When will the Ravens start doing something?

is Ozzie Newsome going to do anything at all?

This is unacceptable. In an unprecedented free agency the Ravens have done absolutely nothing to improve their team.

So far the Ravens have done has retained Marshal Yanda and Prescott Burgess but cut Todd Heap, Derrick Mason, Kelly Gregg, Willis McGahee, lost Josh Wilson, Donte Stallworth, Chris Chester to the Washington Redskins, and are on the verge of losing Dawan Landry to Jacksonville and Le’Ron McClain to Kansas City.

Keeping Yanda was indeed the top priority but if the only big move a team makes in free agency is keeping a player that was on the roster the previous season, they are not getting better.

Saying the team is tight up against the salary cap should not be a valid excuse when teams are looking to win Super Bowls. With the cuts they made the Ravens cleared $23.9 million in cap room, so they had the money to do more than simply keep their own players and sign their rookies.

But it’s amazing how the Ravens could possibly be so strapped for cash they can’t do anything when the New York Jets started free agency over the cap, signed Santonio Holmes and are on the verge of signing Nnamdi Asomugha, yet they will still have enough money to fill out a 90-man roster.

It’s also amazing how the New England Patriots can have such a high payroll and go out and made trades (giving up practically nothing in the process) for Albert Haynesworth and Chad Ochocino and stay under the cap enough to get more guys.

Baltimore had gapping whole on their team last year. They had problems in the secondary, couldn’t get a decent pass rush going, struggled to keep Joe Flacco on his feet, and the receivers couldn’t get open for big plays. If the Ravens want to win a Super Bowl they have to make a big move to help at least one of those areas but if they only address those positions with average free agent signings, rookies, and resigning the players they already had, that is not a way to improve the team.

The following two tabs change content below.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
