Day 1 of free agency was the calm before the storm. That storm arrived in a big way on Tuesday with the Baltimore Ravens making two very promising additions in the form of star safety Marcus Williams and veteran right tackle Morgan Moses.
Williams was the splash that really no one saw coming while Moses provides excellent veteran insurance at an incredibly reasonable price. But even with those two moves, general manager Eric DeCosta might have another trick or two up his sleeve.
The Ravens will have to be relatively conservative with their remaining cap space, but if need be, they can create a little more flexibility. That means even some of the more notable names aren’t completely out of the picture.
Let’s take a look at seven (mostly) high-profile signings the Ravens could still make in free agency.
7. Ravens target: J.C. Tretter, C
The Cleveland Browns made the surprise decision to release standout center J.C. Tretter on Tuesday adding a new top name to the interior offensive line market.
The 31-year-old has been the model of stability and high-quality play starting 80 of a possible 81 games over five years in Cleveland all while serving as one of the best centers in football.
He’s a high-caliber leader and a darn good center at that — exactly what the Ravens need with Bradley Bozeman’s situation still uncertain.
Of course, Tretter won’t come cheap, and it seems unlikely the Ravens could afford him at this stage. But if DeCosta can work some more of his magic, this would be a home run for the organization.
