Trading with the Denver Broncos makes sense

The most logical place for the Ravens to solve their problems at cornerback is in Denver.

The Broncos' areas of weakness -- linebacker, running back and wide receiver -- are where the Ravens have depth.

If the Ravens trade, they will be looking for a starter-quality cornerback. One possible target could be Denver's Andre' Goodman, 31, who had 44 tackles and five interceptions last season. He also returned a fumble 30 yards for a touchdown.

The Ravens are hoping Fabian Washington, Lardarius Webb and Chris Carr will be ready for the season opener at the New York Jets. They could make do with Travis Fisher as their fourth cornerback. They could also add an average corner like Frank Walker. So, if they're dealing with Denver or another team, the Ravens would want an above-average defender.

Denver has already lost multiple players at linebacker, running back and wide receiver. The Ravens might dangle the likes of linebacker Antwan Barnes, running back Willis McGahee and wide receiver Mark Clayton. To acquire a cornerback from the Broncos, the Ravens probably would be willing to package a couple of players for the right cornerback.

The Ravens lost their top cornerback, Domonique Foxworth, for the season after he tore his ACL the day before training camp officially began. Washington has returned from ACL surgery, and Webb looks close to practicing again, too.
