Ravens' Nicholas Grigsby: Headed to Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grigsby inked an undisclosed contract with the Ravens on Wednesday, Clifton Brown of the team's official site reports.

Grigsby will get a shot with a franchise that he's already familiar with, considering he was with the Ravens' practice squad in 2017. Last season, the 27-year-old made 10 tackles in 12 appearances, primarily suiting up on special teams while spending time with the Lions and Patriots. Heading into the 2019 season, it's expected that he'll compete for a similar role with his new team during training camp.

Lions' Nicholas Grigsby: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions signed Grigsby off their practice squad Monday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Grigsby's spot on the 53-man roster comes following the placement of Marvin Jones (knee) on injured reserve. The second-year linebacker spent the 2017 season on New England's roster before being waived earlier this month, so coach Matt Patricia is familiar with his skill set. He'll likely see most of his snaps on special teams.
