Todd Gurley might return to his birth home for the next stage of his NFL career, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

The former Pro Bowl running back is visiting the Baltimore Ravens today, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the situation.

The 26-year-old, born in Baltimore, Md., previously worked out with the Detroit Lions as he attempts to find a new home following one season in Atlanta.

In five seasons with the Los Angeles Rams, Gurley earned two first-team All-Pro honors and three Pro Bowls. But his knee injuries have caught up after years of heavy work. Last season, Gurley was clearly slowed in Atlanta. He averaged just 3.5 yards per carry on 195 totes -- a career-low -- for 679 yards and nine touchdowns. Gurley was slow to cut and had little of the burst that made him a star earlier in his career. A between-the-tackles runner not adept at gaining the edge quickly at this stage, he earned what the offensive line blocked for him and little more on most carries.

The Baltimore Ravens currently boast a backfield of J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, Ty'Son Williams, and undrafted rookie Nate McCrary. The Ravens might be looking to add another between-the-tackles veteran as insurance behind Edwards -- i.e., Mark Ingram's spot after releasing the veteran last season.
