The Ravens are adding some experience to their defensive line ahead of Week 11.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team has signed defensive tackle Justin Ellis as a free agent.

Ellis spent the last five seasons with the Raiders. He had 119 tackles in 66 games for Oakland.

Ellis may not be their only addition to the defensive line. Jeff Zrebiec of TheAthletic.com reports they’ve been talking to veteran Domata Peko about a deal.

Peko spent the last two years with the Broncos. He spent 11 seasons with the Bengals before moving on to Denver.

Injuries are the impetus for the search for defensive line help. Michael Pierce and Daylon Mack are both ailing at the time being.

  1. This Jackson kid is going to get hurt bad. Sooner or later he will meet his match trying to out run a defender. The clock is ticking and it’s only a matter of time….

  2. One year wonder…once they are out of the playoffs in the 1st round, ‘Madden’ team will reach the kid, put it in the cover of Madden 21 and puff! its over…

    Once RGIII 2.0 goes down, it’s all over for the overrated, wagon jumping fan base Ravens.

    Hahaha Do those who make ridiculous statements like the above realize how simple it makes them look? Keep holding on to that narrative while the majority sees how much better this kid is getting every single game. Maybe figure skating is more your speed?

    Welcome to the internet, did you just get online today?

    He is right about Lamar Jackson, eventually the odds don’t not favor him. I recommend some confidence building classes on insecurity for your new found reality of internet trolls to help you grow into a man.

  6. Jelly is such a stud, Raiders probably shouldve kept him but his cap number was abit inflated for someone seeing the amount of snaps he was.

    Hes one of the best NT in the league im surprised it took him this long to get signed, when healthy hes a big ol boulder in the middle of the line.

  7. eoneil32,

    differing opinions now make you an internet newbie? Or perhaps being surprised by someone disagreeing makes you new to the internet> I like that.

    Btw, the correct discourse on this is “time will tell.” Never seen so many people hoping a player gets hurt to back up their internet mouth.

  8. I love jelly when he was a Raider but hiring him to fix your entry was just like I don’t know letting an alcoholic tend your bar.

  9. no team can say “Super Bowl Bound”…….YET!! I can see where Ravens fans are just a little over the top. After watching Flacco be absolutely stone faced and without any emotion for so long, it is refreshing to see a kid play for what looks like “The love of the game”. What intrigues me most and what is not being talked about, is, how the Ravens are not staying pat on the roster. After being embarrassed at home by the Browns, they brought in help that has propelled them to 5 straight wins. Cincinnati ran for what, 160+ total yards after Pierce went down and they bring in help. Jackson brings and breathe’s new air and the Ravens keep adjusting on their weaknesses. So far, it has worked. There is still a lot of football left but, it sure is fun to watch how this kid commands a game and how the fans, good or bad react to it. Me, I say Go kid!!!!! This season has been one of the best in years, for the whole league!!!!

  10. Defenses need to start pounding Lamar Jackson like they would any other running back, otherwise this trick pony will ruin the Super Bowl. It’s so boring to watch. You spend three hours hoping to see a couple of shake-n-bake plays. It’s like watching the NBA. I prefer better passing offenses with my football.

  11. Jellybean will be a great player for the ravens when healthy. He can anchor it down in the middle. I hope he does great. His only problem with the raiders is the fact that Reggie McKenzie drafted. Gruden is slowly getting rid of all of them.

  12. Here is the thing. Obviously at any moment he could tear and ACL or have a a high ankle injury. Those are part of the game if you are a statue and you run.

    But folks saying is imminent don’t watch his games. He mostly gets out of bounds and avoid contact. Every once in awhile on a long third-down he’s in the middle of the field and even then he’s not getting tackled at bad angles, and that’s intentional.

    He is an RG or Vick because he has more wiggle and is actually elusive apart from the straight-line speed. He also seems to understand angles and has been coached to avoid contact

    But even if he goes down the Ravens have kept two other quarterbacks who can replicate the skillset. They won’t suddenly not be able to execute the offense oh, it just may be slightly less efficient

    What real football fans would know is how good the Ravens o-line is playing and how it stayed healthy

    The real KO to the offense would be if Ronnie Stanley Orlando Brown or Marshal Yanda went down. Particularly at two of them went down there isn’t sufficient depth past James Hurst

  13. If you’ve watched the Ravens you’ve seen Lamar read defenses and survey the field, make quick decisions and throw darts to his receivers. He plays from the pistol and has an unbelieveably quick release. It is sheer fantasy to believe that Lamar’s game is all running. Against the Bengals he had about 65 yards running and 47 of those came on the one run with the spinning move. So believe what you want, Lamar’s the real deal.
