    Kruger is going to make 12 million a year at a position where we already have two starting quality players.

    Ellerbe is a good young player who the Ravens would be fortunate to keep.

    You're going to compare two players on the decline versus a player with still a lot of upside Have you even consider what our linebacker depth would like with Ellerbe gone?
    As for Kruger he's good as gone. Too expensive

    Upshaw may never be more than a Jarrett Johnson clone and Suggs may never be the same, he could even be a cap casualty next year if his play doesn't improve back to the norm.

    I'd like to keep Ellerbe but not for anywhere near 30mil, he should get what McClain got.

    I can understand where he is coming from, but Bart Scott and Takeo Spikes no longer match up to Dannell Ellerbe in run defense anymore.

    They are past their prime.

    McClain got 5 mil/year.

    Assuming Ellerbe gets a 5 year 30 million dollar deal, he will only be getting 6 mil/year.

    McClain got 3.5 mil/year and he's overpaid. 6 mil/year is way too much for a player who gets beat like a redheaded stepchild in coverage.

    I might buy an Ellerbe jersey if he re-signs here.

    He's playing it smart on twitter...A more immature guy might start talking about he wants his money and BS. He's being very mature not really saying anything bad and just kind've showing respect to the team.

    The other way to play it? Just stay off twitter for a week or two.

    There's some serious overrating of McClain in this thread. Dude has never shown flashes of being anything more than solid. Ellerbe played outstanding this year.

    If Upshaw turns out to be "never more than" a guy who started almost 100 games for us, anchored the left side of our D for 7+ years, and is one of the most underrated players in Ravens history, we'll be very, very lucky.
