Ravens want to add another running back-- Mon Jan 9 10:30 am --
Looking for more big plays
Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh believes Kenneth Dixon and Terrance West proved themselves this past season. He feels those running backs made names for themselves.
"We need another back," Harbaugh said. "What type of back that is? I think we’re talking about it. We have a pretty good idea of the type of back we want to add."(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:The Ravens are displeased with their running game the past two seasons and apparently Dixon didn't show enough this season to make them comfortable making him their franchise running back. Harbaugh did mention Buck Allen who was inactive the second half of the season. The Ravens could be looking to add a back in this year's draft.
Kenneth Dixon likely to see more work-- Mon Oct 24 6:10 pm --
Rookie limited to 16 yards on nine touches in first three games
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he would like to see rookie RB Kenneth Dixon play more. He's had limited carries since coming back from sprained knee.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Dixon saw three and two carries, respectively, over Weeks 5 and 6 before getting one Sunday, so it is anyone's guess as to how much of a bump Harbaugh is expecting. Despite an eight-carry, 10-yard effort from Terrance West in Week 7, he hasn't really given the Ravens much reason to diminish his workload. Still, don't be surprised if Baltimore moves forward with something approaching a 60/40 split with Dixon on the lesser end of the equation.
