The Baltimore Ravens have wound their way through the offseason replacing a string of aging veterans with younger talent.
Brandon Lloyd and Austin Collie still are out there, along with Randy Moss, Laurent Robinson, Deion Branch and Jabar Gaffney. The glorious Chaz Schilens still is searching for work, while a completely desperate club could take a flier on Chad Johnson.
But not the Ravens. They're prepared to roll with Jacoby Jones opposite Smith, with a combination of Deonte Thompson, David Reed, Tandon Doss and LaQuan Williams fighting for snaps. Baltimore's faith in Jones is beguiling. He isn't Boldin, and neither is anyone else on the roster -- at least, not yet.
