Revans's Marlon Humphrey Signed 2-years Contract For $60m With Texas Longhorns Today



Nate Wiggins looks even better for Ravens after Marlon Humphrey’s hyped-up comments



The Baltimore Ravens were seemingly unsatisfied heading into the 2024 season with Marlon Humphrey and Brandon Stephens locked in as the two starting outside cornerbacks, as they used their No. 30 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft on Clemson cornerback Nate Wiggins.

Wiggins was selected due to his unmatched man coverage skill and premium speed (4.28 40-yard dash) for the position. While some may have been concerned about how Humphrey and the rest of the cornerback room would take this decision, No. 44 seems excited about his new teammate.

Wiggins’ speed was so impressive to Humphrey that he said he believed he was a better prospect than Iowa’s Cooper DeJean and Alabama’s Kool-Aid McKinstry. While Wiggins plays on the boundary during his Clemson career, Humphrey seems ready to mix and match corners to get the best on the field.

Humphrey mentioned that he, Wiggins, and Stephens have all played inside at various points in their pro careers, which could lead to one of them moving to that position for the 2024 season. This would be a selfless act from this tandem, as it could help Baltimore upgrade their immediate secondary while getting Wiggins valuable reps for the future.

The cornerback position is in a very precarious spot beyond this season. Humphrey could be a possible cap casualty due to his expensive deal and injury history, and Stephens will hit free agency. It seems unlikely that Baltimore will keep both of them when next offseason rolls around.

The Ravens seem to be investing a ton in their secondary lately, as they also picked Iowa State cornerback T.J. Tampa (whom many expected to be selected in the first two rounds) to serve as purely puside cornerback. The losses of Geno Stone and Ronald Darby in free agency have been addressed.

Baltimore may have one of the best secondaries in the league next season. On top of Humphrey and Wiggins emerging as a possible 1-2 punch outside for years to come, Baltimore will also roll out arguably the best safety combination in the league between Kyle Hamilton and Marcus Williams.

While some may have believed that DeJean and McKinstry were better prospects, both of them are smaller players who are inferior athletes when compared to Wiggins. Humphrey knows as well as anyone what this defense needs, and he thinks Wiggins is the missing link.
