Field Yates: Ravens Brought in Veteran DB Tony Carter For a Visit

What is going on at the Castle?

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

I would certainly love to be in the war room with Ozzie and John, because I really don't know what's going on right now.

According to ESPN's Field Yates, the Ravens brought in veteran defensive back Tony Carter to visit at the Castle in Owings Mills today. This is a little strange, considering the fact that the Ravens just traded for CB Will Davis of the Dolphins yesterday. With the addition of Davis, the Ravens now roster seven cornerbacks. While the team's secondary hasn't been at its best, many are blaming playcalling, rather than the players themselves.

Carter is a sixth-year veteran who has bounced around the league after going undrafted in 2009. Carter has been a member of the Denver Broncos (twice), New England Patriots, and Minnesota Vikings. Carter has been mostly used as a practice squad player, with his most notable play occurring in 2013 when he got in the way of a Wes Welker punt return. The ball bounced off his thigh and rolled right to the Patriots, costing the Broncos the game.

While we don't know why the Ravens brought in Carter, at first glance, it doesn't seem like he has much to offer for the team.
