Cornerback Tavon Young can’t help the Ravens on the field after tearing his ACL in September, but he was able to help them get some more cap space.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that Young has reworked his contract with the team. He converted $2.514 million of his base salary into a bonus in a move that provided cap room for the Ravens.

Young also agreed to drop his $5.5 million base salary for the 2021 season to $2.65 million. The original figure was not guaranteed, but the new salary is guaranteed and that should help provide a space for Young on the roster once he’s healthy.

Staying healthy has been an issue for Young. He also tore his ACL in the 2017 offseason and missed all of the 2019 season with a neck injury.

  1. Sounds like the ravens are making room for a signing. I wonder who??? Tavon is Best slot corner and it’s not even close. He is ultra competitive and feisty. However, his bad luck with injuries is well documented. Unfortunately, in this league, you best ability is availability and if you are not on the field, you will be gone. Best wishes for Tavon to make a full and complete recovery. God does not make mistakes!!!

  2. One of the rookie CBs got hurt in Indy and they are going to lose him for a few weeks, they need a backup
