Although General Manager Ozzie Newsome made it clear that the Baltimore Ravens won’t make a ton of noise in the free agent market this off-season, he made it known that if there is a player the Ravens like, they will try to pursue him. It’s no secret that the Ravens could use some help in the secondary, especially at the cornerback position. If the Ravens can restructure Joe Flacco‘s contract, they’ll have plenty cap room to add necessary play makers.

Janoris Jenkins would be a perfect fit in Baltimore, he’s an experienced corner with great play making ability. While watching a ton of his highlights I noticed how well he reads the quarterback, and how well he’s able to jump the route. Jenkins has 48 passes defended and 10 interceptions in his career which spans 60 games played. Jenkins has also racked up 230 career tackles. In other words, he’s a pretty complete corner with a bit of flair to his game.
The St.Louis Rams just recently were approved to make the move to Los Angeles, a move that got Janoris pretty excited. Janoris was recently seen in a Vine saying “Oh my god, I [really really] love [this great city] LA.” A lot of people are concerned with how Janoris will act off field in LA, which would be significantly less of a worry if he was not playing in LA.
This season, Jenkins carried a cap hit of 1.5 million, and with his capabilities will likely be searching for a bit more on the open market. Despite off field worries, Jenkins would be able to come in and make an immediate impact on the field.
With Lardarius Webb moving to free safety it opens up opportunity for the Ravens to add a corner via free agency or the NFL Draft. However, if the Ravens decide to keep Shareece Wright it would likely put the fire out on any ideas of the Ravens adding another corner via free agency.
While the Ravens adding Jenkins is just speculation and there’s currently no word of them even being interested, it would make sense. If the Ravens look to add a corner, this is the best route to take at the moment.
