    Wonder who will be getting released (Kindle? Considine?) or IR'd (Considine?).

    I believe an upgrade over Considine. Physical guy who actually started quite a few games last year for New England (though their secondary was pretty bad last year).

    BmoreRavor, care to spot check my math there?
    Spotrac sucks as far as data goes. It used to be really bad, but they've recently picked up a lot of accurate information (wonder from where?!?!?), but they've still got a long way to go.

    Considine signed a 1-year, $825K deal, that included a $65K bonus. However, under the Minimum Salary Benefit rules (which allows teams to sign veteran players, but have them count cheaper), he only counts $605K ($540K, plus $65K). If released, the $65K will still count, but the $540K won't.

    Assuming Ihedigbo also signs a MSB deal, he will also count $540K, so it will be a wash.

    Thanks Ravor...basically, my point was that it's not like swapping one for the other would do much for cap space. There's really only restructuring to add cap space at this point.

    Yes, that and an injury settlment or two, which I would expect at some point.

    Saw some highlights on youtube. He reminds me of Bernard Pollard pre-Ravens. He's got nice size for a safety and between us, the Steelers, and Jets, we seem to be the few teams that still use these throwback safeties. I'm sure the Ravens will use him accordingly.

    Former Jet and Pat... my friends and I remember him because in Madden when he was running down the field (usually on kickoffs), the "I" looked funny. So we knew him as "The Digbo."
    If life hands you a lemon... throw it at somebody!!
