The Baltimore Ravens have had great talent in their secondary over the course of their franchise history. From all of the players they’ve had such as Ed Reed, Chris McAlister and so many others, the team has been known to find quality playmakers at both the cornerback and safety positions.

In an article published by Brent Sobleski of Bleacher Report, he named one player each NFL team should consider trading before the 2022 season. When it came to Baltimore, Sobleski believed the team should consider trading away safety Chuck Clark. When explaining why, Sobleski said the team’s No. 14 overall draft pick in 2022, safety Kyle Hamilton, will get quite a few snaps on multiple different coverage packages in the secondary.

“But the team did draft Kyle Hamilton when he unexpectedly fell to this year’s 14th overall pick. Hamilton is a defensive chesspiece who’s capable of playing all over the field. The Ravens’ defensive staff will find ways to get him snaps. He may receive multiple big nickel looks with Clark and Marcus Williams also on the field.”

While Hamilton can’t guard the secondary alone from the safety position, Baltimore signed former New Orleans Saints safety Marcus Williams in free agency, who is expected to receive a lot of playing time. With younger players like safeties Brandon Stephens and Geno Stone looking to find a way in the rotation, it may not be out of question for the team to trade away Clark, even though head coach John Harbaugh told reporters he expected Clark to be on the team during the 2022 season.

Whatever the Ravens decide to do with Clark this season, he has been a key contributor in the secondary for years. If the safety finds himself on another club in 2022, he will be missed by many in the Baltimore organization both on and off of the field.
