Darius Butler

Butler makes a good target for the Ravens because of his versatility.  His natural position is at cornerback, but he also played at the safety position last season. If the Ravens find other options at cornerback, they could play Butler along side of Eric Weddle in the secondary. He is a hard hitter who knows how to lay the wood on opposing players.

Like Nolan Carroll, Butler is already at the age of 30 and the Ravens could negotiate for him to take a lesser contract to come and play for them. With their cap space situation, the Ravens do not have much of a choice.

During his time in Indianapolis, Butler has experience playing under head coach Chuck Pagano. Pagano spent 4 years with the Ravens as a secondary coach and defensive coordinator and had tremendous success with the Ravens. His style of defense  translated over to the Colts defense as well. If Pagano likes him, then I can trust that he would be a good fit in Baltimore.
