Re: The impact of franchising Flacco...who could be lost
Would it behoove this team to possibly extend a couple RFAs or under-contract players with big cap numbers in 2013?
Specifically I'm thinking of Dennis Pitta, Art Jones, and Michael Oher. I know the Ravens had opened extension talks with Oher at some point recently, he has a cap number north of 4m if his incentives kick in (and I assume they have). He isn't very good at LT, but perhaps his bad performance this year gives us leverage to buy low and extend him with the hopes of playing him at LG or RT? I'm sure they could get his number below 4m, even if it would only save a few million.
Pitta and Jones are unfortunately guys that the Ravens would be buying high on, but I assume both would get 1st round tenders, which aren't terribly cheap, and they KNOW they've got to lock those guys up (Pitta especially).
They extended Webb as an RFA and I thought that could have been a sign of Ozzie growing wise to the idea of re-signing guys early. Could they repeat that idea this year?
