Ravens Central

The Kickoff

March 29, 2007|By MIKE PRESTON

Early word from a Ravens insider, and a very good one, is that Samari Rolle will be the starting cornerback when training camp opens regardless of any possible draft picks or free agents.

After Rolle's poor performance last season, the Ravens believed he regained his confidence by the end of the season, and that he was only partially to blame for some of the long balls he gave up. Of course, safety Ed Reed blew several assignments while failing to give Rolle support over the top. I can understand Rolle still being the starter, but I'd have someone challenging him for the starting job as well.
