The Ravens could have a dilemma on their hands once free agency begins, as three of their top cornerbacks from 2010 could hit the open market.
Six-year veterans Fabian Washington and Chris Carr are guaranteed to be unrestricted free agents, while Josh Wilson, a four-year vet, might as well.
The Ravens could sign any number of them back, but if they had to choose only one, which cornerback would you retain?
5-foot-9, 192 pounds 2010 Stats: 36 tackles, 15 passes defensed, 3 interceptions, 1 touchdown The skinny: Wilson took some time to get acclimated to the defense after he was added just after the season began, but he ended up being a solid starter for the Ravens. His 2011 campaign might be best remembered for his game-winning pick-6 against the Houston Texans.
5-foot-11, 175 pounds 2010 Stats: 31 tackles, 8 passes defensed, 0 interceptions The skinny: A true team player, Washington didn’t let a demotion rattle him. A regular starter for the previous two seasons, Washington had a few bad games midway through the season and saw his role with the first team go to Wilson.
5-foot-10, 182 pounds 2010 Stats: 67 tackles, 8 passes defensed, 2 interceptions, 3 forced fumbles The skinny: Carr finished 2011 as a real force. Opposing quarterbacks actually were avoiding him towards the end of the year. More of a nickel and returner in 2010, Carr showed that he can be a big-time cornerback.
