Marcus Peters could very well find himself right back in Baltimore in 2023.
The door isn’t closed on the Baltimore Ravens re-signing cornerback Marcus Peters despite the team recently adding defensive back Rock Ya-Sin, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
While the move clearly impacts the odds of Peters returning, Ravens HC John Harbaugh stressed that they are not closing the door on Peters returning to Baltimore at some point.
“I would say no,” Harbaugh says when asked if the Ya-Sin sign eliminates the possibility of them adding more help at the position such as Peters, via NFL.com. “I don’t think you ever really close the door on any personnel move. Whoever it might be. You’d probably ask me about Marcus (Peters) and whatever other corners are out there. You don’t close the door on good players and good people, you just see how it goes.”
Peters, a three-time Pro Bowler, and two-time All-Pro, has been in the NFL since 2015. That is when he racked up a league-high eight interceptions for the Kansas City Chiefs.
He would then be traded to the Los Angeles Rams in 2018 before he was dealt to the Ravens in 2019. Months later, he would ink a three-year, $42 million extension.
Peters has totaled eight interceptions, 99 tackles, and 25 pass breakups in 37 games for Baltimore.
Last year, Peters returned from a torn ACL that forced him to miss all of 2021. The 30-year-old also missed three games but he did appear in 13 while recording 47 tackles, one sack, an interception, two forced fumbles, two recoveries, and six pass defenses.
Peters was able to return for the playoffs and amassed four tackles and one pass breakup in the team’s AFC Wild Card loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
As it currently stands, Marlon Humphrey and Ya-Sin will be the team’s starters at cornerback. Adding Peters back would give the Ravens even more depth at the position.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
