    I guess it always comes down to money, but I'd think Vonta is also looking at what kind of scheme he fits in, and where he can get playing time and have success. Maybe he wants to find a place where they run the ball all the time and he'll get more reps. Maybe he prefers the stretch running scheme he's run in Houston and Baltimore. He could take a little less money for the right role. Or, he could just hold out for the biggest offer.

    Presumably it's the same thing. The team whose scheme is the best fit for him is going to make the biggest offer. But perhaps not. You see dumb teams all the time signing the wrong guy for their scheme. Jets being the biggest offenders off the top of my head.

    Perhaps, just a coincidence, but yesterday, the Ravens released on UDFA WR, which opened a roster spot.

    Usually, they wouldn't do so unless they had someone they needed/wanted that roster spot for. Releasing Hines was also a bit odd, since they carried him from the last OTA until yesterday and nothing (seemingly) has happened since then that would give them reason to release him. If they didn't think much of him back then, I would think they would have likely already released him.

    So, may totally mean nothing, but.......

    I felt the same, looks like they didn't want to bring the man in, start the assimilation camp process and end it a day later, so they save him (and themselves) the grief and give him a window to go elsewhere in another camp.

    Agree, the FO has its eyes on someone....
    If it is Vonta, remains to be seen how much of that 2 million offer has shifted into incentives, gut says he will sign for over 1 mil base, maybe 1.4 mil, 2 mil seems high and really hamstringing any future moves if needed.

    Agree.

    This was classic Ozzie letting him test the Free Agent Waters.

    He's not getting any action on the market. I get the feeling most of the rumors about the Dolphins/Giants etc are agent created. If anything, he's looking at vet minimum or slightly above deals elsewhere.

    Id imagine the Ravens offer (Reportedly of $2M?) remains probably slightly higher than it should be...

    I'm a little mixed about this. Should the Ravens have given their offer a shelf life, letting Leach know that after a certain period of time the contract would be lower, or should Ozzie's original offer stand? IMO the player, as well as his original team, should bear some financial responsibility... Bc

    I'd like to seem him back. With Ray, Ed, and Pollard gone, we need guys who "play like a Raven," meaning, IMHO, "smash mouth."

    Leach just posted a pic of himself on FB getting a pedicure "before he reports to camp". I'm thinking he's back
