Rating Some Potential Ravens Acquisitions


Welcome again, Ravens Flock. We’re within the panorama of the NFL cycle the place values of sure veterans will change into intriguing as groups work out their rosters. This implies some good gamers will change into obtainable for signal or commerce.

The Ravens are at all times lively round this time of the 12 months as veterans get minimize after June 1, and thus signing them gained’t have an effect on the compensatory decide components. Whereas the Ravens have discovered loads of worth on this space, actual affect gamers are not often obtainable.

That’s not the case right here in 2023. In the present day, we are going to have a look at the 4 strikes the Ravens could make proper now for established gamers and attempt to decipher which is able to take advantage of affect.

The rating will begin with my least favourite potential transfer, working as much as THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN NOW.

Let’s begin with a participant that will make no sense.

Some Ravens followers appear excited on the prospect of including Dalvin Prepare dinner, however I don’t get why EDC would even kick the tires right here. Even when J.Ok. Dobbins is all however gone in 2024, and Gus Edwards isn’t returning, I don’t care. Prepare dinner remains to be participant, however he confirmed some critical regression final 12 months and is a strolling harm. The backfield is crowded proper now, and operating backs could be had on a budget. This one is a non-starter.


The subsequent one is DeAndre Hopkins. D-Hop is far decrease on my record than that of many in Flock Nation, as a result of, to me, he isn’t wanted. In the event that they hadn’t signed Odell Beckham Jr. and drafted Zay Flowers? Certain, signal me up. Because it stands, no thanks.

Hopkins is assembly with different groups in the mean time.

This assembly additionally raises questions on Hopkins’ mindset: is he after the perfect deal, or is he attempting to win? Whereas the Titans won’t be as unhealthy as they had been final 12 months, they aren’t Tremendous Bowl contenders. I used to be beneath the impression that Hopkins wished to win now and have a shot at going to the Tremendous Bowl, so why is he assembly with the Titans? Drive up his value, perhaps? Hopkins can be taking his time making his determination. I don’t see him touchdown in purple and black.


Now the enjoyable half. The subsequent two strikes, I’d like to see. Unsurprisingly, they’re each gamers from the identical group: EDGE.

Edge rusher has been one of the crucial talked about wants this 12 months, particularly with out a Justin Houston signing. I’m of the opinion that that is nonetheless essentially the most obtrusive want for the 2023 Ravens.

First up:

Chase Younger has had a disappointing profession for a quantity two total decide. He had an honest rookie season however tore his ACL in his second season, and took a very long time final 12 months to return. The Commanders had been oddly affected person with him, and for about two weeks, they mentioned he was shut however nonetheless didn’t play. Younger presents a bizarre dialog as a result of he could be a high-risk, high-reward commerce. If Younger works out and turns into the participant he was meant to be, that helps the Ravens this 12 months; there’s a catch to this, although. Chase Younger had his fifth-year possibility declined by the Commanders, and could be a rental. For this reason Younger is second on my record and never first. If he breaks out and performs effectively, he’ll get an enormous deal from somebody, and I simply don’t see the Ravens being that staff. Add the truth that the Commanders and Ravens by no means make offers with each other, and this one has to enter the “unrealistic” pile. It stinks, however the higher possibility lies subsequent.

I gained’t spend an excessive amount of time speaking about Danielle Hunter as a result of Darin did an awesome job with that in yesterday’s Out To Lunch, however sure, he’s my primary goal.

Hunter ought to shoot to the highest of each Ravens fan’s want record.

That is the take everybody ought to have at this level. Hunter additionally has a really low cap hit this 12 months, so the Ravens must be on the telephones getting this achieved if he’s obtainable.

To complete up, I’ll say that if the Ravens don’t get any of those guys, there are nonetheless free brokers on the market that may assist:

With that mentioned Hunter could be the cherry on high of a scrumptious sundae that has been this offseason (since Lamar signed, anyway).

So please, EDC: commerce for Danielle Hunter if it prices something lower than a second rounder, even when could be a rental.
