LB - BAL
Week 14 Outlook
The Baltimore Ravens have declined the fifth-year option for Patrick Queen.
Queen tallied 79 tackles, five sacks, one forced fumble, and two interceptions in 17 games last season. Queen will be an unrestricted free agent heading into the 2024 season.
Patrick Queen was removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday. He is now set to play Sunday against the Colts.
Queen was part of a group of players who were considered high-risk close contacts to Marlon Humphrey. As expected, the Ravens got back all but Humphrey. All seven players are now eligible to play Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. The moves will help a Ravens defense that is already pretty beat up.
Patrick Queen, the former LSU linebacker, has agreed undisclosed terms with the Baltimore Ravens. The Defensive MVP in the 2020 National Championship is looking to make an instant impact.
In his junior year at LSU, Queen played in all 15 games of the Tigers' undefeated season and accumulated 85 tackles (37 solo), as well as winning the national championship. The 1st-rounder who operates predominantly as an inside linebacker looks poised to slot into the starting lineup in a position which the Ravens needed to bolster after the departures of both Josh Bynes and Patrick Onwuasor to the Bengals and Jets, respectively. Praised for his confidence in the position, Queen has been compared to the current Washington and former Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis by NFL Draft analyst Lance Zierlein, and so in fantasy terms, we can hope that Queen turns out to be as involved in a lot of high-tempo defensive play.
The Baltimore Ravens have selected linebacker Patrick Queen with the No. 28 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Ravens' roster doesn't have many holes at the moment but linebacker was one of them. Queen, coming out of LSU, is undersized but explosive with sharp instincts. He should fit right into Baltimore's culture of physicality as the team looks to win a Super Bowl entering year three of the Lamar Jackson era.
