The Baltimore Ravens are set to host the Washington Redskins in their preseason finale Cheap C.J. Mosley Jersey , but the bigger storyline is the September 1st cutdown deadline looming. The Ravens will have several difficult decisions to make, but none bigger than Robert Griffin III, who is competing to be the team’s third quarterback. Griffin III has had a solid preseason, and if not for a couple of drops, his stat line would be more impressive. Regardless, many have speculated that Baltimore could trade him as carrying three quarterbacks may not be the most logical move. With Brett Hundley and Teddy Bridgewater both being traded this week, Griffin III’s value has increased as he is now, arguably, the best backup quarterback available. According to Jason La Canfora, there is ‘a lot of chatter going on between teams regarding’ several backup quarterbacks.The Ravens recently picked up a sixth-round pick as they traded Kamalei Correa to the Tennessee Titans, and they may not be done. Baltimore will have the next two days to decide what to do with Robert Griffin III, but they will have three questions to answer:Do they feel comfortable with Lamar Jackson as the only other quarterback on the 53-man roster?Are they getting good value in return for Griffin III?Would keeping Griffin III be better than cutting/trading him? If the Ravens were to get rid of him Womens Justin Tucker Jersey , they would be able to keep another player at a different position — 7th receiver, extra linebacker, or extra defensive line help — but is it worth it?Head coach John Harbaugh has acknowledged on several occasions that Griffin III has not made their decision any easier because of his attitude, work ethic, and most importantly, his performance on the field. “There’s no question that the best quarterback thing to do would be to keep Robert Griffin. He’s proven it. He’s played exceptionally well, and it makes our team better. No matter who the ‘two’ is, who the ‘three’ is, who’s active, who’s not active in a game, you want to keep your good players, and he is a very good player Joe Flacco Jersey ,” Harbaugh said, via the team’s official website. “He has played at a starting-caliber level in the games that he’s played, and he’s an experienced guy. I’d rather have him than not have him, for sure, but there are other factors that go into that, and we’ll have to figure all that out. Ozzie [Newsome] ultimately will have to make that decision.”Report: RB Kenneth Dixon tweaked his hamstring Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon reportedly suffered an injury during Thursday’s practice that forced him to leave with a trainer.It is unclear what exactly he injured or the severity at this time, but this is could be concerning news for Baltimore. Dixon was considered a near roster-lock, and he was expected to compete with Alex Collins for snaps. Dixon was a fourth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, and despite his impressive production in college, it has yet to translate to the NFL. In college, he finished his career with 87 total touchdowns, which was an NCAA record that was short lived. Former Raven Keenan Reynolds broke that record during the same season. He was a superstar at Louisiana Tech as he broke several other records during his time there. In the NFL Youth John Brown Jersey , it has been a different story. Dixon has suffered three knee injuries and served a couple of suspensions since joining the Ravens. Dixon missed the first four games of his rookie season but appeared in the final 12 contests. He recorded 382 rushing yards and two touchdowns, while also adding 30 receptions for 162 yards and a touchdown. Dixon missed the entire 2017 season due to a knee injury, while simultaneously serving a suspension for violating the NFL’s PED policy.If Dixon’s injury is serious, Baltimore will have several different options to replace his roster spot. The Ravens currently have three UDFA running backs on the roster: Mark Thompson, Gus Edwards and De’Lance Turner. Thompson and Edwards are both big-bodied running backs, who had some success in college. While, Turner is a smaller explosive back, who also has been getting reps as a returner.Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg did not give an update on Dixon’s health, but he did praise their depth at running back. “The answer would be no. We’re pretty thick right there, with some really good ball players. By thick, I mean we’re pretty deep, with some pretty good ball players. No Youth Matt Skura Jersey , I’m happy with the depth at the running back spot,” Mornhinweg said. If Baltimore wanted to test the free agency market, Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles are among the top options. DeMarco Murray is also a free agent, who recently announced his retirement, but the Ravens may be able to entice him enough to come out of retirement. Baltimore started training camp with $8.8 million in cap space, per Russell Street Report’s Brian McFarland.Update 11:51 am ETIt appears the Ravens received relatively ‘good news’ as Dixon tweaked his hamstring, per Jeff Zrebiec.
