The Ravens aren’t waiting around to see how the offseason develops to start signing picks.

The team just announced that fifth-rounder Broderick Washington had signed his rookie deal, making him the first pick from this year’s class to sign.

The defensive tackle from Texas Tech must have found a way to get a physical passed, despite the fact team facilities are closed and team doctors can’t conduct physicals.

That’s led to a slower pace of play when it comes to rookie deals. We’ll see if it becomes a trend.

The Ravens also announced deals with six more undrafted rookies: Defensive back Josh Nurse, defensive end Marcus Willoughby, wide receiver Jaylon Moore, cornerback Khalil Dorsey, safety Nigel Warrior, and tight end Eli Wolf.

  1. My Baltimore Ravens, as usual, leading the way. Establishing the trend.

  2. Rooting for safety Nigel Warrior to make the team. That’s a name that belongs in the NFL.
