Tavon Young

The Baltimore Ravens drafted Tavon Young 104th overall in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft. Young played in Baltimore for four of the last six years. He missed the 2017 season due to a torn ACL and missed the 2019 season due to a neck injury. Then in 2020, he played in two games before tearing the same ACL and missing the rest of the season.

In the 50 games Tavon Young played for the Ravens, he recorded four interceptions. He also had three fumble recoveries which he returned for two touchdowns. Both of his scores came during the 2018 season. He has four sacks in his career and 127 combined tackles.

Young joins the Chicago Bears on a one-year deal.

Ryan Griffin

The Houston Texans drafted Ryan Griffin 201st overall in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL draft. He spent six seasons with the Texans and caught 136 of his 221 targets. He scored seven times for the Texans and nearly recorded 1,500 receiving yards.
