Ravens corner Cary Williams won a Super Bowl this year, and it could not have happened at a better time for him. The 6'1, 190 lbs corner will hit free agency when the new league begins March 12th, and he is looking to cash in.

Per the Baltimore Sun, one of the places that might offer the former 7th round pick out of Washburn said cash is the Indianapolis Colts. Writer Mike Preston offers us this bit of info in his column:

Cornerback Cary Williams played well last season, but the Ravens have so much young talent in the secondary that Williams is expendable, and like Reed, he will probably be pursued by Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano, the Ravens' former defensive coordinator.

"Reed" in that sentence refers to Ed Reed, the future Hall of Fame safety who, like Williams, won his first Super Bowl in 2013.

Preston is yet another member of the established media who seems to think that Colts head coach Chuck Pagano will push hard for some soon-to-be former Ravens to get signed to his roster. It remains to be seen if general manager Ryan Grigson is on board with this, though Grigson has stated multiple times that he and Pagano are "of two minds."

Another potential free agent acquisition from the Ravens could be outside linebacker Paul Kruger. Our own Evan Sidery has a free agent profile of Kruger here.
