    Someone posted on this forum a few days ago on rumors of Ellerbe's asking price (6yr, $50M). Anyone else hear this?
    Definately a little rich for me.

    What I seen was 25-30 million.

    Ravens | Dannell Ellerbe may be looking for lucrative deal

    Sun, 03 Mar 2013 11:28:03 -0800

    There is speculation that Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent LB Dannell Ellerbe is looking for a multi-year deal that is worth $25 million to $30 million. The Ravens may allow Ellerbe to leave if he is looking for that type of contract because there are several linebackers available in the draft.

    I think a deal similar to the one the Steelers gave Lawrence Timmons is what Ellerbe is targetting. Honestly, Ellerbe should be able to get a deal like this one from the Ravens or another team.

    Lawrence Timmons ILB

    8/23/2011: Signed a six-year, $50 million contract. The deal included an $11 million signing bonus. 2013: $750,000 (+ $7.125 million "signing" bonus), 2014: $6.75 million, 2015: $7.5 million, 2016: $8.75 million, 2017: Free Agent

    Re: Free Agent Thread:

    I don't think Ellerbe is goin to get that much money for 3 reasons:

    1. He has a long history of injuries including this year.
    2. This was his first relevant year, never mind his first good year.
    3. The MLB position continues to be undervalued by teams and thus are not paid as much as they are worth.

    Re: Free Agent Thread:

    I've heard that several teams could be targeting Ellerbe...

    New Orleans, Atlanta, Philadelphia (who is switching to a 3-4), I'm sure Cleveland could be interested (Ellerbe lined up beside Jackson would be a really nice combo), the Giants, Houston, and now apparently Buffalo.

    I think Ellerbe is going to have a lot of suitors.

    Also add these to your list of possible free agents.

    Larry Grant ILB San Fran
    Deandre Levy ILB Detroit (cover linebacker)
    Wallace Gilberry DE Cincy (pass rush specialist)
    Knighton only had weight issues outside of season. In season, he buckled down and dominated. This dude is a LOT stronger than Cody.

    That will definitely increase his price.

    I can see Philly going after a lot of our FA's due to their switch to a 3-4 defense. Ellerbe and Kruger would be perfect fits for a team looking to build around two solid starters.

    The Saints and the Browns are switching to a 3-4 as well. Supposedly Buffalo is going to run a hybrid too.

    The dolphins just placed on the franchise tag on Randy Starks which allows Sean Smith test free agency unrestricted. Not sure if his name was thrown around but my guess is that he would be too expensive, not a good fit for us or both?

    Ed Reed says he really can't see himself playing anywhere else. Good to hear, but do we have any money left to give him what he wants?

    That's pretty consistent with what Ozzie said at their year end press conference, that based on Ed's body language he really wants to be here. I think at the end of the day he will take a slight pay cut to remain here.
