    leach, I think the Ravens are very attractive to any FAs out there. Sure some will just go for the $$$, but quite a few want a championship in their NFL careers. Our boys "almost" got there in 2011, and won it in 2012. IMO that swings the "I want to win now" group in our favor... Bc

    Re: Free Agent Thread:

    shockingly, I can now see that the Ravens may not retain a single free agent of their own, apart from Flacco...

    Ellerbe and Kruger seem to be pricing themselves out. Kruger will get it, not so sure if Ellerbe will
    BMac could end up back here, but he's really a bottom of the pile type guy (not much upside, not much money) and will probably look for every dollar he can get
    Reed, who knows what the deal is with him
    Cary Williams has never even been mentioned as a potential stay. I think Ravens want to put Jimmy Smith and Corey Graham into bigger roles, and assume Webb will be healthy.

    Did I miss any?

    I think you are on point with this. At least we'll get some nice comp picks next year.

    The same Peter King who thought Flacco might end up being a Cleveland Brown this year?

    Granted, Ellerbe may end up being too expensive for the Ravens. We'll just have to wait and see.

    Thanks. I had seen a list of players that the Ravens had interviewed posted earlier that did not have Minter's name on it. I really think he would be a good fit for the Ravens defense, especially if he were to somehow fall into the second round.

    Hopefully, BUT, now we have to worry about guys we do sign...

    I don't think Ozzie sits pat and says "I'll take my 11 draft picks and build a kingdom". He's going to have to use free agency to add some pieces, and those are going to offset our losses in the comp pick formula.

    Someone posted on this forum a few days ago on rumors of Ellerbe's asking price (6yr, $50M). Anyone else hear this?
    Definately a little rich for me.

    What I seen was 25-30 million.

    Ravens | Dannell Ellerbe may be looking for lucrative deal

    Sun, 03 Mar 2013 11:28:03 -0800

    There is speculation that Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent LB Dannell Ellerbe is looking for a multi-year deal that is worth $25 million to $30 million. The Ravens may allow Ellerbe to leave if he is looking for that type of contract because there are several linebackers available in the draft.

    I think a deal similar to the one the Steelers gave Lawrence Timmons is what Ellerbe is targetting. Honestly, Ellerbe should be able to get a deal like this one from the Ravens or another team.

    Lawrence Timmons ILB

    8/23/2011: Signed a six-year, $50 million contract. The deal included an $11 million signing bonus. 2013: $750,000 (+ $7.125 million "signing" bonus), 2014: $6.75 million, 2015: $7.5 million, 2016: $8.75 million, 2017: Free Agent

    Re: Free Agent Thread:

    I don't think Ellerbe is goin to get that much money for 3 reasons:

    1. He has a long history of injuries including this year.
    2. This was his first relevant year, never mind his first good year.
    3. The MLB position continues to be undervalued by teams and thus are not paid as much as they are worth.

    Re: Free Agent Thread:

    I've heard that several teams could be targeting Ellerbe...

    New Orleans, Atlanta, Philadelphia (who is switching to a 3-4), I'm sure Cleveland could be interested (Ellerbe lined up beside Jackson would be a really nice combo), the Giants, Houston, and now apparently Buffalo.

    I think Ellerbe is going to have a lot of suitors.

    Also add these to your list of possible free agents.

    Larry Grant ILB San Fran
    Deandre Levy ILB Detroit (cover linebacker)
    Wallace Gilberry DE Cincy (pass rush specialist)
    Knighton only had weight issues outside of season. In season, he buckled down and dominated. This dude is a LOT stronger than Cody.

    That will definitely increase his price.

    I can see Philly going after a lot of our FA's due to their switch to a 3-4 defense. Ellerbe and Kruger would be perfect fits for a team looking to build around two solid starters.

    The Saints and the Browns are switching to a 3-4 as well. Supposedly Buffalo is going to run a hybrid too.
