Despite the current presence of Lamar Jackson, defense is still typically what comes to mind when most people think of the Baltimore Ravens.
The Ravens performed well on defense once again in 2020, but they lost some key performers this offseason. Linebacker Matthew Judon left to sign with the New England Patriots while Yannick Ngakoue decided to leave Baltimore as well and he joined the Las Vegas Raiders.
Judon and Ngakoue accounted for almost 25 percent of the Ravens‘ sack total last season, so they will have to figure out how to make up for their losses in 2021.
One way to maintain their defense’s pass-rushing abilities would be to make a trade with the Cardinals for Chandler Jones.
Recent experiments with safety Earl Thomas and wide receiver Dez Bryant shows that Baltimore isn’t afraid to take a chance on a player on the wrong side of 30. So perhaps Jones can be the next notable veteran to get an opportunity from the Ravens.
He would get to join a defense with former Arizona defensive lineman Calais Campbell and Baltimore is probably already very familiar with Jones, since his brother, Arthur, suited up for them from 2010 to 2013.
