Free agent running back Todd Gurley will visit the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, NFL Network reported.

The Detroit Lions hosted Gurley last week and have an interest in him, coach Dan Campbell said.

Gurley, 26, played last season in Atlanta after a five-year stint with the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams, who selected him No. 10 overall in the 2015 draft. A two-time All-Pro, Gurley led the league in touchdowns twice and surpassed 1,100 rushing yards in three seasons before the Rams cut him in March 2020 in a cost-saving move.

If Gurley lands in Baltimore, where he was born, he'd be competing for a job in a packed backfield that already includes Gus Edwards, JK Dobbins and Justice Hill.

A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Gurley has rushed for 6,082 yards (4.2 yards per carry) and 67 touchdowns. He also has 243 career receptions for 2,254 yards and 12 TDs.

He started 15 games for the Falcons in 2020, rushing for 678 yards and nine TDs.
