Ravens Add Two-Time Super Bowl Winner to Active Roster

After a brief stint on Baltimore’s practice squad, veteran linebacker Kyle Van Noy is now part of the Ravens’ active roster, with expectations that he’ll remain there for the rest of the season, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.

Despite the addition of Jadeveon Clowney, the Ravens required reinforcement on the edge due to injuries. First-round pick from 2021, Odafe Oweh, is doubtful for Week 4 due to an ankle injury, while 2022 second-rounder David Ojabo suffered an ankle/knee injury in Week 3. With Tyus Bowser on the NFI list, the Ravens were short on rotational players, leading to Van Noy’s signing.

Van Noy brings valuable experience to the Ravens’ pass-rushing unit, having accumulated 33.5 sacks in 126 career games. After a stint in Detroit, he found success with the New England Patriots, contributing 27 regular-season and postseason sacks while winning two Super Bowls and earning a place on the Patriots’ All-2010s Team.

After a return to the Patriots in 2021, Van Noy spent the 2022 season with the Chargers, playing in all 17 games and recording 46 tackles and five sacks.

Given Baltimore’s edge-rushing injuries, Van Noy is expected to contribute as early as this weekend. However, his role once the Ravens regain full health remains uncertain due to his limited experience on special teams in recent years.
