Sports columnist Mike Preston gives his instant analysis of the Ravens' 40-25 loss to the Cleveland Browns at M&T Bank Stadium.
The Ravens continue to retool a defense that has allowed 500 yards in back-to-back games, signing inside linebacker Josh Bynes, the team announced Wednesday.
A former Raven who was a part of their 2012 Super Bowl team, Bynes made the game-sealing tackle in Super Bowl XLVII. The Ravens signed Bynes as an undrafted free agent in 2011 and he spent his first three NFL seasons with them. He contributed primarily on special teams but started six games in 2013.
Bynes, 30, follows L.J. Fort, who was signed Monday, as the second inside linebacker to join this week. Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he expects Fort to “be right in the mix on defense and special teams.”
The Ravens entered the season with four inside linebackers but on Saturday, the team placed Otaro Alaka on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.
