3. Letting cornerback Marcus Peters leave as a free agent

Marcus Peters is a Ravens legend, and will always be, and nobody will argue against that. He's not in Baltimore anymore, though, but that's not really been a huge problem for the defense of the Flock, which has kept its collective head above water through the first month of play this season.

While it is true that Marcus Peters signed a cheap $3 million deal with the Raiders, the Ravens cut ties with him and instead used that money in the extension of Stone and Worley.

After that, Baltimore added veteran cornerback Rock Ya-Sin to play across Marlon Humphrey while trusting the latter as the clear CB1 and leader of the Ravens' secondary going forward.

We have yet to see the Ya-Sin and Humphrey pairing playing together as the former keeps ramping up from a summer injury and the latter has yet to make his debut this season, but the players that have made up for those absences have been quite fantastic.

Ronald Darby was great and is under a cheap deal with nearly no money guaranteed. Veteran Brandon Stephens has been terrific. Damarion Williams should return at some point later this season. So far, so good, and no Peters missed by Baltimore.
