For three reasons the Baltimore Ravens should not try to sign Nnamdi Asomugha.
Firstly, Asomugha is going to cost a ludicrous amount of money that any competitive team cannot afford. Secondly, the Ravens play more zone coverage than man which is not what Nnamdi excels in. Thirdly, the drafting of Jimmy Smith means that the team will, maybe later than sooner, have it's starting cornerback of the future.
That said they could still do with cornerback help. Last year's starter later in the season, Josh Wilson, is set to be a free agent while Lardarius Webb remains unproven after his knee injury.
Webb looks to be recovering well but that cannot be set in stone yet. For this reason they don't need to look to add a top tier defensive back but maybe the second level will suit.
Carlos Rodgers isn't going to be the most sought after corner, Asomugha, nor will he be the second most sought after, Jonathan Joseph. He may be the best fit for the Ravens though.
Rodgers would be an upgrade over the team's coverage from last season and isn't adverse to playing in zone coverage.
He played well in Washington over the past few years but suffered as part of a poor defense. With the Ravens Rodgers could excel with better pieces around him.
