Ravens “news” is sometimes a byproduct of agent spin

drew-rosenhaus

To those who believe that the Ravens suddenly have some of the Orioles’ stink on them and teams no longer want to play here STOP! The Ravens are generally viewed as one of the best teams to play for by the players. There’s no stink on the team. No Syd Thrift Confederate Money.

Here’s the inside skinny…

The Ravens have about $2M left under the cap. Malcom Floyd wasn’t coming here unless they extended Haloti, ASSUMING THE RAVENS WERE GENUINELY INTERESTED.

Secondly, contrary to what has been reported, Mason was NOT given an offer by the Ravens. When I asked if they (the Ravens) were surprised that Mason accepted the low offer by the Jets I was told, "No, a low offer is better than no offer."

Many writers have contacts with agents and they get their info from them. These agents can, will and do play the writers to gain leverage for their clients. As I was reminded the agents ALWAYS have an angle to benefit themselves (see video below).

Same thing with Jerricho Cotchery – Ravens have no interest, that’s just more agent spin.

The Ravens are committed to getting younger. Expect some previously relative unknowns to emerge in 2011.

Lastly, don’t believe everything you read!

Except this of course!
