Packers and Ravens Do a Deal for Safety-CB Derrick Martin

The National Football Post reports on a deal between the Packers and Ravens:

The Baltimore Ravens have traded safety-cornerback Derrick Martin to the Green Bay Packers, according to a league source. The terms of the compensation haven’t been disclosed, but it’s likely a 2010 late-round conditional draft pick. An athletic former sixth-round draft pick from Wyoming, Martin drew praise from Ravens coach John Harbaugh for his consistency with Harbaugh predicting he had a good chance to make the 53-man roster.

    The surprises to me in ascending order were:
    5)J. Meredith, 4)R. Martin, 3)B. Brohm,
    2)T. Sutton and 1)A. Smith. With Meredith, he is considered a “project,” currently not ready for prime time and I’d imagine the brain trust would like him on the practice squad, assuming he clears waivers. With Ruvell Martin, I can only believe they thought Brett Swain was overall better as a total team player, which includes special teams. Ruvell will be snapped off waivers by some team (Baltimore or sooner)
    tomorrow morning. With Brian Brohm, I have to believe, the head coach and GM felt it didn’t make sense to have a 3rd string qb with a cap hit of $2+ million. You understand this is a business and to date he’s improving, but, in hindsight, wasn’t worth a second round selection. With Ty Sutton, this had to be a tough cut, as he played quite well and showed savy and some nice moves. This had to come down to, do we keep all three fbs or only two and keep Sutton. The biggest surprise to me was Anthony Smith being cut and keeping Underwood and Rouse. I like all three players, but, thought Smith outplayed both, was a superior player from a hitting, tackling and ball-hawking analysis.

    There has to be something we are not aware of in the Smith cut. I thought they may cut Bigby since he has almost no speed or coverage skills. Its hard to believe Rouse was not cut since he gives up multiple big plays and is just not an adept tackler. Peprah is dependable and decent on special teams but is constantly hurt. I hope D. Martin pans out because this group was weak even with Smith. SS should be a day 1 priority in next years draft along with O-tackle.
