Ray was considered on the 53-man roster bubble, but was ultimately unable to earn a spot. He spent his first four seasons in Denver, accumulating 94 tackles (64 solo) and 14 sacks in the process.

Ravens' Shane Ray: Joining Baltimore
Ray agreed to a one-year deal with the Ravens on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Ray had numerous free-agent visits -- including the Raiders and Seahawks -- but ends up joining the Ravens after Denver elected not to pick up his fifth-year option for 2019. The 2015 first-round pick had only one sack in each of the past two seasons, as he was limited to 19 games with multiple injuries. Ray figures to compete with Tim Williams, Tyus Bowser, Jaylon Ferguson and Pernell McPhee for reps at outside linebacker, where only Matt Judon is locked into a key role for the Ravens....

Shane Ray: Visiting Seattle
Ray is set to visit the Seahawks on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Ray has already visited the Raiders and Colts -- who opted to sign Justin Houston instead -- this offseason in his quest to find a new home. Despite Ray's status as a first-round pick in 2015, the Missouri product has had a combination of injuries that have given him trouble finding consistency. Ray has a chance to find a spot in Seattle, where the depth at defensive end is fairly shallow.... See More ... See Less
Shane Ray: Visits Oakland
Ray recently visited with the Raiders, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Stephen Holder of The Athletic relays that the free-agent pass rusher visited Indianapolis a few weeks ago -- presumably before the Colts signed Justin Houston to fill their void on the edge. Ray is a 2015 first-round pick with an eight-sack season (in 2016) to his name, but a combination of injuries and superior talent on the Denver roster limited him to 19 appearances (seven starts) and two sacks the past two seasons. He might have a shot at a starting job in Oakland, where the depth chart at defensive end is barren.... See More ... See Less

Ray has an undisclosed illness and is questionable for Monday's game against the Raiders, Kyle Fredrickson of The Denver Post reports.
Ray was added to the injury report Friday and the specifics of the issue remain unclear. The 25-year-old was a healthy scratch last week against Cleveland, so there's no guarantee he suits up Monday at Oakland even if he's healthy enough to play.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Shane Ray: Not active Saturday
Ray is a healthy inactive for Saturday's game against the Browns.
Ray heads to the bench apparently healthy as he was not listed on the injury report this week. Most telling is that fellow outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett is still sidelined with a hip injury, and yet the Broncos still opted not to utilize Ray.
