The Baltimore Ravens are becoming more and more relieved by the minute that they secured a Super Bowl trophy this past offseason, as they are taking some significant blows during free agency.
Yesterday, the team traded wide receiver Anquan Boldin for a sixth round pick because they did not want to pay him his full $6 million salary. That was presumably to preserve salary cap space to sign their own free agents.
As it turns out, however, those free agents are leaving anyway, particularly at the linebacker position. Combined with the retirement of Ray Lewis, the team’s depth at linebacker is becoming significantly strained as other teams pick off their free agents. So what good is that salary cap space when you lose the players you want to keep anyway?
