Ravens Breakout Candidate: CB Maurice Canady

Ravens Breakout Candidate: CB Maurice Canady

Promising Baltimore Ravens cornerback Tavon Young went down with an ACL tear in offseason workouts earlier this month, a significant loss. The club’s front office has bolstered their depth at corner beautifully this offseason through the acquisitions of Brandon Carr and Marlon Humphrey, but both are presently viewed as outside cornerbacks. Enter Maurice Canady, a second-year player who is currently the favorite to start at the crucial slot cornerback position, per Garrett Downing. Canady was a sixth round pick by the Ravens in the 2016 draft class after starting three seasons for...

Did the Baltimore Ravens overpay Brandon Williams?

Did the Baltimore Ravens overpay Brandon Williams?

The defense is the focus for the 2017-2018 Baltimore Ravens; Ozzie proved this after spending big money on Brandon Williams, Tony Jefferson and Brandon Carr. The re-signing of Brandon, though, is worrisome. A contract hefty in price, to an incredible player no doubt, but is it towards the wrong position? According to spotrac.com, Brandon is eighth highest paid DT/NT in the league. He’s absolutely worth a good contract, but is he deserving of $52.5 million over five years? The Ravens defensive front plays 3-4, or 4-3 under. Brandon, more often than anything else, plays nose tackle. His...

Jeremy Maclin will wear No. 18 as a Baltimore Raven

Jeremy Maclin will wear No. 18 as a Baltimore Raven

Perriman’s old number has been given to the new free agent acquisition. Yet another Baltimore Ravens off-season where Ozzie Newsome worked his magic with a delayed free agent signing. With the front office holding back after the initial free agent frenzy, they come up big with the right players for this team in 2017. Players like Tony Jefferson, Brandon Carr and Danny Woodhead will wear Ravens uniforms this season; also donning the purple & black, new acquisition, Jeremy Maclin. Maclin might've been the biggest free agent signing the team made. Granted we won't find out for sure until...

Poll: Which first-year Raven will have the biggest impact this season?

Poll: Which first-year Raven will have the biggest impact this season?

The Ravens added several key players this off-season, whether it be via free-agency or the draft. Now, the question is which player will have the biggest impact this season? I have narrowed it down to the top six; Marlon Humphrey, Tim Williams, Tyus Bowser, Danny Woodhead, Tony Jefferson and Brandon Carr. I left out several other players who may make a impact this season, but those are the top six. Tony Jefferson is the favorite in this poll. Jefferson was the best safety in free-agency and chose Baltimore over several other teams, including the Browns who reportedly offered more money....

Tavon Young injures knee during Thursday’s practice

Tavon Young injures knee during Thursday’s practice

Young injured his knee after getting an interception in practice. The Baltimore Ravens spent the majority of the offseason both in free agency and the draft at fixing the secondary after years of ineptitude and inconsistency. The team added Brandon Carr, Tony Jefferson and Marlon Humphrey to a unit that already consists of Lardarius Webb, Jimmy Smith and Eric Weddle. One of the brightest players in the secondary after coming off a strong rookie campaign was Tavon Young. Young was a fourth round pick in the 2016 draft and really emerged as that slot nickel corner the team had been looking...

Three questions heading into Ravens mini-camp: Defense edition

Three questions heading into Ravens mini-camp: Defense edition

The Ravens went heavy on defense in the 2017 NFL Draft and signed several key free-agents on the defensive side of the ball. Here are three questions heading into mandatory mini-camp: How improved will the secondary be? Will the pass-rush be reborn? Who will replace Zachary Orr? The Ravens preached all off-season about the need to get better on the backend of the defense. Baltimore signed Tony Jefferson and Brandon Carr while drafting Marlon Humphrey and Chuck Clark. My take: The Ravens secondary has definitely improved. On paper, Baltimore has the best safety-duo in the league with...

Brandon Carr vs Marlon Humphrey: predicting who will be the Week One starter

Brandon Carr vs Marlon Humphrey: predicting who will be the Week One starter

Will it be the veteran or the rookie? One of the biggest issues facing the Ravens coming into this offseason was finding a reliable cornerback to line up across the field from Jimmy Smith. General manager Ozzie Newsome and his staff have absolutely accomplished that goal, adding not one, but two players who could fill that spot. Those players are free agent signee Brandon Carr, and first round draft pick Marlon Humphrey. However, with just one spot up for grabs, will it be the veteran who is the Week One starter, or will it be the rookie? Typically, with the occasional exception for...

Cowboys OTAs: New-Looked Secondary Begins To Take Shape

The Dallas Cowboys made some significant changes to their secondary over the course of the offseason. After losing former starters Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr to Free Agency, the Cowboys decided to bring in veteran corner and former Philadelphia Eagle Nolan Carroll. Later on in the offseason process, the Cowboys drafted not one, but two cornerbacks on day two of the 2017 NFL Draft. Those corners, Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis, are both expected to compete and challenge for week one starting jobs in the Cowboys secondary, primarily as the nickel cornerback. While the move to sign...
