For comparison within the AFC North, the Ravens outpaced the Browns, who produced one deserving player, and Pittsburgh who produced three. Cincinnati matched the Ravens with four - A.J. Green, Andrew Whitworth, Geno Atkins and Vontaze Burfict.
Third places Weddle one spot below Raiders offensive guard Kelechi Osemele, who fled Baltimore for a lucrative, market setting contract last March.
The offseason acquisitions of Weddle, receiver Mike Wallace and slot cornerback Jerraud Powers have all proven worthwhile. Wallace has exceeded expectations as the 19th most productive wideout in the NFL this season. Powers has been a clear upgrade over recent Ravens slot corners, and posted a pair of interceptions in ten games.
Combine these free agent signing with the Ravens rookie crop, which has received high praise, and it becomes clear that the front office had one of their best offseasons in 2016.
