Ravens rookie LB David Ojabo holding out of coaching camp

Star linebacker David Ojabo, a product of the Michigan Wolverines, was a projected first-round draft choose earlier than he suffered a torn Achilles throughout his professional day exercise. He in the end fell to the second spherical of the draft, the place he was scooped up by the Baltimore Ravens. 

It seems all concerned should anticipate the 22-year-old to get to work together with his employer this summer season. 

Per NFL Community’s Ian Rapoport (h/t Eric Edholm), Ojabo stays unsigned and, thus, is holding out for the beginning of Ravens coaching camp. He’s the one choice from this spring’s draft class that hasn’t but put pen to paper on a rookie contract. 

“From my understanding, the argument is concerning the third-year assure,” Rapoport defined throughout Wednesday’s version of NFL Community’s “Good Morning Soccer” program. “Should you take a look at the distribution of the place gamers are and the way a lot is assured within the third yr, the Houston Texans absolutely assured the third yr of their second-round choose (defensive again Jalen Pitre), which has brought about everybody to enter flux a bit.”

Rapoport continued: 

“It is principally an argument of, how near 50 % do the edges get so far as the third-year assure? It is not a lot; it is a small argument. The 2 sides are attempting to separate the distinction. They’ve simply not but come to an settlement.”

Edholm added that Ojabo cannot follow Wednesday due to his damage, so the holdout is not overly regarding forward of August. It is anticipated that Ojabo shall be positioned on Baltimore’s non-football damage listing every time the 2 sides attain an settlement. 

In line with Todd Karpovich of FanNation’s Raven Nation, Ojabo will not make his professional debut till the center of the season on the earliest.
