It's only week two but the Ravens ship that was sailing toward the AFC North title in the preseason is taking on a lot of water. Well don't fret because even though Baltimore is down to four receivers (outside of Kevin Johnson, none have more than eight NFL starts), Deion Sanders may also get some snaps at the wideout position. And in case you're wondering, Kordell Stewart is working there as well. It's bad enough that the number two receiver going into the Steelers game is also the backup long snapper (Randy Hymes), but does anyone think that Sanders and possibly Stewart can help? So are the Ravens in trouble, or is it still too early to jump ship?
It's a year of huge cornerback contracts, with A.J. Bouye and Stephon Gilmore breaking the bank. But will these big-money contracts, and the big-time gambles associated with them, pay off?
