This bothers me. i dont want kelly herndon, i will be really dissapointed if he is our starting CB next season. I would much rather pay the extra money and bring in Smoot or atleast trade up for Rolle/Jones/Rogers. this is not good news.

If we sign Herndon, and no other cornerbacks, then I think that's a very strong indication that we're going to go for one of the top CB in the draft.

The logical thing for the Ravens to do would be to sign either Fred Smoot or Andre Dyson who are both proven No. 2 corners. But if Newsome has decided that he would prefer to draft one of the top cornerback prospects, then he would look to sign a cheaper veteran to add depth, and one which could start if the rookie CB isn't ready.

If we sign only Herndon then I think that means we are definitely drafting a top cornerback. Bringing him in and no one else only makes sense if this is the case.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
we don't want herndon
if we do trade up and nab rogers, jones, or rolle this move makes sense because herndon is nothing more than a No. 3 corner.

Hey! the sky is not falling!

Herndon isn't that bad. Sure he had a bad game against the Colts but that happens to all corners sometimes. I guess you missed the Bengals game when TJ played with Baxter. Herndon's young and could still develop into a solid starter. But i don't think that the Ravens are just gonna hand him a starting job without competition. They will get another corner either in FA or in the draft. And it's not like there's only three good corners in the draft either, we could get Justin Miller, Fabian Washington (who ran the best 40 time ever at the combine), Marlin Jackson, Brandon Browner (the perfect Baxter replacement, a corner in a safetys body) or Corey Webster. All have potential to be solid to great starters in the NFL . We really need more than one corner anyway since most of our corners our ancient (Deion, Carter and Fuller) so picking up two average corners with potential is better than over paying for one good nr 2 corner.

id still rather bring in Smoot, Dyson or Rolle. Apparently Charles Woodson might be traded for cheap if the raiders cant get some more money soon. im not that high on woodson because he seems to be more focused on money then playing well, but its still a possibility to consider.
