Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times quickly responded "It's unlikely" when asked if he felt the Baltimore Ravens were interested in signing soon-to-be free agent cornerback, Nnamdi Asomugha, formerly of the Oakland Raiders. In a story from Football News Now, Wilson acknowledges the rumors that the Ravens were interested in the All-Pro cornerback, but feels the team would not risk breaking the bank to sign Asomugha with all the other needs they have.

The Ravens will have to make decisions on a trio of their cornerbacks, Chris Carr, Josh Wilson and Fabian Washington, and also have Domonique Foxworth, Lardarius Webb as well as rookies Jimmy Smith and Chykie Brown in the mix for starting positions. Therefore, to put all their eggs in one basket by giving a huge sum of cash to another corner when they ave so many other needs in other positions on both sides of the ball seems to be a direction they won't be heading.

Wilson always has keen insight into the team and is right a lot more than he is wrong, and certainly seems to be one of, if not the most credible media source following the Ravens. While most Ravens fans would love to see a shutdown corner with the capabilities of Nnamdi added to an already tough defense, it Wilson says "It's unlikely," then most likely it is.
