Ravens Cornerback Targets?

With the announcement that former Baltimore Ravens cornerback Josh Wilson agreeing to terms with the Washington Redskins, the team must now turn its attention elsewhere in order to shore up its secondary.  A run at top free agent Nnamdi Asomugha seems far-fetched for a team with many different needs and not a lot of cap space available despite the release of four veterans earlier this week.

For consistency purposes, the best thing to immediately focus on would be the re-signing of veteran Chris Carr. With Domonique Foxworth and Lardarius Webb, those three along with rookies Jimmy Smith and Chykie Brown, would make the Ravens secondary palatable to most fans, as long as they have some resemblance of a pass rush in front of them and Ed Reed as insurance patrolling center-field behind them.

At the same time, there remains the Asomugha possibility, as well as a couple of other solid free agent cornerbacks, namely former New York Jets CB Antonio Cromartie and recently released San Francisco 49ers CB Nate Clements. Both guys have been to the Pro Bowl and could add to the depth, if not come right in and start, at least until the rookie Smith gets comfortable with the speed of the pro game and the Ravens system.
