The Ravens are reportedly ready to sign free agent DT Michael Brockers.

RSR staff react to the news here…

— Eric DeCosta went against Ravens tradition and came out of the gate with a blitzkrieg of moves. Generally, the Ravens show patience in the free-agent market.

— A defensive line with Calais Campbell, Michael Brockers and Brandon Williams should be among the best in the NFL. DeCosta wasted no time establishing more balance on the roster.

— The franchise tag for Matt Judon was a no-brainer, especially how market shaped up. 

— Trading Hayden Hurst seemed to be the necessary move for the player and franchise. The Ravens can add a third string tight end in the draft.

— With nine picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, the fun has just begun.

I didn’t figure the Ravens would sew up a need pre-draft but here we are. With Brockers and Calais Campbell added to the mix up front the Ravens can focus their attention on Edge, OL, WR and really capitalize on value in the draft. Another strong move from Eric DeCosta.

It’s clear DeCosta is making the defensive line a priority this offseason. This signing was surprising because there was no mention of interest by the Ravens prior to it. I know Brockers is a good player but based on his contract that the Ravens were willing to give him they have high expectations for him. This should be a dominant defensive front that won’t be easy to run on and much more disruptive in the pass rush department as well. There is a lot of money now committed to both the secondary and defensive line. I’m not sure what this means for Matt Judon and that expensive tag dollar figure.

I’m very interested to see what else EDC has in store for the rest of this roster.

We’ll have more knee-jerk reactions as they roll in…
