Pernell McPhee feels ‘rejuvenated’ by return to Ravens
Linebacker Pernell McPhee has been in the NFL for almost a decade, and his career has taken him to a variety of different places and teams. After signing with the Baltimore Ravens – the team that initially drafted him – in the offseason, McPhee has said that he feels much better about his upcoming second stint with the Ravens.
Speaking to ESPN about rejoining the team that he had won a Super Bowl with, McPhee said he was excited to be back “where it all started” for him.
“I feel rejuvenated and can’t wait to join the No. 1 defense from last season,” McPhee said. “I have so much respect for this franchise and city, and I look forward to being a Raven once again.”
After being drafted by the Ravens in the fifth round in 2011, he spent four seasons in Baltimore, before leaving for the Chicago Bears.
After spending two seasons there, he spent last year on the Washington Redskins, and will now once again be attempting to help lead a Ravens team back into the playoffs after the team made it there last year.
For the Ravens, this marks a somewhat busy second wave of free agency, as the team has also signed former first-round pick Shane Ray and wide receiver Michael Floyd.
With the team looking to add to their linebacker group and also looking to help young quarterback Lamar Jackson get in the pass catching department, it’s clear that the Ravens are ready to take the step to once again contending for Super Bowl titles.
