    Safety James Ihedigbo visits



    Veteran safety with Jets and Patriots. Special teams guy with some passion. Not big news, but thought it was interesting. News from Aaron Wilson.

    Aaron Wilson ‏@RavensInsider

    Safety James Ihedigbo visited the Ravens today, according to a league source.

    The question would be if signed, could this please be the end to the Considine experiment now. I'm worried he could actually see the field on defense by him just being here.

    Was expecting to see him on the cut list. I assume that would be a decent cap savings.

    I think that Harbs had something to do with him staying more than anything. A couple players have that soft spot reason for being here.

    I thought he'd be the next logical guy to bring in.

    He isn't a typical safety though...he is sort of a hybrid guy who needs a DC who can put in spots he can succeed...basically don't have him covering WR's or trying to cover deep.

    Sean Considine is making about 800k. Not sure if any of that is guaranteed, but the savings we'll see from him probably is offset by signing Ihedigbo.

    I'm for bringing in this guy because it'll give us some insight to Pats system, but I don't see this guy being a huge upgrade over Considine. Maybe just healthier...

    He was pretty bad with the Patriots. Although he wasn't surrounded by the best talent in the world either. Maybe a change of scenery would be good.

    BTW Aaron Wilson reports that we plan on signing him.

    According to http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/baltimore...ean-considine/, it looks like the cap savings for Considine would be about 530k. So, it may end up costing us MORE to sign Ihedigbo. His contract he had signed with NE was 1 year, 765k.

    BmoreRavor, care to spot check my math there?

    Insurance and special teams contributor. I think it's because of the broken leg of Emanual Cook more than anything.

    If we sign him, expect someone else to be cut, I think the Ravens want to go in with 5 safeties (we oly have 4 currently) which IMO would be a mistake, because we should have just cut Considine, pointless signing, he was complete garbage in the pre season.

    Re: Safety James Ihedigbo visits

    How many concussions did Considine suffer so far, 1 or 2? Does he have a history of them from other teams?

    I just see him being sidelined a lot this year if he sticks to the 53.

    I wonder the odds of Omar Brown being called up? I didn't hear good or bad on his special teams ability.
