Onwausor officially signed his tender with the Ravens on Monday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. Onwuasor was given a second-round tender from the Ravens, and agreed to sign said tender Monday. In 16 games last season, the 26-year-old racked up 59 tackles (37 solo), five sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles. With fellow linebacker C.J. Mosley electing to join the Jets this offseason, Onwuasor projects as a starting inside linebacker for Baltimore next season.
Onwausor received a second-round tender from the Ravens on Friday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. With fellow inside linebacker C.J. Mosley set to become an unrestricted free agent, Baltimore won't take any chances with its other starter at the position. The Ravens would receive a second-round pick in the unlikely event Onwausor receives an offer sheet they don't want to match. The 2016 UDFA had 59 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 16 games last season, with his strong work as a blitzer and cover man making up for a lack of size (227 pounds).
Onwuasor recorded nine tackles (eight solo), including two sacks, and a forced fumble in Saturday's win over the Chargers. Onwuasor's game Saturday was perhaps his best of the season. His nine tackles were a season high, and it was his second multi-sack game of the year. Through 15 games, Onwuasor has 5.5 sacks, 3.5 of which have come in the last four games. He'll look to continue the strong play into Week 17, when the Ravens will look to lock up the division with a win over the Browns.
Onwuasor recorded two tackles (one solo), including 0.5 sacks, and a pass defensed in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. Onwuasor's sack Sunday gives him 3.5 on the season, a career-high. He's seen his role decrease dramatically this season, averaging just under 26 snaps per game after averaging over 40 last season. On the year he has 45 tackles (25 solo). He'll look to finish the year strong over the last two weeks, starting with Saturday's Week 16 matchup with the Chargers.
Onwuasor recorded two tackles, both solo, and a sack across 23 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Falcons. Onwuasor recorded his first tackle since Week 6 and now has three total on the season. The third-year pro plays a rotational role on the defensive line, logging 41 percent of the defensive snaps this season.
