Ravens Add Blocking Specialist Lorenzo Neal to the Backfield


The Ravens continue to tweak their roster, and today they added veteran fullback Lorenzo Neal.  The 37-year-old knows all about 1000-yard rushers, as he’s been the lead blocker for a 1000 yard rusher for 11 straight seasons.  This is his seventh teams and the second time around with Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, who was the OC in San Diego when Neal played there.

He was let go by the Chargers in February, and will bring some talent and toughness to the position for the Ravens.  “He’s one of the finest professionals that I’ve had the privilege to work with,” Cameron said. “When you talk about a Raven — a guy who is physical, competitive and wants to win — one of the first guys I thought of was Lorenzo Neal. He’s going to be a great complement to Le’Ron [McClain].”

The birds had released fullback Justin Green on Monday possibly knowing that Neal was in the bag.
