Report: Ravens holding up Michael Brockers deal due to medical concerns

Baltimore Ravens

One of the big issues NFL teams are facing as they carry out free agency during the coronavirus pandemic is the inability for team doctors to perform physicals on potential signings. That is becoming a problem for one potential Baltimore Ravens signing.

According to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic, the Ravens have not finalized their deal with defensive lineman Michael Brockers due to concerns over the player’s physical, which turned up an issue with his ankle. That has called into question whether they’ll sign Brockers to the originally agreed deal, and they actually looked at potential alternatives on the market as well.

Brockers had an agreed deal nine days ago. Normally this would be sorted more quickly, but the restrictions on travel are proving a major issue here. It’s honestly a surprise that this has not happened with more deals to this point.
