, Ty Montgomery was having a hard time familiarizing himself with his new surroundings."I've never spent any time in Maryland before. We are in Maryland, right?" Montgomery said. "This whole part of the country kind of throws me for a loop. I don't know if I'm in Virginia or what."Well, he know he's not in Green Bay anymore.The Packers traded the running back/kick returner for a seventh-round pick Tuesday, and Montgomery was given a quick tour of the Ravens training complex on Wednesday before talking to the media and heading out to practice.The Ravens (4-4) hope Montgomery 鈥?a 2015 third-round pick out of Stanford 鈥?can boost an unproductive running game that ranks 24th in the NFL at 96.6 yards per game and second-to-last with 3.6 yards per carry."He's one of those guys who can do a variety of things," quarterback Joe Flacco said. "We'll see what we can do this week in practice, how he progresses, and we'll get to see a little bit about what he's made of close and personal."If Montgomery learns the offense quickly enough, perhaps he can make a contribution in Sunday's important AFC North matchup against the division-leading Pittsburgh Steelers (4-2-1).Then again, coach John Harbaugh isn't quite ready to label Montgomery a savior for a team stuck in a two-game losing streak."You're making too much of it if you think it's a big story," Harbaugh said. "It's a good player, we're adding him, we're excited about it http://www.ravenscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-alex-collins-jersey
, to whatever degree it can help us."Montgomery had 26 carries for 105 yards and a touchdown in seven games with Green Bay, along with 15 catches for 170 yards.His last play with the Packers was one that arguably stood out more than any other. With Green Bay trailing the Los Angeles Rams 29-27 in the final two minutes, Montgomery fumbled a kickoff return after being told by coaches to take a touchback if the ball went into the end zone.That was not a topic he wanted to address during his first few hours in Maryland."I don't want to be rude, but I just don't even want to talk about it anymore," Montgomery said. "I will say, I was ready put all that in the past. So I guess it's going to turn into a fresh start, being on a new team."Alex Collins leads the Ravens with 358 yards rushing and rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson is second with 129. Baltimore has just one run of more than 20 yards, a 22-yard scramble by Jackson in Tennessee.Maybe Montgomery can help, but for eight weeks now the Ravens have been trying to get the running game in sync."We've just got to continue grinding," Flacco said. "If we trust our backs and trust our guys up front to continue to what they've been doing and maybe clean up a couple things here and there, then hopefully a couple of those (runs) will start hitting."If that happens, the Ravens just might get on a roll."That can change things like that Brandon Williams Jersey
," Flacco said, snapping his fingers. "Just getting a couple of those chunks, you get rolling and get defenses on their heels a bit, and they worry about it a little bit more." The Ravens have fielded one of the better secondaries in the NFL for the past couple of seasons, which is interesting considering some of the issues they had in the defensive backfield in prior years. The turnaround, unsurprisingly, came thanks to substantial investment.In 2015, they re-signed Jimmy Smith long term and in 2016 they drafted Tavon Young. The next year they signed Brandon Carr in free agency and snagged Marlon Humphrey with their first pick in that year’s draft.It didn’t stop there either, as Maurice Canady was a late pick who’s worked out fairly well when healthy, and they again used a fourth rounder on Anthony Averett in 2018. It’s paid off as corner is arguably the team’s strongest position right now.With that in mind, let’s take a look at how the position could potentially change or even be improved heading into 2019:Current depth chart:鈥?LCB: Brandon Carr (2019 cap hit = $7,000 Cheap Joe Flacco Jersey

, the only question is of course surrounding salaries. Smith’s really stands out considering his suspension to start the year and some shaky play after he made his return.At age 30 and possibly heading for a decline thanks to his physical playing style (PFF has him as an above average player with a 65.3 grade) it’s worth wondering if the front office isn’t interested in continuing to ride the Smith roller coaster at such a high cost. Whether that means he’s cut, restructured, or simply starts playing up to his salary, something is going to have to change. To his credit he snagged two picks in Week 17 so hopefully that’s a sign of things to come for him.The other salary to look at is of course Brandon Carr. The stalwart veteran had another solid if unspectacular season, and the only question is whether the consummate pro’s salary is ultimately worth it.He’ll be 33 next season and grades out as above average (71.5) on PFF. His seven million dollar hit is certainly a decent chunk but is on the lower end of the team’s starters.This decision will come down to what the front office is thinking, but Carr has been a steady presence in Baltimore’s secondary for the last two years. Stability may be as good a reason as any to keep him around.Outside of those two, it’s hard not to get excited about the rest of this crew. Humphrey is a beast, Young and Canady have proven they can play, and Averett was seen as a steal this past year.Let us know what you think of this group in the comments below.
