Baltimore Ravens are loading up on W's

In case you thought this offseason has been Wierd...

Wow! They say good things come in threes. The Raven offseason thus-far has consisted of the signing of Three W's: Eric Weddle to shore up safety, Mike Wallace to bolster wide receiver, and Ben Watson to solidify tight end. Combine that with the resigning of Shareece Wright, and this has been a Wonderful offseason.

As Baltimore Beatdown's resident W, I found this to be quite pleasing. Add in Ravens under contract like Lardarius Webb, Rick Wagner, Williams (Maxx & Brandon), Darren Waller, Tray Walker, plus players fighting for roster spots like Cam Worthy and Julian Wilson, it is clear that Ozzie has a much bigger affinity for W's than for former Crimson Tide players. It is a shame Courtney Upshaw only has half a W- he would probably be resigned already if only he had the other half.

Unfortunately for Barber, Brown, and Beaucage the Ravens don't seem to have an affinity for the letter B. Nick Boyle is suspended, Terrence Brooks has been glued to the bench, and fringe roster players Brandon Beyer, and the law firm of Brown, Brown and Brown (Leon, Daniel, and Arthur) may not make the final roster.

Lericos just has Anthony Levine, Kendrick Lewis, and Kapron Lewis-Moore, also on the roster bubble. Odeniran has only Zachary Orr, but at least we know he will be on the roster come opening day. Mills has the threesome of Eugene Monroe, C.J. Mosley and Ryan Mallett, which is not too shabby. And lastly, Sedjero has the ever popular S, with returning Ravens Terrell Suggs, Steve Smith Sr., Jimmy Smith, Za'Darius Smith, and possibly Harold Spears. A nice lineup, but recently bitten by the injury bug bigtime.

So for now, W is the Winner. With Weddle, Williams (x2), Wagner, Watson, Wallace, Wright, Webb, Waller, and Walker, W dominates the roster in quantity and in quality.

Of course, the expectation is: if you sign more W's, you end up with more W's at the end of the season. That shouldn't be hard with only 5 last season, but lets hope we can add at least more W's for each W signed or resigned in the offseason.
