Baltimore Ravens Free Agency 2017: 5 Cornerback Targets
I take a look at 5 cornerback targets for the Baltimore Ravens in free agency
The Baltimore Ravens defense was great last season, except for one area, and that was the corner-back position. The lack of depth in cornerbacks for the Ravens has plagued them for a number of years. Even with the great Ed Reed at the safety position, at times the team still struggled to surround him with talent.
Last season was no different. Injuries and poor play held the Ravens defense back from truly being great. Jimmy Smith’s injury took away the #1 option. Shareece Wright and Jerraud Powers were not enough to fill the void. Because of this, receivers like Odell Beckham Jr., Dez Bryant, and Antonio Browns made the Ravens pay.
If you ask any Ravens fan or football expert, they will say the team’s #1 need is a corner-back. They can accomplish this through the draft and also through free agency. If free agency is the option, here are 5 cornerbacks that the team should target.
