We’re continuing our free of charge agency study of each and every NFL crew, seeking for candidates from the Baltimore Ravens who could aid the New Orleans Saints after signings commence on March 13. We have currently lined the Arizona Cardinals and Atlanta Falcons as we go through the league, and will go on to update this collection of posts day by day all the way up right until March 12 — with two posts dropping on Saturdays.
Right now we’re supplying a look at Baltimore, which narrowly dropped to the Saints during the 2018 common period. They’ve acquired a quantity of intriguing free of charge agent prospective customers on every single facet of the ball.
- DT Brent City
- LB C.J. Mosley
- LB Terrell Suggs
- LB Za’Darius Smith
- QB Robert Griffin III
- RB Ty Montgomery
- RB Javorious Allen
- TE Maxx Williams
- TE Nick Boyle
- WR John Brown
It is attainable the Saints get crazy and pay out C.J. Mosley to supercharge the linebacker corps, but it is not probably. Mosley (6-foot-2, 250-lbs .) played much better against the operate than the go, notching 11 tackles for decline or no get. That explained, he was even now credited with 5 go deflections (which includes an interception) to go with 50 % a sack and two quarterback hits on passing downs. But any crew signing Mosley would be carrying out so for his over-all benefit: he led Baltimore in put together tackles (105) by a mile, with 70 solo stops to his name. He’s a defensive leader and probably an individual the Ravens would like to preserve really should the funds labored out. New Orleans is in all probability established at the posture in between Demario Davis and Alex Anzalone, but you hardly ever know.
Tight stop Nick Boyle was a marginal upgrade more than Maxx Williams, and now they are every single moving into free of charge agency right after the Ravens double-dipped at limited stop in the 2018 NFL Draft. Boyle (6-foot-4, 270-lbs .) dressed for 14 online games although Williams (6-foot-4, 254 lbs .) appeared in just six online games in between an ankle injuries and a stinger. Neither logged significant snaps as receivers, carrying out most of their work as blockers. It is attainable the Saints look at one of them as backup product, but neither is the reply at limited stop New Orleans is seeking for.
It is exciting to contemplate extensive receiver John Brown in the Saints offense. He’s a pure burner, a speedster (5-foot-11, 178-lbs .) who can beat any defensive back again in a footrace, reminding Saints admirers of Joe Morgan. Brown rated second on the crew in targets (97) and very first in yards (715) as well as touchdown catches (5). But he’s undoubtedly the form to choose the major off of coverage and operate in stride, not an individual who can generate tough yards right after the capture and struggle as a result of deal. That does not truly fit the description the Saints are functioning with.
