The Baltimore Ravens Have multiple tough decisions ahead of Tuesday’s 4pm EST deadline to trim their roster down to 53 players. They’ve already let a few guys go, but will have to part with even more talented playmakers as they try to balance out each position on the team with enough firepower and depth.
Those decisions come down to Baltimore general manager Eric DeCosta and the rest of the Ravens’ decision makers, but defensive coordinator Don Martindale jokingly shared what he would do if he were in charge. His answer was very defensive minded, as one would come to expect out of him.
Martindale said the Ravens are lucky he’s not making the roster decisions because if he was, he’d take all the DBs and keep only 2 WRs

With the depth that Baltimore has at defensive back this year, it would be ideal if the team could actually follow Martindale’s plan and keep every one of their talented cornerbacks and safeties. However unfortunately for Martindale, keeping two wide receivers might leave the Ravens just a bit thin at the position, so that means Baltimore will have to let go of at least one defensive back.
