Cary Williams suspended by NFL for 2 games

More fantastic news out of Baltimore: Cary Williams, a Ravens cornerback, has been suspended for the first two games of the season without pay after violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Williams' violation occurred while he was with the Tennessee Titans, and Ravens' GM Ozzie Newsome acknowledged that, 'We’ve been aware of this since before we signed Cary.'

His agent, Marc Lillibridge told Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times that Williams went through the full appeals process and that, "Although we’re disappointed we did not win the appeal, we respect the league office’s decision. Cary just wants to focus on the training camp with the Ravens and the remaining games in the regular season."

Wililams isn't considered a star in the secondary by any means, although Wilson does point out he's "drawn praise from the coaching staff during offseason minicamps."

The bigger issue is that the Ravens' secondary -- a primary concern heading into training camp , particularly with the health of Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb being a big issue -- is suddenly even weaker, especially with Ed Reed's situation not appearing to near any sort of resolution soon .
