Baltimore is always prepared for free agency and they generally wait for the market to set itself before pursuing free agents from other teams. Now it’s looking like the Ravens will lose two free agents.
Defensive end Cory Redding is reportedly set to meet with the Indianapolis Colts. This makes sense because the Ravens’ former defensive coordinator, Chuck Pagano, is now the head coach. Redding already knows the system and could tutor the Colts in Pagano’s defense.
If Redding does choose to leave, the Ravens will replace him with young defensive players Pernell McPhee and Arthur Jones.
The other player is more obvious. That player is left guard Ben Grubbs. Grubbs, a Pro Bowl offensive lineman, was reportedly offered a contract from the Ravens, but is expected to leave in free agency.
Grubbs, according to a report from the New Orleans Times-Picayune, will meet with the Saints. New Orleans lost Carl Nicks to the Buccaneers and Grubbs would be a great signing to replace him.
