As the Ravens returned to Owings Mills for the start of their offseason workout program Monday, some took care of business.

Inside linebacker Patrick Onwuasor signed his restricted-free-agent tender, the team announced. Onwuasor, who will make $3.095 million under the tender, has started 25 games over the past two seasons and had 59 tackles, 5½ sacks and an interception last season.


Ravens mock draft: Projecting all eight of the team's picks, with some risky ones along the way

The Ravens have two, maybe three pressing needs on their roster and only one pick in the first 84 selections in the NFL draft. Here's how their three days could play out.

Running back Gus Edwards, center Matt Skura, offensive tackle-guard Jermaine Eluemunor and running back De'Lance Turner also signed their exclusive-rights free-agent tenders.

Edwards led the team in rushing as an undrafted rookie, finishing with 718 yards and 5.2 yards per carry. Skura started 16 games at center in 2018 after starting 12 games at right guard as a rookie. Eluemunor and Turner appeared in nine and four games last year, respectively.

Preston: Ravens' Patrick Onwuasor ready to step into new role with C.J. Mosley, Terrell Suggs gone

Linebacker Patrick Onwuasor, 26, appears ready to accept the mantle of leader and middle linebacker on the Ravens defense.

Still unsigned is Michael Pierce. The Ravens placed a second-round restricted-free-agent tender on their standout defensive tackle, meaning that if another team extends an offer sheet to Pierce, they have the chance to match it. If the Ravens decide not to, they would receive a second-round pick from Pierce’s new team. Friday is the deadline for restricted free agents to sign an offer sheet.

Both Pierce and Onwuasor are set to become unrestricted free agents in 2020 along with Jimmy Smith, Justin Tucker and Matthew Judon, among others.
