Departure: RT Ricky Wagner
The Ravens descent line dropped off some in 2016, per Pro Football Focus, though Ricky Wagner was a second-best descent lineman on a group behind usually Marshall Yanda. Wagner is one of a best pass-blocking tackles in a NFL, though he’s usually an normal run-blocker. The Lions gave him a five-year, $47.5 million dollar understanding to be their new right tackle.
While Wagner is a challenging player, that’s distant too most for usually an normal right tackle. Wagner graded out as usually a 21st right tackle in a NFL, according to a NFL1000. While a group will need a few weeks to get practiced to Wagner’s departure, there shouldn’t be a large altogether drop-off in 2017. The Ravens will use James Hurst to reinstate Wagner during right tackle.
Arrival: SS Tony Jefferson
After signing a tip reserve in giveaway group in 2016 in Eric Weddle, a Ravens did it again in 2017 with Tony Jefferson. The Ravens sealed a former Arizona Cardinal to a four-year, $34 million contract, that is a largest agreement given to a reserve in giveaway agency. Jefferson is a good fit in Baltimore as he’s a widespread in-the-box reserve who can compare adult with parsimonious ends and using backs.
Jefferson graded out as a eighth-best clever safety in a NFL1000, only dual spots behind Eric Weddle. With a Ravens carrying Jefferson, Weddle and Lardarius Webb on their register during safety, they have one of a best units in a NFL. All 3 can cover and play opposite mixed forms of offenses, a pivotal to success in today’s NFL. Jefferson should have a large impact on a Ravens invulnerability right away.
