Ravens deal CB Derrick Martin

Baltimore made a deal with the Packers, unloading corner Derrick Martin for a conditional pick, tweets Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times.

The Ravens spent some time during camp trying to convert Martin to safety because he’s a heavy hitter in addition to having some coverage skills. But the Ravens are fairly deep in the secondary and, ultimately, he became expendable.

The Packers were likely in the market to trade for a solid DB who can get on the field quickly at this point because of the injury-plagued preseason for second-year corner Pat Lee one of their nickel/dime DBs.

Martin was a sixth-round pick out of the University of Wyoming back in 2006.

UPDATE: The Packers sent offensive tackle Tony Moll back to the Ravens so the pick was not conditional. Unless, of course, the condition was that the Ravens weren’t doing the deal unless they got Tony Moll. Moll’s started 18 games over the past three seasons for the Packers.
