Ravens re-sign cornerback Kevon Seymour to one-year deal

The Ravens have re-signed cornerback and special teams contributor Kevon Seymour to a one-year deal, the team announced Monday. Terms of the contract were not announced.

Seymour, 28, was set to be a free agent this offseason. He appeared in nine games this season and started two in a Ravens secondary depleted by injuries and the coronavirus. Seymour finished with 25 tackles (three for loss), one pass defended and a sack on Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the regular-season finale. In coverage, he allowed 24 completions on 30 targets for 279 yards and two touchdowns (127.6 passer rating), according to Pro Football Reference.

Seymour joined the Ravens’ practice squad in September. He played in four games and earned just nine defensive snaps over the season’s first 13 weeks, but his role expanded as cornerbacks Marlon Humphrey, Jimmy Smith, Chris Westry, Tavon Young and Anthony Averett were sidelined or limited by injuries. Seymour played at least 69% of the defensive snaps over the Ravens’ final four games. He also played at least nine special teams snaps in every appearance this season.

Seymour’s re-signing is the first move at cornerback in an offseason that could reshape the depth chart in Baltimore. Humphrey, Young and Marcus Peters are under contract through next season, though Young could be a salary cap casualty. Averett and Smith are both pending free agents, and Chris Westry is a restricted free agent.
