Ravens free-agent rankings: No. 12
By Jamison Hensley
Let's continue the ranking of the Baltimore Ravens' 13 unrestricted free agents:
No. 12: BERNARD SCOTT
Position: Running back
The good: Not much to say here. The former Cincinnati Bengals running back played two games after being signed in November. Scott totaled six touches (four carries, two receptions) for 24 yards.
The bad: He was inactive for six weeks. Scott was essentially an insurance policy that didn't need to be used because Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce didn't miss any games in the second half of the season even though they were banged up.
The bottom line: Why is Scott rated above Dallas Clark in the Ravens free-agent rankings? Because Scott has a chance of playing somewhere next season. The Ravens need depth at running back, but Scott was a band-aid for that position last season. The team has to improve the No. 3 spot, and it could do so in the draft.
