    McGahee is a Raven according to ESPN



    The Ravens and Bills agreed to a trade Thursday that will send running back Willis McGahee to Baltimore in exchange for the team's third and seventh-round picks in this year's draft, along with the Ravens' third-round pick in 2008, league sources tell ESPN.com's Michael Smith.

    McGahee a Raven

    According to ESPN.com's Michael Smith


    This years 3rd and 7th, and next year's 3rd for McGahee.


    No word on a contract extension.


    Check out espn.com


    I think its a steal. We didn't lose a 2nd rounder, and we stand to get some 3rd/4th rounders in compensatory picks for FA's we lost.

    I'd like to see the contract terms before I make a call on what kind of deal it is.

    If I were a Bills fan I would have wanted more than a very low third and seventh this season and third next. I'm optomistic that WM will have his best season as I think the Raven O-line is much better than Buffalos.

    That's allot to give up for a one year rental and I've never been a fan of Drew Rosenhaus.

    I think the price was relatively cheap for a young running back as talented as McGahee. We could have a top young RB locked up for years to come.

    Very exciting....not sure about 2 third round picks though. Oh well. Hopefully we'll get a 3rd round comp for AD next year.

    I keep coming back to McNair for a fourth and this exchange seems a bit rich. But I do think the Ravens are already counting on compensatory picks for this year and next so it seems ok at this point.

    Of course it all hinges on McGahee outperforming Jamal and the terms of the contract once they are announced.

    I agree that the real value of the deal hinges on the contract.

    I disagree that 2 3rds seems rich when comparing ti to McNair. First of all the Titans had to cut McNair, the Bills could of kept McGahee. Secondly, and more importantly, Willis is only 25 and has played just 3 NFL seasons. He is just entering his prime while McNair (although I love him) is in his twilight years.

    And to PurpleRulz, you are right about our struggles with 3rd rounders but totally off base with 4th rounders. After the 1st round I think the 4th round is the most consistently successful place for us. I wonder if there is correlation between the fact we do the best on the opening round of both day 1 and day 2. After those rounds I'm not sure, I want to say it was either the 6th or UDFAs.

    Okay. We have had recent success in the 4th with Jason Brown and Demetrius Williams, so I will give you that.

    As for this trade, the 3rd round pick is at the end of the round and pretty much a 4th. The 7th rounder is near the end and four moves from "Mr. Irrelevant." We have success with UDFAs and maybe, just maybe, there is some insight to what our comp picks will be in 2007 and 2008.

    Yet another thought is that we could be looking into making a trade to net a 3rd rounder. Who knows, but in Ozzie I Trust.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    Hartwell, J.J., Ovie, and Mulitalo were all 4th round picks as well.

    Re: McGahee a Raven

    Yeah, I don't know. I just don't like giving up two thirds for this guy, especially if his contract turns out to be outlandish. Maybe we haven't done that well in the third round over the years, but that tells me we are due for some blockbusters judging from the way the rest of the draft usually turns out for us. I just wish there was some way to know who the Ravens would have taken with the 92nd pick this year and wherever our pick will be next year, that would be the best way to judge the trade. However, I do believe in "In Oz We Trust", and I will so on this matter also. After all, he has a lot more inside information on all the parameters/ramifications of this deal than any of us. I know he wouldn't let himself be taken advantage of.
