    We are under the cap, don't listen to Shefter lol. I think McKinnie gets signed to a 1/2 year deal again personally. Ryan McBean isn't under contract btw.

    I was for cutting Boldin. After the Super Bowl I hope they can extend him and bring down his cost. He is great in the slot. I also hope they keep Jones. I do wonder if Thompson can replace him.

    The Ravens really need to cut Leach and move away from the I formation. Flacco and Boldin were so much better when they were able to spread the field and get Boldin lined up against a LB in the slot. That does not happen in the I formation.

    I really hope they sign McKinnie to a two year deal at a reasonable price. I would also like them to bring back Ellerbe. Kruger is probably gone unless the Ravens can sign Joe and Franchise Kruger.

    And Wicked - I am with you. Nobody could blame Haloti. He has been an absolute beast but he has to consider his quality of life for the next 50 years.
    Ngata retiring would destroy the Ravens cap all by itself for next year. All of his remaining prorated signing bonus would accelerate onto next year's cap. I think Ngata plays out his current contract and then retires.

    Ngata isn't retiring, just stop the talk altogether about that.

    I know it was a big emotional moment but last night Reed sure said he was not retiring. He said he loves the game too much

    Do we know how badly his knee was hurt last night? That's what I'm talking about.

    They're calling it a sprain, but it could just as easily be an ACL/MCL.

    Did you not see him go down in the 3rd yesterday? He had an OL go shoulder first into his knee on Gore's TD run. It did not look pretty, and he quickly went from questionable to return to doubtful. I think it's a safe bet that it was a rather serious injury.

    I'm sure he'll play out his contract here, but based on the way he was talking earlier this year, it is food for thought.

    Like you said: would be a HUGE blow to the D.

    It would be a bad bad thing.

    I think he plays his contract out (2 more years? 3?), but the possibility certainly exists.

    Considering he's already talked about it and tony Lombardi said the threat is looming in the not to distance future, if he's done ligaments and needs surgery he could very well consider it

    I don't know. Here are the details for Ngata's contract. He is signed through the 2015 season, so for 3 more years. So, Ngata has yet to be paid $12.5 million of his $61 million contract. This would be similar to what J.O. did. Sign a big extension and then retire early after getting his guaranteed money. I respect Haloti too much to question him, but it would cripple the Ravens for next year.

    9/20/2011: Signed a five-year, $61 million contract. The deal contains $37.1 million guaranteed, including a $25 million signing bonus. 2012: $2.9 million (+ $10 million "signing" bonus), 2013: $4 million, 2014-15: $8.5 million, 2016: Free Agent

    If Ngata wants to retire but not fuck us can he just be on IR for two years or something?
