Ravens Sign Melvin Gordon III To Practice Squad

Friday, January 19, 6:58 PM

The Baltimore Ravens re-signed running back Melvin Gordon III to their practice squad on Friday and also elevated wide receiver Dan Chisena and linebacker Josh Ross from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster for Saturday's Divisional Round playoff game against the Houston Texans. The Ravens waived Gordon earlier this week to make room for Dalvin Cook on the active, but he's now back in Baltimore as extra RB depth. Cook will serve as the No. 3 back behind Gus Edwards and Justice Hill this weekend, while Gordon will most likely be a healthy scratch. Chisena, 26, was cut from the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad just under two weeks ago and now will give Baltimore extra receiver depth for the Divisional Round.

Rachaad White News

Rachaad White Impressed By Bucky Irving

Thursday, June 20, 4:29 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected former Oregon running back Bucky Irving in the fourth round of the 2024 NFL Draft, just months after Rachaad White finished his breakout campaign that consisted of 1,539 yards from scrimmage and nine touchdowns on 336 touches. White was a rare workhorse in today's NFL, so Irving is likely to get work behind him in 2024. When speaking about Irving, White said the two could be a great one-two punch. "Bucky does a great job of, first thing, competing, and two, learning," White said. "They're all brilliant and they all want to understand the game more, and things like that. We talk a lot. We've got a good relationship. It's huge. I think he brings a playmaker [ability] and in this offense, the more playmakers, the better. It'll be huge. The one-two punch would be nice." It will be interesting to see how offensive coordinator Liam Cohen distributes the backfield touches, but White should remain the clear starter in Tampa Bay. Irving is a Day 3 rookie who had a disappointing pre-draft process, so expectations should be tempered.
