The Facts: When De’Anthony Thomas opted out of the 2020 season, the Ravens needed a new kick returner. They may have found him. The Ravens are expected to sign veteran return man Barner, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Diehards Line: Barner is typically listed as a running back, but the Ravens don’t really have a need there and will most likely be using him primarily on special teams. Barner has 555 career punt return yards and 1,124 career kickoff return yards. A 2013 sixth-round draft pick of the Panthers, Barner has also spent time with the Eagles, Chargers, Patriots and Falcons.
