Ravens make a change at linebacker

The Ravens offense has been a big problem through the first six weeks of the season, but a Tuesday roster move addressed the other side of the ball.

The Ravens announced that they have released linebacker Jonathan Freeny and replaced him on the roster with Steven Johnson. Freeny joined the team in late September after defensive end Brent Urban was placed on injured reserve. He had two tackles in three appearances with the team.

Johnson played six games with the Steelers last year and played in one early this season while bouncing on and off the roster in Pittsburgh. He spent the first three years of his career with the Broncos and spent the 2015 season with the Titans.

Freeny saw all of his work on special teams and that will likely be Johnson’s main focus in Baltimore as well.

  1. What a mess Baltimore is now. 7-9 would look good at this point.

    Flacco’s 20 mil per and years of poor drafts by Ozzie have finally come home to roost. You just have to wonder how long he and Harbaugh will hold onto their jobs, fading away slowly after their SB season because Kaepernick choked at the goal line.

    Ravens fan here, i would normally be offended, but not this year.

  3. CJ Mosley + Steven Johnson < Ryan Shazier

    Still desperately grasping at straws trying to recover from the wrong LB pick.

  4. So Freeny was why Flacco bounced passes off his receivers chest! Or, most time the receivers can’t get open! Must be that Freeny was responsible for the kneeling fiasco in London!

  5. Told my wife when they paid Flacco all that money, set the Ravens back 10 years and I stand by that prediction. The pass at the end of regulation confirms that Flacco is NOT ELITE. Cant even see the left side of the field, inaccurate beyond comprehension. That greed hurt us, PERIOD. 26 mill for an average at best QB, heads should roll.

  6. Its time to cut bait with Harbs and the GM. Moves like this are not improving the team, this season is over for us Raven fans. The offense is the problem and this group has had its chance, bad drafts, bad free agents, spending money on the wrong players (Flacco) has put us in a bad situation. If that means rebuilding, okay, at least us Raven fans know not to expect much.

    The prediction only stands because Ozzie didn’t build a team around Joe. There are several other teams that pay their QB comparable or more than Joe and have successful offenses with a similar caliber QB. Joe has his faults, but the biggest fault is not having a system or team around him that works for him. Heck it wouldn’t work for many. FIRE OZZIE, HE FAILED.
