Ravens Sign Safety Hamlin

Just a week after working out multiple defensive backs to add to the roster, including Ken Lucas and Walt Harris, the Baltimore Ravens have reached a one-year deal with safety Ken Hamlin.

Hamlin, who stands at 6-2 209 pounds, was a starter for Dallas the past three years, and played in Seattle from 2003-2006.  Over his career, Hamlin has made 14 interceptions, forced 5 fumbles, and has made one Pro Bowl.

This signing gives the Ravens more depth at a very depleted secondary.  Ed Reed is rehabbing his hip which just underwent surgery. Reed’s backup, Haruki Nakamura broke his ankle last season against the Browns. The team also has two corners who are coming back from knee injuries, Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb, who both started games last year. Although all signs point to Ed Reed returning to the team this year, he still has not made an announcement as to whether or not he will retire. If he does retire, Hamlin will most likely step in and become the starter. If Reed does return and somehow gets injured, he has a solid veteran backup.

There is still a possibility that the Ravens bring in one more veteran defensive back, most likely a corner, but nothing has been said yet.
