Ravens Stay Put At Trade Deadline
Yesterday’s NFL trade deadline was one of the more exciting trade deadlines the NFL has seen in quite a while. The New England Patriots shipped quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers, Dolphins pro-bowl running back Jay Ajayi is now headed to Philadelphia, Panthers star wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin is now a Buffalo Bill, and the Cleveland Browns had a deal in place for Cincinnati Bengals backup quarterback AJ McCarron, but Cleveland could not get the proper paperwork to the NFL before the deadline. Can the Browns do anything right?
Unfortunately, the Baltimore Ravens were not involved in any major trade talks and made no moves before the four pm deadline. The Ravens had been linked to Arizona Cardinals veteran wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron, but they were nothing more than a fetch for a story (via @NFL).
Fitzgerald to Baltimore?
Carlos Hyde to Oakland?

Seeing the Ravens stagnant at the trade deadline is no surprise. General Manager Ozzie Newsome hates to trade away draft picks and Baltimore does not have extreme depth at any one position to afford giving up. But let us hope that not making a move was the best move to be made.
