Ravens free agency tracker 2023: Special teams standout Del’Shawn Phillips reportedly returns to Ravens

Welcome to the Ravens’ free-agency tracker, which will be updated throughout the offseason.

With the NFL’s new league year beginning Wednesday at 4 p.m., teams can officially announce signings and trades. Here’s a rundown of who the Ravens have agreed to sign, who they’ve lost and who’s still on the open market:

Free agent additions

Del’Shawn Phillips: The 26-year-old linebacker, who was a solid performer on special teams for the Ravens last season, is returning to Baltimore on a one-year deal, according to The Athletic.

A former undrafted free agent out of Illinois who also spent time with the Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills and New York Jets, Phillips was an unrestricted free agent after the Ravens didn’t tender him.

Last season, Phillips, whom the Ravens claimed off waivers from the Jets last August, appeared in 16 games, tallying five tackles, including three solo. He had only one snap on defense last year.

Running back Justice Hill: The 25-year-old running back, whom the Ravens drafted out of Oklahoma State in the fourth round in 2019, is re-signing with Baltimore on a two-year, $4.5 million deal that could be worth as much as $5 million, his agent Andrew Kessler confirmed to The Baltimore Sun.

Hill, who missed all of 2021 with a torn Achilles tendon, had his most productive year last season, with 262 yards on 49 carries to go with 12 catches for 58 yards in a career-best 15 games. He was also a significant part of Baltimore’s special teams, which included kick return duties.

Cornerback Trayvon Mullen: The 25-year-old cornerback — who was claimed off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys in January and is a cousin of quarterback Lamar Jackson’s — has agreed to a one-year deal, his agent Kevin Conner confirmed to The Baltimore Sun. No other terms were disclosed.

Mullen, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound corner who was the Defensive Most Valuable Player of the 2019 College Football Playoff national championship game, had 134 tackles, four interceptions and 28 passes defended in 37 games for the Raiders.

Free agent losses

Guard-center Trystan Colon: The New York Jets signed the 24-year-old former undrafted free agent to a one-year deal, Colon’s agent Andy Ross confirmed to The Baltimore Sun on Friday. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The third-year player out of Missouri was a restricted free agent but wasn’t tendered by the Ravens, so he was free to sign with another team.

The 6-foot-6, 313-pound Colon spent the past three seasons in Baltimore, where he played in 20 games, including four starts. After playing in a dozen games in 2021, he was active for just six games last season and played 49 snaps, 47 of which came in his lone start against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 13.

Colon’s departure marks the second along the offensive line in recent days after guard Ben Powers signed a four-year, $52 million free-agent deal with the Denver Broncos.

Tight end Josh Oliver: The 25-year-old who spent the last two seasons in Baltimore and was one of team’s most improved players last season agreed to
