    Exactly. They Ravens don't save his whole cap value because of the dead money but they still save $2 million so it ends up in the Ravens favor this year.

    I don't know if this turns into the appreciation thread but I'll put it here anyway. Thanks Matt. Represented well on and off the field. Besides that it can only help towards facilitating Joe's deal.

    Re: Birk Retiring

    I wonder if Birk would have any interest in coaching?

    I'd love for them to part with Andy Moeller and have Birk be Juan Castillo's assistant.

    Re: Birk Retiring

    class act and I will always be grateful for his contributions here. Remember when he played the whole year with a gash on the bridge of his nose that opened up every game? Tough, smart guy and I wish him the best in retirement.

    This is just the first move for a team that will look a lot different next year

    Now that would be a perfect fit in my opinion. Someone who is already close and familiar with the OL schemes and personnel. He's already mentioned frequently in the past how much he loves being here

    Class act, great player for us. I was amazed at how well he played this year, since last year it pretty much looked like he was close to done. Really was a driving force on this Super Bowl team, and deserves a lot of credit for that. Sad to see him go, but I recall him saying he hardly ever got hurt, didn't even tape before games, etc., so perhaps a wise move to go out on top, and healthy.

    Thank, you Matt! You're a class act and a great role model...something that can't always be said for NFL players. Enjoy retirement; you've more than earned it!!

    Thanks Matt!!! What a great career, and I am so happy you got your ring here in Baltimore!

    Enjoy the time with your family!

    Seems like Birk could be a good coach one day. I wonder if he'll go down that road.

    Probably Yanda, but I see no reason why Gino can't. He seems like a pretty intelligent guy.
