Heading in to the 2010 offseason there were questions surrounding the Baltimore Ravens secondary. With injuries to Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb, both tore their ACLs late last season, there is a perception that the Ravens are thin at cornerback.
At first, there were projections that Baltimore was going to draft a cornerback early on in the draft. That didn’t happen as the Ravens traded out of the first round in hopes of strengthening their pass rush.
To make matters more difficult for the Ravens, because they made the Divisional Round of the playoffs, they were under the NFL’s “Final Eight Plan” which is set to expire next month. For the Ravens to be able to sign a free agent they had to lose one.
In free agency, the Ravens did make a couple moves. They signed the released Ken Hamlin, a safety, from the Cowboys. Earlier in the offseason they signed cornerback Travis Fisher. Hamlin and Fisher provide depth but will probably not start for the Ravens.
The team is confident Washington will be ready for the season with Webb not far behind. With these moves and the inactivity of the Ravens front office, it appears the team will not sign any defensive backs for the rest of the offseason unless there’s a player released that is too good to turn down
Do you think they have done enough or is this going to be their Achilles heel all season?
