The Baltimore Ravens have quite a bit of work to do with their roster this offseason. Coming off a disappointing 8-9 campaign, the Ravens must make some changes over the coming months.
The impact of injuries in 2021 obviously cannot be ignored. The Ravens’ roster was ravaged by injuries on both offense and defense with numerous key players missing significant chunks of the season.
The likes of Lamar Jackson, Ronnie Stanley, Marcus Peters, Marlon Humphrey, J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, DeShon Elliott, and Derek Wolfe, among others, missed considerable time this past year.
However, the Ravens mustn’t place the blame for their shortcoming solely on those injuries.
It’s evident that this is a roster that still has plenty of holes. Be it in the trenches, the secondary, or any of a variety of under-the-radar needs, the Ravens have their work cut out for them this offseason.
Fortunately, they should have enough resources to make the necessary changes. While they’re a little short on cap space at the moment, they can save some money with a host of different roster moves.
On top of that, the Ravens have ample draft capital to fill out the roster and bolster the youth of the organization. General manager Eric DeCosta is in an unenviable position, but it’s far from an impossible scenario to be in.
With that being said, let’s take a look at three position groups the Ravens absolutely must rebuild this offseason.
