The Ravens have remained confident with their options at linebacker, despite the loss of C.J. Mosley. The trio of Patrick Onwuasor, Kenny Young and Chris Board are expected to command the bulk of the playing time this season, but the Ravens lack significant depth behind them. 

On Wednesday, Baltimore hosted and worked out free-agent linebacker Vincent Rey, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley. 

Rey is a familiar face. He spent the last nine seasons with the Bengals serving as a key special teams player and a full-fleged starter at linebacker when needed. 

The Ravens value experienced special teamers. They added Justin Bethel for that reason and Rey could help fill the void of Albert McClellan, who was released last season and helped lead the Patriots to a Super Bowl title.

With Onwuasor, Young, Board and Anthony Levine Sr., the Ravens are two deep at linebacker. The Ravens have been fortunate to avoid any major injuries to this point, but they can happen at any moment.

The Ravens attempted to sign Brandon Marshall in March, so it’s not a surprise the team is targeting another veteran linebacker.

If anything, Rey could serve as a valuable body heading into training camp.
