Ravens acquire Marcus Peters

Pretty scary.....We give up a benched LB and a 5th rounder so that we can get Peters, so that the Rams can give up 2 1sts and a 4th?

Either Peters is bad or the Rams needed to dump his salary on someone!

The Rams had $3.4 Million in cap space.  Ramsey's cap number this year is $7.4 million.  Even pro-rated they didn't have enough cap space for him without trading Peters.   Other teams are right up against the cap.  The Ravens had cap space so they could add him.

Peters is the #14 CB in the league according to PFF.  HIgher than Marlon Humphrey.

The secondary has been trash so far this year, but it could be pretty damn good once we get Jimmy Smith back.  Maurice Canady has also emerged as a pretty good player.  That would give us 4 good corners.

Of course we also need our safeties to step up.

I looked him up and I'm trying to figure out why the Rams would do this? This seems like a great trade for the Ravens. Guess the Rams don't see themselves going anywhere this year and see more in Young than the Ravens have so far. 

If Peters plays well, gotta think they try to lock him up long term to replace Mr. Glass.

They wanted to trade for Jalen Ramsey but needed cap space.

Makes a lot more sense now. Looks like the Ravens won out here because they got a really good corner in Peters without giving up much at all while the Rams gave up two 1st round picks for Ramsey (That's shocking if you ask me).

This is a little concerning though about Peters, "Ramsey should be a major upgrade on Peters, whose inconsistency had grown exhausting. It's one thing to get overmatched by a superior receiver; it's another to stop running against Mike Evans in man coverage." -- ESPN article on Ramsey trade.

If Peters stops Averett from seeing the field that's a win-win for the Ravens.

I have to wonder if Ramsey,  minus two first rounders and a fourth rounder is worth more than just keeping Peters.  Obviously the Rams think so.  So glad the Ravens weren't in on Ramsey at that price.  

The thing I like about Peters is he is a ball hawk which the Ravens so desperately need.  The cost was so low as a rental it's worth the look.  Great trade. 

In the end I don't think it changes much.  Still need a pass rusher.  Still, it will be fun to watch.

Giving up 2 first rounders is too much.  You have guys you can control for 5 years at cheap prices.  Look at Stanley, Humphrey and Lamar and how we have them five years with no big salaries.  Then you add in the huge salary they are going to have pay Ramsey it just doesn't make sense with a salary cap environment.

No arguments from me here. Paying two first rounders for a guy who could be a rental is a steep price to pay unless you think he's the difference in winning a Super Bowl.

I think a motivated Peters for the price of a reserve LB is a great deal any day. He'll certainly be motivated for a big contract at the end of the season.

They now don’t have a 1st rounder until 2022. I’d say they are playing for now and panicked. They picked up 3 players yesterday

I read that they need to sell PSL for their stadium opening next year.  And someone was of the opinion that finishing well this year will help move some PSLs.

Yep, it's pretty clear what they are doing now. They're all in for this year which is a little weird, because I honestly don't think they are that great, but I guess this is the end of their run so might as well go for it!

Losing the super bowl is a hell of a thing.

That was the play where the receiver was already well on his way to the endzone and Peters slowed up instead of sprinting after him.  Then made a comment after the game about not wanting to blow out his hamstring on a play that was clearly a touchdown.  

On one hand, it looks really bad, like a baseball player not running out a ground ball.  On the other, I see his point.  

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now and wish him well on the Ravens...until he gives me reason not to.  😉

Agreed. And on top if it all, he's in a contract year which means  doubt he's not going to play hard this year. Sound like someone looking for something to say negative about a guy. This is a no lose trade for the Ravens and although I'm still concerned over the pass rush, this improves the defense overall.

When Smith comes back, Peters can play nickle which might suit him better anyways.

I took a look at that Mike Evans touchdown.  Peters played him tight up to about 15 yards, and then just let him run by, and by the time he realized there was no one over the top to cover him, it was too late.  It was a definite blunder by Peters, but I believe it was because he got the play wrong and played underneath because he was expecting safety help.  To throw more salt on that wound, the defensive playcall in that situation was pretty atrocious in my opinion.  LA played cover-0 and stacked 8 in the box on 2nd and 5, and seemed to be selling out against the run.  The LBs are standing there in running lanes instead of rushing the QB.  As a result Winston had waaaaay too much time to make that pass.  There's no reason for LA to be lined up in this way in an intermediate-yardage situation in the middle of the field.

    • Another article on Reed from May 2019.  The first 33 games of 2019 have featured a paltry .205/.282/.410 slash as a 24-year-old in Double-A. An 84 wRC+ despite being slightly older than his average competition in the Texas League. Those numbers often describe a prospect afterthought, especially with most statistical categories beginning to normalize. Yet, a look under the hood suggests Reed is on the verge of a breakout that could make him a hot commodity throughout the prospect community before the end of the regular season. https://prospects365.com/2019/05/18/buddy-reed-and-buying-before-a-breakout/
    • It was a heck of a lot better than 2000-2009.  2012 was a truly great year, and 2014 wasn't bad, either.  And hopefully we look back at '19 as the year we finally got on track to having a top-to-bottom modern organization for the first time since the 1970s.
    • OK, I will exhale now.    Have a great Thanksgiving, Tony, and enjoy your time off!
    • Actually he would have to be up by the beginning of 2024, because he would be out of options at that point, using his three option years in 2021, 2022 and 2023, which could potentially further mess up his development.
    • If you're taking Javier and having him mostly sit the bench or hit .100 for all of 2020 I think you'd be looking at him as the possible shortstop in 2024.  He was miserable in low A last year.  On a normal track he'd probably go back there in 2020.  Instead you'd have him essentially miss the year, just working out with the O's.  You probably put him in Frederick in 2021. Maybe if he's really good he ends the year in Bowie.  Most of the year in AA in 2022.  If things work out well he's in AAA in '23, maybe a late callup.  But being more conservative you're looking at mid-year 2024.  Things could break better, his talent really comes out and he's ahead of that schedule.  But in no way do you expect him to be the MLB shortstop in '22.
    • In my opinion, you are WAY too worried about Mountcastle’s defense.    He’s not some klutz out there.    He has a weak arm.    The fact that he played 3 seasons on the left side of the infield tells you that he has the athleticism to play 1B or COF at a reasonably good level.       As to whether I’d lock him up now at that price, it’s a little tough to say.   If you think he’s likely to be about on the level with a Josh Bell or Trey Mancini, it’s probably worth the risk.    If you think he’s more of a Mitch Moreland level bat, then probably not.       And before people start poo-pooing Mitch Moreland, the guy has had a respectable 10-year career in the majors and had a career .883 OPS in the minors.    Most top 100 prospects would love to have Moreland’s career.
