The Baltimore Ravens announced the signing of inside linebacker, Nicholas Grigsby, on Wednesday. Grigsby is a former undrafted free agent and member of the 2016 draft class. After going unpicked, Grigsby signed with the Rams, where he spent most of his time on the offseason roster and on the practice squad. Grigsby was elevated to the 53-man roster in November of 2016 but was waived the following September.
After leaving the Rams, Grigsby found a new, yet temporary home in Baltimore. The Ravens signed Grigsby to the practice squad after growing fond of him in the preseason. Grigsby’s time in Baltimore would be short-lived, however, as he would receive an offer to play for Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. He appeared in five games and recorded five tackles in 2017.
Grigsby was released by the Patriots in November of 2018. After leaving New England, he signed with the Detriot Lions practice squad. He was promoted to the active roster in November of 2018 but was released on February 2019.
The Baltimore Ravens are thin at inside linebacker after the departure of Pro Bowler C.J. Mosley, so Grigsby will have a chance to compete for a roster spot during his second stint in Charm City.
The Baltimore Ravens also hosted Pro Bowl special teams player, Brynden Trawick, but elected not to sign the special teams player and safety.
