Back at the start of July, nearly a month before the Ravens reported for training camp, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic revealed that Baltimore was leaning toward letting Marcus Peters go as a free agent. That's indeed what ended up happening, with Peters signing a contract with the Ravens a few days ago.

Following that report, Ely Allen of Pro Football Rumors mentioned Byron Jones as a potential top-tier addition to bolster the Ravens secondary ahead of the 2023 season.

Back then, Allen wrote that "several veterans remain free agents," including Jones in his shortlist and adding that "Baltimore has plenty of other avenues they can explore."

Jones was released by the Dolphins back on March 15th, as reported by Field Yates of ESPN. That was reasonable as the transaction saved Miami $13.6MM in cap space, per Adam Shefter of ESPN.

Now, the catch: Jones was cut because of both financial reasons and, more worryingly, his shaky health. Jones has not played a single snap since the 2021 campaign. He underwent surgery a year and a half ago, and earlier this year he teased his retirement on his social network accounts.

Could the Ravens convince him for a last-season run if only for one or two games while Humphrey recovers, for a little bit of money? This truly feels like a long shot, but it's something worth considering given the precarious status and depth of Baltimore's cornerback room.
