Not a good move for Carter. He has almost no chance to make our roster with our RB depth.

Reed is probably the (slightly) better piece as he's at least a good returner when he can stay healthy, but I guess we thought he wasn't worth the meager extension we gave him. I'm guessing we save a tiny bit of cap in this trade.


After Rice and Pierce the quality of depth at RB isn't anything special. Allen, Berry, and Rainey are all perennial roster-bubble guys. I think Carter clearly has more talent than any of them. Which might not be saying a whole lot.


After Rice and Pierce, there probably won't be another RB on the 53 man roster. The team is going to keep two FBs, and will also want three TEs. Plus, they can't really afford to skimp on WRs.

There better damn well be a 3rd RB on the roster since Pierce is more than likely to be injured! I think Delone Carter will be the 3rd RB, without a doubt.

Agreed. I think we'll keep 2 FB's and 2 TEs, with Juice playing both roles as needed. I think we'll certainly keep 3 RBs on the team, with the 3rd RB playing mainly STs.

Colts fans -- did Carter play coverage unit for you all at all? I'd say Allen has the inside shot at staying on the roster due to his coverage ability, but if Carter can provide that on top of being a more solid RB option, he'll get the nod most likely.

Pierce is fine. If he wasn't then they might keep a 3rd RB. But otherwise, why bother? The only thing the Ravens' 3rd choice RB did last season was block on special teams. And Jerry Rosburg and John Harbaugh are both on record as saying that Kyle Juszczyk is doing very well in that role.

I think what SnA meant was that due to Pierce's style, he's likely to get banged up -- ie, he initiates contact rather than avoid it, he routinely tries to jump over people, etc. Due to that, it's a good idea to keep a 3rd RB on the roster in case he goes down.

What if Pierce goes down? In Practice or a game? Then what? We ride Ray Rice completely until he comes back? What happens if Ray Rice gets fatigued or banged up in a game? We just use Juice as our RB? No way. You keep 3 RB's no matter what.

Well that's fair enough. I'm not too keen on the idea of keeping five RB/FBs, though. Especially not if it might mean Furstenburg is cut. Because there's no way he clears waivers to be brought back on the PS. TEs appear to be at a premium this summer.

That's where I think that while Juice is technically a "FB", he'll be used more in an H-back/TE role to help fill the void of Pitta. He's most certainly not just a blocking FB.
