Free agent Michael Brockers still has not officially signed with the Baltimore Ravens due to concerns over the former Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle's physical performed by an independent doctor during the coronavirus pandemic, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec on Wednesday:

It's been challenging for the Ravens to get a handle on Brockers' condition due to restrictions in place because of Covid-19. The uncertainty has them considering options. Brockers and the Ravens agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal on first day of negotiation window last wk
"I'm very confident Michael will be announced as a Raven this week," agent Scott Casterline said, per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.
Brockers suffered a high ankle sprain last season's regular-season finale.
Prior to that, the 29-year-old recorded three sacks and 63 tackles (34 solo) across 16 regular-season starts. Brockers has played his entire pro career with the Rams, who drafted him 14th overall in 2012.
Overall, he has 23 sacks and 344 tackles (229 solo) in 123 games (121 starts).
Pro Football Focus graded Brockers at No. 23 among interior defensive lineman in 2019.
If the Ravens indeed had legitimate interest in signing Suh, they lost out on him when the 2010 AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year opted to re-sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, the Ravens still bolstered their pass rush by trading with the Jacksonville Jaguars for All-Pro defensive end Calais Campbell earlier this month.
Baltimore also re-signed free-agent defensive tackle Jihad Ward on a one-year deal. The Ravens finished the '19 regular season with the fifth-best running defense but ranked 21st in the league with 37 sacks.
