Mixed feelings about this one. Weddle was game savvy and a good leader on defense. But his skills were definitely down. All-in-all, sorry to see him go but it had to be done.

 

Now the question is 'Who takes his place?'

Of course, any plan to solidify the passing game depends largely on how much Jackson improves as a passer in his second pro season. While he made some plays with his arm as a rookie, he wasn’t as consistently accurate as anyone wanted. He acknowledged to reporters earlier this month that he knew his mechanics needed work.

Jackson said he has been working on those mechanics and other aspects of his passing since February.

I would go with the rookie last yr.  HE played well in his start.  Also the other rookie who was on IR can be looked at and the draft.

Jefferson should leave too.  He was worse than Weddle.

Whoever it is needs to be able to pass a litmus test: show them a picture of the Bengals wr corps and tell them to locate #18

They could lose 1/3rd to 1/2 of last years defense.

Mosley, Weddle, Zadarius Smith, Suggs...maybe Jimmy Smith...Urben.

That's a lot of leadership and experience there.

The D won't be as good as last years. Decosta is walking a fine line here if the 2019 D starts giving up big plays and points.

“[Lamar] was amazing last year, and then they add in Mark Ingram,” Burleson said. “We forget how strong and angry of a runner he is. … [The Ravens] are just getting started. I think people assume that Lamar Jackson isn’t going to pass the ball this year, and I will tell you right now you are wrong. He’s going to light up the skies and torch the ground like he did last year.”

Maybe 2019 is not the goal.  They are looking at the long term and doing a soft rebuild.
