The Baltimore Ravens finally added a free-agent safety.

Is it Chris Clemons? Thomas DeCoud? How about Champ Bailey?

Stewart
Well, no. The Ravens agreed on a one-year deal with Darian Stewart. If you're wondering who this is, you're not alone.

Stewart is unlikely the Ravens' answer at safety. The Ravens want an athletic playmaker, and Stewart has one interception in four seasons with the St. Louis Rams. Last season, he started six games.

The addition of Stewart doesn't preclude the Ravens from signing another safety or taking one early in the draft.

Stewart gives the Ravens experience at safety, where the team has Matt Elam and a handful of former undrafted players.

He also has ties with Ravens secondary coach Steve Spagnuolo, who was the head coach with the Rams. So, the Ravens know exactly what they're getting with Stewart.

This signing gives the Ravens more veteran depth in the secondary. But you still have to wonder when the Ravens are really going to address the hole at free safety.
