    Re: Ravens - Pending Free Agents



    RFAs:

    BJ Sams - New - We learned just how valuable Sams was to us, he deserves the 2nd level tender.

    Brian Rimpf - Low - Rimpf is a valuable guard, but he probably won't command a contract on the market.

    Devard Darling - Non-tendered - Doesn't fit into our plans when he can't beat out Clarence Moore

    Clarence Moore - Low - Should be non-tendered, but the coaches love his height.


    UFAs:

    Adalius Thomas - Franchise - After you use the tag, start working 24-7 on a new contract

    Tony Pashos - Re-sign - All of us who dished Pashos, we admit we were wrong. He's no franchise T, but he's good and he's the best option we've got. Lock him up for 3 years.

    Jarret Johnson - re-sign - JJ is a versatile, tough nosed player. Bring him back for cheap

    Ovie Mughelli - re-sign - proved his worth this year

    Aubrayo Franklin - bye bye

    Musa Smith - re-sign - Sign Musa to a 1 or 2 year deal, let's see if he can get on the field and prove himself.

    Gerome Sapp - bye bye - Dawan is doing fine, we don't need him anymore

    Tim Johnson - re-sign for vet min - Tim Johnson did nothing, but we'll bring him back in for a look during TC

    Nick Luchey - re-sign for vet min - Look at during TC

    Alex Bannister - ? - Probably be brought back for TC?

    Why say goodbye to Gerome Sapp?

    We need a backup safety. He's a good one, and can play special teams. He's still young. I say hand on to him.

    Gotta keep Sapp, he's good for depth, on dime coverage, and special teams.

    We can draft depth at safety this year as well as at DT. This is why Sapp and Frank the Tank probably won't be back. I think Bannister and Tim Johnson make it back with minimum deals after June 1st.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    First ever regular season game at M&T - against the Steelers - Ravens lose 20-13 - thanks in no small part to 4 or 5 bad snaps from LeBel.

    It seemed like the Steeler were playing on a short field the entire game - and they were, thanks to LeBel (who was subbing for Brian Kinchen who had a bad back, IIRC).

    It was ugly, real ugly.

    Re: Ravens - Pending Free Agents

    Sapp and Franklin could be back, but IMO, they aren't that important anymore. That is, unless they sign for sensible deals, we can find equal talent for the same price elsewhere. it's not like Sapp did anything bad, but his biggest reason to be here was to push Dawan Landry and BJ Ward for that starting S spot. BJ isn't coming back and Dawan did an excellent job. Sapp is just ST and S depth now, which again we could get elsewhere.

    That said, I'm sure we'll bring him back for TC and make a decision as camp ends.
