Looks like the Ravens are moving on from James Ihedigbo

It looks like James Ihedigbo's time in Baltimore is all but over.

Puts them in the market for a new safety.

James Ihedigbo was among Baltimore's best defenders in 2013.

He had 103 tackles and a career-high three interceptions. Entering the season expecting to be a backup, Ihedigbo earned a starting position in training camp and held onto it all season.

His stellar 2013 campaign in a contract year, however, has all but put the nail in the coffin on a potential return to the Ravens in 2014.



Most of the teams interested in Ihedigbo are in the NFC, including the Detroit Lions, writes the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

Ihedigbo's earned a bigger contract so his departure shouldn't be seen as a surprise by any means.

But the Ravens will need to address this need in free agency, via a trade or through the draft.

It makes you wonder if finding a safety is beginning to emerge as one of the top two priorities at this stage of this offseason.
