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.

  1. He’s decent. Versatile. Can play CB or safety. Probably best suited at dime but he’s good on special teams.
    BTW – I heard the trade was Martin to GB for Tony Moll.

  2. it’s nice to get something for Moll instead of just cutting him loose outright like we should have a year ago. This Martin guy can’t be THAT bad. Good move.

  3. Martin’s not bad, the ravens are just deep there…WOuld moll make a decent backup? The ravens needed a backup lineman who can play a couple positions…

  4. Isnt martin the same d-bag that continuously got torched by Nate Washington the #3 reciever in the Burgh??? Yeah he is great
