Baltimore’s trade for Seahawks cornerback Josh Wilson worked out rather well for the Ravens.
They sent a conditional fifth-round pick to Seattle that would upgrade to a fourth-round pick based on the number of Wilson’s starts. Despite Wilson stepping in and starting nine games, Ravens G.M. Ozzie Newsome said Wilson didn’t meet “the requirements for the condition to kick in.”
Wilson is set to hit unrestricted free agency under old CBA rules. He’s had an up and down career, but was undoubtedly the best cornerback on a team that won a playoff game last year. Seattle did him a huge favor with that trade.
