    Just doesn't make much sense to me.
    He's not even worth tagging.

    I wouldn't pay Spencer $7M a year let alone 11. He's a good complimentary player if you have an elite guy.

    It's the cowboys. Not surprised.

    Minter is going to be there quite a bit into the 2nd round IMO.

    Agreed. I think all of the ILB's could drop into the 2nd round.

    Re: Ravens Free Agent Possible Add / Drops

    In all seriousness, don't be surprised if any of these players join the Ravens:

    Let's keep it real, McKinnie put in enough effort to cash in and he ain't putting in that type of effort again. He'll show up to training camp out of shape, as usual. Why go through that when you can bring in Jake Long, IF you can get him for 8 million a year. Don't ask me why I still think that's possible, but..........

    As for Randy Moss, it actually makes too much sense. First and foremost, Randy Moss still requires a double team. That hasn't changed. People forget that Moss, in his prime, was a 4.2 guy. So, the idea that he's lost a step or two only puts him around 4.4, which is still pretty darn fast. Second, his presence is a key reason why Crabtree and Davis were able to get those underneath, intermediate looks in the passing offense. He took a safety with him when he went deep. Third, if there was one area where Kaepernick struggled, it was throwing the intermediate-deep passes outside the hash. Where does Moss make his money? In the intermediate-deep range, outside the hash. Where is Joe Flacco the most deadly? In the intermediate-deep range, outside the hash.

    Moss wants to play for a contender. Indianapolis was interested in Randy Moss when Caldwell was the Head Coach there. Moss would count for less than half of the amount that Jacoby Jones will count for, toward the cap.

    Casey Hampton could be available, mainly, due to his age. If teams are reluctant to pay him the money he deserves, due to his age, he could come here, where he knows he's going to still get a decent amount and win while doing it. His role will be clear and he can clearly fill that role. Hampton in between Ngata and Jones? With Suggs and Upshaw setting the edge? Please. Game over. Number one run defense in the league.

    Glover Quinn could be an option, he's hitting FA.

    Please don't tell me you are advocating for Moss...

    What do you think he'd be looking for money-wise? He's only 27, proven starter. Definitely like it, but probably too expensive

    Re: Ravens Free Agent Possible Add / Drops

    All those defensive names are just fine and dandy. I love Ellerbe but I think the obvious is being overlooked.
    You do not go and hand your franchise QB a record deal and give him the offensive line that is currently under contract.
    You give him the best shot of reaching his potential and that means addressing the gaping hole at LT
    Oher will start at RT, Osmele and Yanda at gaurd, Gino will get a shot with a vet or draft pick at C
    Drafting from 32 makes it less likely you are going to get a LT who can start day 1 unless you move up which would be costly.
    McKinnie is not guy who is dependable. I think they look elsewhere.
    I think this translates into the Ravens sinking some money into a LT (maybe Long?) and a guy like Barnett at ILB or a DT then draft whatever else they need on defense. Hitting on a developmental LT is not that easy
    The rationale is that from were they are drafting they will be more likely to address S, ILB and even C (Barrett Jones etc) from that drafting position than LT

    Just my take. I think keeping Joe healthy, upright and giving him time to throw is the #1 priority that will be hard to address in the draft
    A linebacker's job is to knock out running backs, to knock out receivers, to chase the football,

    Great option. Love those Texans cast offs.

    He will probably be pretty expensive though.

    There are better options out there like Brad Jones from GB, Nick Barnett who just got cut, and Daryl Smith who has been one of the most underrated players in the league for years playing for garbage teams in Jacksonville. I'm not even joking, I think I'd rather have Bart Scott back over Rey Mauluga.
    Agreed do not need Mauluga. On the field liability and by some accounts a me first player.
    I have always liked Nick Barnett, who is a tackle machine and adequate or better in coverage.
    I think Smith may get costly. Also would rather not have Bart or Rey.
    I think those two guys go somewhere to teams who are desperate. The Super Bowl Champs will attract some of the better buys.
