Baltimore Ravens: 3 secondary trades that make sense
The Baltimore Ravens secondary hasn’t been as dynamic as we hoped it would be, partially due to injuries, so here’s three potential trades to help the unit.
It’s no secret that the Baltimore Ravens secondary has been far from the elite unit that they were pegged to be before the season. Losing Jimmy Smith for a long period of time and Tavon Young for the entirety of 2019 has had major implications for the squad. Nonetheless, they’ve struggled despite the losses.
That’s why the Ravens have been highlighted often as a team in need of a new star to trade for. They’ve been constantly linked with Jalen Ramsey, as well they should be, but those talks are likely unrealistic at this point. It doesn’t seem to matter what Baltimore has to offer, as it’s unlikely good enough to satisfy the Jacksonville Jaguars needs.
Instead, the Ravens should think outside the box and look at other potential candidates to trade for. There’s tons of talented cornerbacks to be had right now, and there’s some that could even have a long-term future with the team. Considering both Smith and Young’s injury history, it would be wise to consider an outside move.
There’s three players who standout as the most likely moves to make, with a bonus one below that I would love to see happen. Who are the other three? Let’s break it down…
Honorable mention – Sidney Jones:
If the Baltimore Ravens could somehow swing Sidney Jones from the Philadelphia Eagles I’d be over the moon happy. Jones was my CB1 in the 2017 NFL Draft despite a late Achilles tear that took his rookie season away. Since then, he’s trending up.
It took a while for him to become fully comfortable from his injury, but he’s certainly becoming a force for the Eagles secondary. This would make it hard to nab him, but given his age (23-years old) and talent, he’d be a fantastic fit for the Ravens secondary. He’d be worth moving a third round pick for, as he won’t be a free agent until after the 2020 season.
