Baltimore Ravens: Learn About The Newest Ravens
The Baltimore Ravens made three big signings in NFL Free Agency. This is unusual for a Ravens team that is typically conservative in the free agent waters. The Ravens aggressiveness changes their offensive outlook. Benjamin Watson and Mike Wallace, give the Ravens a dose of speed at the tight end and receiver positions respectively. The signing of Eric Weddle, has become even more important in the light of the Will Hill news.
The Ravens have been quite busy this offseason. They first had to clear cap space to make these moves. When the offseason began, the Ravens had no cap space whatsoever. After extending Joe Flacco’s contract until 2021, Ozzie Newsome and company had made some financial breathing room. By reworking deals with Jimmy Smith and Marshall Yanda, the Ravens were also able to free up some cap space. Instead of cutting Kyle Arrington, the team kept him at a reduced salary. Needless to say, the Ravens have been busier than the Energizer Bunny at band practice.
The Ravens front office obviously believed that these three moves would help the team be better in the 2016 season. What will Mike Wallace’s role be with the Ravens? What impact will Benjamin Watson have at the tight end position? Will Eric Weddle save the Ravens secondary? These are all questions we are going to explore today.
