The Baltimore Ravens haven’t shied away from high-profile trades in recent years. Players like Marcus Peters, Calais Campbell, and Yannick Ngakoue all represent notable players the team acquired via trade within the last few seasons.

And for the most part, when the Ravens trade, they have done so successfully.

The Ravens sent a fifth-round pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars for Campbell who remains a cornerstone of the defense even at age 35.

Marcus Peters was acquired for a fifth-round pick and linebacker Kenny Young — a bargain of a deal given his career resurgence in Baltimore. And even dating a little further back, the Ravens have many more hits than misses when it comes to trades.

The Ravens traded up to draft the likes of Lamar Jackson and Joe Flacco, as well as future All-Pros Marshal Yanda and Haloti Ngata. Their trade for wide receiver Anquan Boldin back in 2010 proved to be fruitful in the long run.

The Ravens have made some good trades over the years. But there are also a few that have produced less-than-stellar results. Those are the trades we’re going to focus on in this list.

We will take into account virtually everything related to the trade. And for this list, hindsight is most certainly 20/20.

Let’s take a look at the four most disappointing trades in Baltimore Ravens history.
