Five Under-the-Radar Free Agents Chargers Should Target

When the typical NFL football fan thinks of free agency, they think of spending big and bringing in household names. That being said, not every team has the luxury to do so due to the NFL‘s salary cap structure. The San Diego Chargers will have about 25 to 30 million dollars to work with going into free agency come Tuesday. Tom Telesco hasn’t spent big money on a big name player...

Recap: Stifled secondary, pass-happy offense lead to 23-16 Ravens loss

That wasn’t quite how we wanted to start the season. The Ravens undefeated campaign popped very quickly, and the 15-0 deficit probably should have been much larger.  However, at the end of the game, this was less a game the Bengals won and more a game the Ravens lost. The Ravens struggled to contain the Bengals offense for much of the game, and the offense got started too late...

Baltimore Ravens cut Derek Cox (again), cornerback situation fluid

The Ravens cornerback carousel continues to spin, as Saturday, the team announced they’ve released Derek Cox … again. Cox was cut from the initial 53-man roster in a move many felt was a technicality for cap purposes. Sure enough, the Ravens re-signed Cox and he became the fifth cornerback on the roster. And here we are today, one day before the season opener, and the team is...

Some surprises on the Ravens opening game roster…

Just 5 days before the Ravens take on division rival Cincinnati at home for the 2014 opener— and some eye-opening roster additions and some unexpected cuts. Undrafted rookies James Hurst (OT, 6-5, 308, North Carolina) and ILB Zach Orr (6-0, 237, U. of North Texas) made the team. Somehow Orr beat out the favored John Simon, who was trying to convert from DE to OLB and grab that...

Add veteran corner Derek Cox to the tryout mix as Ravens finish preseason at New Orleans…

Clearly the concern over the health of the Ravens’ cornerback starters has turned into emergency mode. Why else would Ozzie and John Harbaugh sign journeyman Derek Cox to a provisional contract going into the Ravens’ final preseason game against the Saints this Thursday night? Don’t get me wrong— Cox has a pedigree. He’s 6-1, 195, and only 27 years old— and was a star...

Ravens sign CB from Chargers who last year got 4-yrs, $20m in FA

There were murmurs of a forthcoming move in the Ravens’ secondary. Most of those whispers were on the trade front — the Ravens logjam at wide receiver could have opened some doors.  However, Harbaugh lamented how in these times, even if there are needs on the roster, teams have a tough time prying valuable assets from opponents.

Telesco playing dangerous game by not adding a cornerback before the draft

There’s a misleading sentiment around the idea of building through the draft.

While the draft remains the most efficient way to bring in skilled players on valued contracts — even in his second year Keenan Allen won’t nearly be paid what...
