Along with the offensive line, the corner-back position has been a glaring problem for the Ravens. The Ravens #1 corner-back Jimmy Smith struggled to stay healthy and missed key games. Rookie Tavon Young had a very impressive season, but at 5’10” he cannot match-up against the bigger wide receivers in the NFL. Aside from these two, the Ravens do not have much depth at the position.
Smith’s replacement Shareece Wright struggled and gave up big plays. Jerraud Powers got burned against the Steelers and is set to be an unrestricted free agent next season.
If the Ravens were to bring in a free agent corner-back, Logan Ryan would make sense. Ryan has had an impressive career already, intercepting quarterbacks 12 times in just 4 seasons. At just 25 years old, he could be a young addition to the Ravens secondary. Corner-back Malcom Butler is assumed to be the number one priority for the Patriots. I would love to see the Ravens swoop in a sign Ryan if he does not get a contract extension.
We were hoping to cover the playoff push, but instead we are looking at the offseason. The offseason isn’t so long when you’re having fun. Keep it locked to Ebony Bird for everything you need to know about the Ravens. We had you covered all season long. Now let’s get through the offseason together. The Bengals game is up first though.
