Geno Stone is coming back to the Ravens.
The 23-year-old safety, whom Baltimore drafted out of Iowa in the seventh round in 2020 and was a restricted free agent, re-signed with the Ravens on a one-year deal Thursday, his agent Jack Bechta confirmed to The Baltimore Sun.
The move came less than 24 hours after NFL free agency opened and was not a surprising one after the Ravens officially traded safety Chuck Clark to the New York Jets for a 2024 seventh-round draft pick Wednesday.
Stone now projects as the Ravens’ No. 3 safety after veteran Marcus Williams and second-year pro Kyle Hamilton.
Stone is coming off a solid year in which he played in all 17 games, including seven starts after Williams suffered a dislocated wrist. He had 38 tackles and one forced fumble on the season and earned a 69.6 overall grade from Pro Football Focus in the games he started, allowing just eight catches as the primary defender in coverage during that span.
Stone was also a significant performer on special teams, playing on 70% of the Ravens’ special teams snaps last year.
In other roster moves, the Ravens also re-signed second-team All-Pro long snapper Nick Moore to a two-year deal. Moore, who like Stone was also not tendered as a restricted free agent by Baltimore, went undrafted in 2019 and signed to the Ravens practice squad in 2020 from the XFL. The Athletic reported the deal is worth $2.5 million.
