Here’s where former Ravens have ended up after NFL offseason moves (hint: check the AFC East)

With most offseason business done, NFL teams can shift their attention toward when — or if — training camps and the regular season will begin as sports leagues around the world deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

Though a few big-name free agents still linger — including a pair of former No. 1 overall draft picks in edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney and quarterback Cam Newton — most players have found new homes.

With that in mind, here’s a look at where former Ravens will be playing in 2020:

The Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XLVII, Flacco, an Audubon, New Jersey, native recently signed a one-year deal worth up to $4.5 million with the New York Jets. The 35-year-old spent one season with the Denver Broncos after being traded by the Ravens for a fourth-round pick, throwing for 1,822 yards with six touchdowns and five interceptions in eight starts as the Broncos went 2-6. He was placed on injured reserve halfway through the season because of the herniated disk, giving way to rookie Drew Lock, and reportedly had neck surgery this offseason. He’ll back up 2018 first-round pick Sam Darnold.

The 17th overall selection in the 2014 NFL draft, Mosley was a four-time Pro Bowl selection in five seasons with the Ravens before signing with the Jets last offseason on a five-year, $85 million deal with $51 million guaranteed, a record for an inside linebacker. He missed nearly the entire 2019 season after suffering a groin injury in his first game with New York.

He signed a one-year, $6.5 million deal ($6 million guaranteed) with the Jets this offseason.

Kicker Kaare Vedvik: Buffalo Bills

As a kicker and punter, Vedvik impressed enough in the 2019 preseason for the Ravens to acquire a 2020 fifth-round pick (used to select Texas Tech defensive tackle Broderick Washington Jr.) from the Vikings in exchange for the Norwegian. But he failed to make Minnesota’s 53-man roster and spent time with the Jets and Bengals before signing a two-year, $1.4 million reserve/future deal with the Bills in January.

After three seasons in Detroit and two in Arizona, Bynes returned to the Ravens on a midseason free-agent deal in 2019, playing 12 games (seven starts). He signed a one-year, $1.65 million deal this offseason with the Bengals.

Drafted in the fourth round in 2016 out of Michigan, Henry didn’t play his rookie season, which ended on injured reserve. He recorded 33 tackles, 3½ sacks and six tackles for loss and recovered two fumbles in 2017, but battled injuries again the following season, when he was limited to just three games. The Ravens cut him at the start of the 2019 season, and he signed a one-year, $860,000 reserve/future deal with the 49ers in January.

After going undrafted out of Purdue in 2015, Mostert spent time with four teams during his rookie season, including seven games with the Ravens, mostly as a kick returner.

He signed a three-year, $8.7 million deal ($3 million guaranteed) with the 49ers in 2019 and rushed for 772 yards and eight touchdowns last season.
