If Ravens fans had a say last offseason, the one decision they likely would have changed was not re-signing kicker Matt Stover.

But what would be the second do-over? What's the second move you would have changed?

Not re-signing inside linebacker Bart Scott.

Rex Ryan targeted Scott in the first minute of free agency, but the Ravens had a chance to outbid the Jets. But signing Scott to a big contract would have meant parting ways with Ray Lewis because the team couldn't devote that much money to one position.

Not making an offer to safety Jim Leonhard in free agency.

The Ravens decided to go with Dawan Landry as their starting safety over Leonhard. If they would have kept Leonhard, the Ravens wouldn't have had the money to spend on Chris Carr, who filled the Ravens' void at nickel back and on punt returns.

Not trading for a wide receiver (Denver's Brandon Marshall or Arizona's Anquan Boldin). It would have probably taken first- and third-round picks to get one of those receivers. So, upgrading at wide receiver in 2009 would have meant not having two high picks to fill holes at tight end, defensive line and cornerback in 2010.
