It was gonna be a matter of time for the Ravens to make a play for cornerback to help bolster the injury-ridden secondary, but finally prayers have been answer.

It was reported by Adam Schefter via Twitter and on NBCSports.com, that the Ravens just acquired CB/KR Josh Wilson in a trade with the Seahawks for a conditional fifth-round pick.

This guy might not be Darrelle Revis or a Nnamdi Asomugha, but Wilson is one heck of a player.

Wilson brings stability and cover skills to the Ravens secondary and not only that. His speed and versatility would be perfect for returning kickoffs for the special teams.

He's also a product of Maryland coming from the Upper Marlboro area and playing for the Maryland Terrapins.

The question about the Ravens secondary has been a hot topic. First, Ed Reed is dealing with a hip injury and he might not be ready for the Monday Night opener on Sept. 13 against the Jets. Then, Domonique Foxworth was put on the shelf for the season because of a torn ACL he suffered last month at Training Camp.

Even though, Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb are back after season-ending ACL injuries, the question remains if they cam be healthy this season. They need to be especially a schedule going against elite receivers such as Andre Johnson, Randy Moss, Brandon Marshall, Marques Colston, Roddy White and the Batman and Robin combination of Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens.

However, I'm glad we didn't trade Willis McGahee for a cornerback because undisclosed teams have contacted Ozzie Newsome and company about the backup to Ray Rice.
