For his NFL career, Ya-Sin has 183 tackles, two for loss, two interceptions, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and 27 passes defensed in 52 regular season games.
Ya-Sin explained why he chose to sign with the Ravens.
“Great players on offense and on defense, “Ya-Sin said. I think we’re primed to win now. The right kind of culture, the right fit for me, I think. The right play-style, aggressive. The kind of division I want to play in. The kind of football I want to play. So I think it’s a great fit for me.”
