NFL Rumors: Baltimore Ravens?
For an NFL team to have bonafide interest in adding a strong-willed rusher like Cam Akers, that team will need to have three characteristics:
- First, that NFL team needs to possess a strong defense. That is necessary to avoid shooting matches, which almost instantly negates the ground game of any NFL team's offense
- Secondly, that NFL team must boast a strong offensive line that is capable of opening up lanes consistently for running backs.
- Thirdly, that NFL team must boast a balanced or run centric offensive playbook.
While the name of the modern NFL is the passing game, some teams continue to boast a strong rushing presence. Perhaps one team that has maintained a strong rushing presence despite the NFL trend to focus on a passing-centric playbook is the Baltimore Ravens. And right now, the Ravens are shopping for RB help after losing running back J.K. Dobbins for the season
Is Akers a solid option? At least one NFL analyst thinks so:
I tend to agree. The Ravens are a strong organization that is more than equipped to rein in Akers sometimes-problematic attitude. And their offense is certainly set up to keep feeding the football to running backs. Could the Raven trade for Akers? Perhaps, but we have more to consider.
