McGahee for Cromartie: Fair deal?

Willis McGahee is a player who delivered in a backup role in ’09 yet many believe that No. 23 will NOT be wearing a Ravens’ jersey next season. Some think that McGahee could be a match for the San Diego Chargers who just happen to have a player that could be a fit a need for the Ravens.

Cornerback Antonio Cromartie is a gifted athlete who has a reputation for playing soft and for not being a very good team player. Consequently his name is often bantered about when discussing current Chargers who could be on the move.

Now that Ladainian Tomlinson has been jettisoned by the Bolts, these talks could heat up and a swap is possible.

Possible, but not likely…I checked in with Kevin Acee who covers the Chargers for the Union-Tribune. Acee told me that the Chargers might make that deal if it was the best deal out there.

However he added that the Chargers would likely prefer a back younger than McGahee and/or a draft pick for Cromartie, a player Acee described as “a starting corner who had a pretty good season. He hasn't had the picks, and there have been high-profile blunders. But he shut guys down too.”

Good Cromartie

Cromartie (No. 31) not exactly playing like a Raven...

..Having read this post..and thought about it for a while. I say NO! Willis was tremendous in the RED zone this year. The Ravens can do better! Antonio had his moments, but I am not enamored with the thought of him playing for the Ravens.!!!!
