    Sean Smith is exactly the kind of CB that the Ravens like. He's 6'3 and 215. I doubt they'll be able to afford him if they can't afford Cary Williams.

    Do the Saints even have enough room to make an offer to Ellerbe?

    Was he the CB out of Utah a few years back? I remember wanting to draft him instead of Cody in the 2nd round.

    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.
    With Flacco signed, can we use the franchise tag on Ellerbe?

    My only concern with this is he STILL seems to be thinking the Ravens will be contacting him first. And we STILL seem to be thinking Ed's going to open negotiations with us. He's saying the right things, but this seems to be headed towards us waiting for him to bring us an offer from another team so we can try to match it. I love Ed, but he handles his business a bit nutty sometimes, what with the retirement talk the past few years and not having an agent.

    Ozzie has already said he's not using the tag.

    Sure they can but the chances of that happening are probably 0.00%. Franchise tags have to be designated by today at 4pm.

    Prior to Joe's resigning, Ozzie said they will not use the tag on anyone but Joe.

    Honestly. That's exactly the way I think it goes. Ozzie is going to let Reed test the market to see what he can get. I think he pretty much already has a number in mind to offer Ed but he's not going to play his cards yet. He did that with Bart Scott and Ray Lewis.

    Thanks for the responses in regards to using the tag on Ellerbe, gentlemen.

    I can see losing Kruger but really hoping we don't lose Kruger & Ellerbe.

    Re: Free Agent Thread:

    If we don't get ellerbe back I'd like to pursue a potential left tackle, maybe long if he doesn't get. What he initially asked for, around the 8 per year range, or Brandon Albert.

    I think iirc we have around 10 or 12 in cap left.
