn’t of won anything on the last 8 yrs.

    Good luck to the Ravens and their fans this week. I am hoping for a good game. After last week I just don’t know what team will show up. It was like two different teams in the first half and the second.
    I do think the Steeler trolls should lay low after last week. If they really are God’s team what happened, did he take the day off?

    How’s that working out for him?

    (that one was almost too easy)

    Good thing the Ravens had the week off. Their backs must be awfully tired from carrying Flacco all the time.

  24. guitarkevin says: Oct 30, 2013 9:18 AM

    LOL at the Bengals and Steelers fans with their trash talking.

    Bengals fans know they’ll choke in the playoffs, so they have to get their shots in now before that ship sails.
    Steelers fans are happy to talk trash about anybody the way their season is going.

    Don’t worry though. The Ravens aren’t out of the mix yet. Only one game behind the wild card spot and we have yet to play a good game.

    In other words, when we start playing well, we’ll take over a playoff spot and probably the division.
