The Baltimore Ravens don’t have very much money to play with at the moment. Strapped for cash, the Ravens have played almost the entire season with fewer than 53 players on their active roster strictly out of necessity.

Injuries have plagued the roster and stripped the team of any extra cap space they had available. As a result, expecting the Ravens to be major players at the trade deadline might be wishful thinking.

There’s a reason the organization wasn’t in on Stephon Gilmore despite an obvious need for an additional playmaker in the secondary (with Marcus Peters out) and the New England Patriots’ low asking price.

The Ravens simply couldn’t afford him.

While they would love to make an addition or two to sure up this roster ahead of what could be a Super Bowl run, the money just isn’t there to make a serious, major addition.

That being said, if they could make the financials work, perhaps the Ravens could consider a low-profile addition. One position they could look to address is running back.

Baltimore has gotten inconsistent results from their running backs this season, and expecting anything less following the losses of J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, and Justice Hill would have been foolish.

The Ravens could use a more dynamic running back to bolster their backfield. Let’s take a look at three feasible players they could target.
