One of the key figures behind Kansas City Chiefs outside linebacker Justin Houston's blockbuster $101 million six-year contract is former Morgan State strong safety and Deer Park Middle school coach and teacher Greg Barnett.
In his first three NFL seasons, the 2011 first-round draft pick fought injuries and inconsistency, but it was his defense in the end zone on San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree that helped preserve the Ravens' victory in Super Bowl XLVII.
The Ravens are hosting Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garappolo, Florida State wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, Utah cornerback Keith McGill and Cal outside linebacker Khairi Fortt for official visits today, according to league sources.
Anquan Boldin seemed hellbent this season to prove that the Ravens gave up on him too soon. And after he led the San Francisco 49ers with 85 catches for 1,179 yards and seven touchdowns, there is reason to believe the Ravens might have let him go too early.
