    We need to draft Bacardi* Rambo. The name is too awesome to pass up. We will never win another game ever, ever again if we pass on this guy.

    * renamed

    Louis Delmas is a good player, but he's even more of an injury risk than Kenny Phillips, and Phillips is the superior player. I'd be happy with either of those guys, though. Safety is IMO the Ravens' #1 offseason priority. Unless they re-sign Ed Reed, which I don't see happening, they literally don't have anybody with NFL experience at the position. That's not true for any of the other holes on the roster... even at OL and ILB, at least they have guys with NFL experience who could step in if all else fails.
    I keep forgetting about Kenny Phillips.

    I'd love for the Ravens to pick him up. Good player.

    Any additions we make are likely to be cheap vets.

    We are going to struggle just to re-sign Ellerbe and Kruger.
    I previously thought that the Ravens were pretty likely to go out and sign a FA defender this offseason... maybe not a big-contract type of signing, but somebody who could step in and immediately start. Kenny Phillips, Daryl Smith, and Terrence Knighton were all guys I had on a short list.

    But now that it really looks clear how dire our cap situation is going to be... I doubt we go out and sign anybody from off the market unless Ozzie works some serious magic. Ellerbe and/or Kruger, maybe... but they might need to make some tough cuts to get even ONE of those guys under contract in addition to Flacco, and they might not even be able to get one of them much less both.

    At this point, it looks likely to me that this team won't be signing anybody but veteran-minimum guys outside of our own guys, IF we can even do that. Realistically they're going to need not less than 2 or 3 rookies from their upcoming draft class to come in and immediately start. That's part of the reason why this draft class is one of the most important in Ravens' history... although thankfully we have more than enough picks to make a real impact.

    Remember all those amazing stories about Te'o having to overcome the death of his grandmother and girlfriend?

    Well, apparently Te'o made up the entire story of his dead girlfriend ....

    Does this hurt his draft stock?

    That's just a whole new level of creepy right there.

    Hear that? It's the sound of Ozzie taking Te'o's name off the big board.

    To be fair, he probably had move his name back to late first early 2nd round as it is after the Alabama game.
