A representative for C.J. Mosley said he has been told that Baltimore will not use its franchise tag on the Ravens' linebacker, per a league source. Mosley expected to be an unrestricted free agent, without a tag.

 

Smart move.  He is not worth that kind of money.

They want to see what the market value is for him. That will determine if they make an offer.

“Some of C.J. Mosley’s Ravens teammates believe both he and Suggs could be headed to the Cardinals …”

This would be costly, likely around $20-25 million for the two players, but would immediately address two of the bigger needs for the Cardinals.

 

 

 

Get them comp picks.

Nice!  We play Az at home this year.  It could be fun watching Suggs and CJ chasing Lamar around M & T :).

Source: The #AZCardinals are expected to sign former #Ravens pass-rusher Terrell Suggs. Back home where he went to college.

 
 

Ravens officials sound like they were taken by surprise by Suggs informing them that he was signing elsewhere. They believed that he would ultimately come back. Suggs had talked about wanting to play his whole career in Baltimore.

 
235
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Terrell Suggs informed the Ravens he will be moving on to another club. Some of his teammates have mentioned Arizona as a possible landing spot

 

 

Get that comp pick.  BTW I said yrs ago that the Ravens should have traded Suggs to Zona for a huge haul.

This has to be a business money decision for Suggs.

My guess is the Ravens offered him something around the vet minimum and Suggs ego can't handle that.

He lives in Arizona....played college ball there...so let him finish out with a few snaps there.

Welcome our next man up - Ken Young.   He isn't the face of the franchise......yet.

Someone will step up.

The #Packers are expected to bring in a huge addition, bringing in former #Ravens edge rusher Za'Darius Smith, sources say. They tried to trade for him a few years ago, are in prime position to sign him now.

Maybe one more comp pick.

Man, the cupboard is becoming bare- both O and D.
I trust DeCosta will hit this draft out of the park.

Regardless, itll be a younger, rebuilding team for sure.
Lots of new faces in new places.

The Bills are adding more than old running backs to help quarterback Josh Allen.

According to Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio, the Bills are signing Ravens wide receiver John Brownto a three-year, $27 million deal, which includes $11.7 million in guarantees.

 

 

 

Looks like Brown is gone too.

All fans can see this time of the year is who the team is losing. So you naturally feel like the Ravens are losing and getting weaker.

It's scary.

And a decent wait to see how they fill the holes.

Just remember....you have to pass on matching this offer....

 

 

The Ravens have reportedly lost one of their young defensive anchors, as inside linebacker C.J. Mosley has signed a massive five-year, $85 million deal with the New York Jets, per multiple reports.

That’s an average of $17 million per year with $51 million guaranteed....https://www.baltimor...-deal-with-jets

 

Have to say good_bye and good luck.

Why would anyone be upset to lose Bell in FA.  One he is a late 20s RB.   Two he has been dinged up from time to time.  Three he has been susp a few times and the next will be long term.  Four he is to damned expensive and this team is rebuilding.
