UGA great and current NFL free agent Todd Gurley visited with the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, per a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Gurley, the former NFL Offensive Player of the Year with the Los Angeles Rams, was at one time the league’s best running back, but has since rapidly declined after his knee started giving him issues.
But there’s no doubt that the former Georgia Bulldog can still provide value to a team and remains very productive in the red zone.
Gurley, 26, is coming off of a one-year stint with the Atlanta Falcons after spending his first five seasons in the league with the L.A. Rams.
If Gurley is to join the Ravens, he would be pairing up with superstar quarterback Lamar Jackson in Baltimore as well as second year running back and Ohio State great JK Dobbins.
UGA’s fourth all-time leading rusher ran for 678 yards on 195 carries (3.5 avg.) and nine touchdowns, while adding another 164 yards on 25 catches in his one season in Atlanta.
Gurley has battled knee arthritis since his time with the Rams. With L.A., Gurley was one of the best running backs in the NFL. The Tarboro, N.C., native was named offensive rookie of the year in 2015, offensive player of the year in 2017, along with two First-Team All-Pro selections and three Pro Bowl appearances in five seasons.
While Gurley did not produce in Atlanta like he did for the Rams, the Falcons troubles may have contributed to the low numbers. Atlanta ranked 26th in the league in run offense last season. With the right scheme and fit, Gurley could blossom once again.
