At 3-1, the Baltimore Ravens are atop the AFC North and looking to stay that way.

But, through the first quarter of the season, it's been the Lamar Jackson show. This team has yet to find another identity on offense, as the back field has been ravaged by injuries and the receiving core has read the same story.

If Baltimore wanted to add some depth to their running back room, they could become buyers at the trade deadline. Three backs, in particular, could be available for the taking.

Trade Number 1: The Ravens could call Chicago about D'Onta Foreman

The very first trade is the least expensive of them all, where the Ravens would call the Chicago Bears about D'Onta Foreman. Real quickly this season, Foreman found himself outside of the Bears' running back rotation. It has been Khalil Herbert and rookie Roschon Johnson taking most of the snaps, with Foreman looking like he is out of a job.

Foreman trade

Foreman spent last season with the Carolina Panthers and ran very well for them, filling in for Christian McCaffrey. He's got plenty of gas left in the tank and has a good amount of football left ahead of him, and wouldn't cost the Ravens a whole lot.

If they offered the Bears a seventh rounder, for a guy who isn't being used, that could get it done. Foreman would fit well with Baltimore, as he's a tougher runner who likes contact and can excel in short yardage, especially.
