Drew Bennett wasn’t the answer. Biren Ealy definitely isn’t the answer.
So if Derrick Mason doesn’t return to solve Baltimore’s wide receiver shortage, the Ravens are reportedly prepared to re-explore a possible trade for Brandon Marshall, according to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports.
Cole references two sources in his story, but he also notes it would go against G.M. Ozzie Newsome’s nature to give away a high draft pick.
Marshall, meanwhile, is not doing much at Denver’s training camp. He missed his second straight day of practice Wednesday because of soreness. [Editor’s note: The sand tends to do that.]
The Ravens figure to allow Mason plenty of time to make a decision before they make any move. If they are interested in Marshall, that could also give them extra time to see if he’s fully recovered from hip surgery.
And if the price tag for Marshall is too high, perhaps the Ravens could look at another high profile receiver who isn’t doing much at training camp these days.
