Was a pro-bowler on the Ravens Championship team.

Was playing well before he got hurt last year.

He is available and if healthy would be the best DB on the team regardless of wether Dunta rejoins the team or not.

He has the size to play either S position also.

I think he's worth bringing in for a look and see if he's healthy.

He's 32 years old.

Short contract. He's got the potential to be a band-aid and a placeholder, nothing more. If we need that then fine but I'm not so sure we do. There are lots of older options out there right now. We need to wait and see what we have and if we need someone else then who shakes loose over the next few weeks.

32 isn't terrible for a CB because it's generally not a high contact position. Might have lost a step though. I wouldn't know Only time I watched the Ravens was in the playoffs.

I wouldn't mind bringing him in but, I have to wonder how much cap space we have and would it be real intelligent to have so much money tied up at CB? Unless they decide to rescind the tag on Dunta.

It's a pretty safe bet.

Fred Bennett is our most experienced CB right now, isn't he? Might as well bring someone in.

Not so sure about him. Might have lost a step.
Allowed 2 TDs in 5 games.
One of them is a 67 yder from Manning to Harrison.
You can watch that one on nfl.com video
He gave Harrison a big cushion and yet still got beat badly.

He played well last year.

How did he play well last year? He only started 5 games. Also, he's notorious for having issues with his head coaches, freelancing in coverage and he has lost a step.

I think there might be a reason 31 other teams passed on him. CB's are one of the most sought after position in the league and this dude's still out there, I'll pass.
