FREE AGENT OPTIONS STILL OPEN TO THE BALTIMORE RAVENS
With a little over 3 months left before the 2015 NFL season kicks off, Maryland’s Baltimore Ravens still have time to secure another selection of free agents. With their previous campaign hit by a number of significant and unfortunate injuries- particularly on defense-the team certainly need to tighten up their back line.
The Ravens have already begun the process by securing New England Patriots’ cornerback Kyle Arrington on a 3- year deal however, he is a player that can be prone to picking up the odd injury now and again. Although Arrington has hardly missed any games- even whilst carrying these niggling injuries- the Ravens definitely need more defensive consistently moving forward into the new season. So who is high on the list of free agents that the Ravens may be looking to pick up?
The 30-year old was released from the Carolina Panthers back in February and is currently a free agent looking to join a team that will be making a push to pick up a championship title, especially as his career is slowly winding down. Back in 2012, the free safety player managed to record six interceptions and defended nine passes in the Pro Bowl season.
Brian de la Puente
An ideal solution to help fill both guard and center purposes for the Ravens could be the acquisition of former Chicago Bears player Brian de la Puente. The versatile 30-year old picked up an ankle injury back in November but a move to Baltimore could see him re-team with offensive coordinator Marc Trestman who was the former Bears coach.
The New York Giants’ backup safety and return specialist Quintin Demps is another player who had quite a disappointing season but he could certainly secure more starting action if he heads over to Baltimore this summer. Demps currently has a 26.7 yards kick return average and if bought in then he could increase the Ravens odds for glory with Titanbet.
The experienced defensive end and outside linebacker Dwight Freeney, even at the age of 35, still manages to put in some impressive NFL performances. His role within the San Diego Chargers side was more limited than he would have liked but he would be great support for fellow Raven linebackers Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs.
