Marcell Dareus gets another chance in the NFL

Former Alabama star defensive lineman Marcell Dareus is getting another shot at the NFL, this time with the Baltimore Ravens.

The former No. 3 overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft is currently working for the Ravens during their 2022 rookie minicamp, which also includes a pair of Alabama rookies in Jalyn Amour-Davis and Slade Bolden. .

Dareus hasn’t seen any NFL action since 2019 when he played for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Although Dareus has battled injuries throughout his NFL career, he still has some stunning stats. Over nine seasons, the Birmingham defensive tackle was selected to two Pro Bowls, was named a first-team All-Pro, had 37.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and had 365 combined tackles in 121 games.

Dareus became a fan favorite for the Tide when he intercepted a pass in the 2009 BCS title game against Texas and took it home for six years.

Roll Tide Wire will continue to monitor Dareus’ return to the NFL.
