The Baltimore Ravens' pass-rushing unit has quietly taken some huge hits this offseason. Matthew Judon and Yannick Ngakoue are both playing elsewhere in 2021. Obviously, that's an area Baltimore will need to address.

And it's looking like the Ravens are trying to do just that. Four-time Pro Bowl pass-rusher Justin Houston is visiting with Baltimore on Tuesday.

Houston would provide a big boost to this defensive front. Baltimore only racked up a middling 39 sacks last year (No. 14 in the NFL). And that unit got a whole lot worse due to the departures of Ngakoue and Judon, who combined to post 9.0 of the team's 39.0 sacks, including Judon's team-high 6.0.

Houston, meanwhile, recorded 8.0 sacks in 2020 and 11.0 in 2019. He would've led Baltimore in that regard both seasons.

Even at 32 years old, Houston would be a huge addition to the Ravens' pass-rushing unit.
