Should the Ravens take a chance on Corey Webster?


Remember Corey Webster? “That guy from the Giants?” Yes, that guy. A two-time Super Bowl winning cornerback, Webster is currently a free agent. And it just so happens the Baltimore Ravens are weak in the secondary.

As a lifelong LSU fan, I’ve had the joy of watching Webster’s career develop from his time at college all the way to his tenure in the NFL. A two time All American and an NCAA title winner, it’s no surprise Webster’s experience has translated so well in the NFL. That we’ve seen him raise the Lombardi Trophy twice is no surprise, nor is that he was a key contributor for both title runs.

    At 32 years old, Corey Webster’s best days may be behind him, but he still has much football left inside. Webster had a few subpar regular seasons with the Giants, but he is mostly known for his stellar performance come postseason.

    Webster made the fourth quarter interception against Brett Farve in the 2007 NFC championship in what proved to be the game winning play. Webster and the Giants defense would go on to win Super Bowl XLII in what was arguably one of the greatest defensive performances of all time.

    Webster would then go on to aid the Giants in another Super Bowl victory, putting on a series of some of the best postseason performances of 2011. The following year, Webster recorded a career high 58 solo tackles in 2012.

    Corey Webster’s big-time game experience and knowledge are what the Ravens need most. Baltimore’s defensive backs are young, green players. One of the biggest things they lost when Ed Reed left was a teacher, someone to truly show these guys how to play as a formidable secondary.

    Corey Webster can do just that.

    Still capable of making plays week in and week out, I think the Baltimore Ravens should take a shot at signing Corey Webster. Even if his numbers aren’t outrageous, it’s a small risk, big reward move.
