I couldn’t help but notice a couple of trends with the Ravens’ four offseason additions so far.
First, the Ravens signed four players who were cut by other teams this past offseason. Why is that significant, other than the chips they might have on their shoulders? By signing players who were released and allowing unrestricted free agents such as Paul Kruger, Cary Williams, Ed Reed and Dannell Ellerbe to sign elsewhere, the Ravens are again setting themselves up to secure a few more compensatory picks in next year’s NFL draft.
Second, these players seemed to have picked the Ravens for a reason: They want to win a Lombardi Trophy.
