Aaron Wilson is on the Fan, Suggs will be Tagged Thursday morning..Take 10.2 mil off that Cap #. Plus the fact that Suggs has made it public that he does not want to be franchised.

 

 

Next: Ray gets the big payday, maybe we keep Jason Brown, and Scott and Leonard are probably goners !

Not a big deal yet, IMO. Ozzie said they will continue to try to work on a long-term deal if they have the franchise Suggs.

If the Ravens can't reach a new deal with Terrell Suggs by Thursday, they will use the franchise tag on the Pro Bowl linebacker-defensive end, general manager Ozzie Newsome said today.

 

Although the Ravens are planning to use the tag on Suggs for a second straight season, the team would keep him away from free agency with the hope of signing him to a new contract.

 

"You have to look at it as an opportunity for us to enter into a long-term deal," Newsome said.

I found this bit interesting from the article

 

Newsome also announced that the Ravens have reached new deals with backup defensive linemen Dwan Edwards and Brandon McKinney.

 

That's a lot of defensive line backups. I would keep an eye on Kelly Gregg, I am not optimistic.

We've had problems for years with teams just busting up the gut on us and steamrolling whoever is playing center. We finally have a center that can hold down the fort and we're going to let him walk! You gotta be kidding me.

 

I agree about Brown. If he isn't re-signed, I will be severely disappointed. Best center we've had since Mitchell.

Losing Brown isn't the end of the world, guys. If the dude wants his money, we sure as hell better not break the bank for him.

 

Wrong, the key to success, is that front line, they are coming up on 3 years of playing together thats when you know you have a unit, you start picking them apart and we'll be in trouble.

Brown just took over at center last season. Yes it would be nice for him to stick around. The rest of the line is young, Joe was a rookie last year, these guys haven't even started to grow yet. A new center is not going to hurt.

Brown handled Hainesworth...that's how good he is.

Lock him up and you have a very good O line for years to come. Give him guard money....what's the big deal considering what he brings to the line and this team. He's intelligent, a leader, good person

excellent lineman...got to have him.

 

The Ravens need offense because I think the D will decline some....Flacco needs to stay upright and the Ravens must be able to run the ball. It all starts and ends with the line.

 

 

As for Suggs....$10 million dollars will heal his feelings. That's a lot of love.

Suggs doesn't care about the tag. Not like McAlister did.

 

We Tag him, he will not show up until the last week of camp.

 

 

You're right crav...hell...I'd be pissed too if I had $8 million dollars guaranteed...probably be depressed for a month or two...
