Ravens sign Fitzgerald Toussaint


The Ravens are bringing in a rookie running back from one of college football’s storied programs.

Fitzgerald Toussaint, who rushed for 2,288 yards and 27 touchdowns in four seasons with the University of Michigan, has signed with Baltimore, the club announced on its website Thursday.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the 5-foot-10, 200-pound Toussaint tried out for Baltimore at its rookie minicamp.

The addition of the 24-year-old Toussaint gives the Ravens seven running backs on their roster.

With Toussaint arriving, the Ravens waived-injured linebacker Ryan Jones, an undrafted free agent from Montana Tech, according to the NFL’s Thursday transactions.

    With all the RB issues we have, he seems like a LOCK to make the roster.

    Give him a week to break into the…….police blotter.

    Stud at Michigan. Let’s see if he can translate it to the NFL….. With Ray Rice’s situation, and Bernard Pierce’s nightclub incident, I think this kid has a better chance then most people would think. Cierre Wood will be a baller too. Go Eagles btw!

    Surprisingly enough, Fitz is not of Irish-French descent.

    Good signing but everyone knows the Steelers have a lock on winning the Super Bowl this year.

    Cierre wood needs a shot. Rice needs to go.

    Shortly after the signing Mr. Toussaint was arrested for felony assault on a female pedestrian at batteries plus for no particular reason. Coach Harbaugh is quoted as saying, “welcome to the team!”

    Keep it classy there classyjack. Rice deserves the grief he’ll get but Toussaint doesn’t and neither does the coach.

    After hearing about this Shamarko is glad he rides the pine, Jarvis started forgetting his detail work so he could ride the pine some more, and Shazier’s hamstring started acting up.

    He’s a 24 yr old rookie? How does a 6th yr senior even get eligibility? Or maybe he flunked 2nd grade.

    Wasn’t Weeden like a 30 year old rookie?

    Hahahaha. That’s even worse.

    Congrats Fitz! All your hard work is paying off! BTW he redshirted and had a medical redshirt which is why he had 6 years of eligibility.
