I'm going to guess that we'll hear about players agreeing to terms with teams starting tomorrow.

    Wonder how significant. I still have concerns about how he's going to perform going forward once he has gotten his money.

    It sure would be nice to get him signed but I don't see them over paying him if another team wants to throw crazy money

    It is quite possible we start next season without Ray, Jameel, Kruger, and Ellerbe.

    That is a scary thought.

    I'd like to get Ellerbe back but if someone throws ridiculous money at him he's gone. He's played well, but I'd feel better about him if he completed one year where he played all 16 games. If he's gone, ILB has to be the #1 concern to fill.

    All defensive players; and don't forget Reed and Williams. I find it amazing reading a lot of posts wanting to target offensive players where we return just about everyone and they played well last year. Get a LT on offense and retool the defense.

    I think they'll get Ellerbe under wraps.

    Then they'll go out and sign Mike Wallace, Greg Jennings, Jake Long, Sebastian Vollmer, all while being able to keep Kruger and Ed Reed.






    ...in all seriousness, I don't know if the Ravens will target anyone in free agency. I think they'll wait until all of the big "wow" deals blow over. I think they'll make an effort to keep Ellerbe and then kind of sit back and watch.

    like they always do. keep their key FAs and wait for the dust to settle and make some under the radar signings that pay big dividends. This years a little different because they cant go after all their Key FAs but ellerbe is the last one that they will. I dont see much else happening myself. I dont think McKinnie is a priority although theyll be following him. Otherwise Id say Reed gets some attention from them but theyll let him test the market and come back with his best offer before making theirs.

    Oz never makes a big splash in FA. He'll try and retain as many players as possible, reload through the draft and try and find nuggets in FA that others overlooked.

    Idk about you, but I can see the Ravens re-signing all three of those guys eventually, they can make it happen by extending Boldin, cutting Leach, Williams, and Jameel.

    Best case scenario IMO, they get Ellerbe signed before the deadline, they let Reed and McKinnie test the market, then find out that they weren't offered all that much, and the Ravens are able to keep them. That's what I'm hoping for anyway.

    Im not sure they sign any of them really. I think Reed is the most retainable, followed by McKinnie, then Ellerbe. I hope Ellerbe signs a fair deal, but hes got the most value out of those 3 for sure. Reed going to have 3-4 suitors (NE, NO, Indy, & Us). Im not sure hes as high on our list of must have's as he will be on theirs.
