    Forgotten X Factors Coming Off IR in the Secondary

    I don't know if any of you have almost totally forgotten about Tavon Young and Elliot the way I have.

    Young can take a great secondary and make it elite if he comes back healthy. None of the replacements could cover the slot quite like him. He's also a playmaker. I wonder if he is a factor leading decisions on keeping some in the secondary or releasing them. Hope he comes back at 100.

    Elliot is such a question mark. The guy has flashed serious skills but ended up.on IR both seasons. Not this year, but hopefully he ends up helping the Ravens replace an overpaid Earl.

    I would say that for Elliott not Tavon. He just signed a three year extension. Not sure the contract break down but I would imagine hes safe for at least the next two seasons....

    Tavon is safe through 2021. $5M dead money if he is cut next NFL season.

    Earl is not overpaid. And Elliot cannot "help" replace him - either he does or does not by himself. In other words, Elliot would be a downgrade. I like Elliot but he is not at all proven as a FS and, he really has to stay healthy this year, whatever he does.

    I expect they would draft a candidate in 2021 to eventually replace Earl, e.g. when Lamar gets paid. There is too much money commited to the secondary to go again to FA for that.

    Young is safe this year but cutting him in 2021 would save $3 million against the cap

    Guys I swear this is Elliot's year (Repeat x3).

    Young's neck might be thrashed. Playing on borrowed time.

    I agree that Elliott should get his shot this year - up to him...

    Doesn't save him from being considered a bad investment if he gets hurt again and we would likely be considering a replacement at that point.

    Earl isn't overpaid.

    I expect Young to perform, but I have zero expectations for Elliott. Anything from him is a bonus. Ideally I'd like to see him take Carr's role from last season, but he's gotta stay healthy. He's 0 for 2 on that, so nobody inside or outside the organization should be counting on him to provide anything IMO.

    Like Seraph said, Tavon has had a serious neck injury and I know from experience how devastating they can be. Hopefully he didn't suffer any loss of strength, mobility and feeling throughout the hands and arms, critical for a DB.

    Several of the members have corrected me on Earl's money. I will listen to you guys as many of you are well schooled in that area.

    Elliot situation has come down to what you said, anything is a bonus now. I see so much ability in him, but you have to be on the field to show it.
