The Carroll County Times calls Ravens LB Josh Bynes the "clear leader in the competition" to start opposite Daryl Smith at inside linebacker.

It was widely assumed second-rounder Arthur Brown would earn the job, but he hasn't run with it. "(Bynes has) earned it," coach John Harbaugh said. "He’s practiced really well. He’s physical. He understands our defense inside and out. He’s done a heck of a job." A 2011 undrafted free agent, Bynes started three games last season. Holding off Brown for the entire season would be a tall task.

Ravens re-signed exclusive rights free agent LB Josh Bynes to a one-year, $480,000 contract.

Bynes, 23, appeared in ten games last season, starting three. He made 36 tackles, including the final stop in the Super Bowl. Bynes could compete for a starting job in 2013, but most likely will see most of his time on special teams.

Ravens signed LB Josh Bynes off their practice squad.

Ravens LB Josh Bynes is out four weeks with a chipped bone in his spine.

Ravens promoted LB Josh Bynes from the practice squad.

The move gives the Ravens insurance at linebacker with both Jameel McClain and Brendon Ayanbadejo questionable for Sunday's Divisional Round game. Active just once during the regular season, Bynes was held off the stat-sheet.

Ravens waived LB Josh Bynes.

Bynes was promoted to add depth with Ray Lewis (turf toe) out of the lineup. His release could be taken as a sign that Lewis has a decent chance to return at Cleveland this week.

Ravens promoted LB Josh Bynes from the practice squad.

An undrafted free agent out of Auburn, Bynes should mostly be used on special teams against the 49ers, but could see a few snaps at linebacker with both Ray Lewis and Dannell Ellerbe banged up.
