    Really? That seems high for this market.

    I know they have cap space to burn. Maybe they are trying to overpay a little to get near that 89% threshold.

    It is hilarious to watch Mike Brown continue to screw the Bengals. They could have landed any player they wanted. Can you imagine Wallace or Jennings next to Green? Yet here they are giving $6.5M to Maualuga.
    They would have been smarter to overpay a better player. Maualuga is horrible.

    I wonder what the Chiefs want for him. I'd have to believe Ozzie would be hesitant because their asking price might be too high.
    Probably the 2nd round pick they gave up for Alex Smith.

    This is a miserable, awful deal. The Bengals certainly have a big need at LB with only Vontaze Burfict returning from their starting 3 last year, so I understand their desire to go out and get a linebacker, but the only upside Maualuga offers is familiarity with the defense. He is a terrible player. Maybe they feel he'll be better playing on the strong side with Burfict in the middle? Maualuga was better in his first couple of years as a SAM.

    That would mean the Ravens first round pick. Didn't the Chiefs have the first pick in the second round?

    The contract details on Kenny Phillips' 1 year deal w/Philly just came out. $1.85m, another million in incentives, ZERO dollars guaranteed.

    Why oh why couldn't it have been the Ravens making that deal? Pro Bowl-caliber player (when healthy) at our weakest position on the entire roster basically FOR FREE.

    Somebody please talk me off this cliff and explain why we are bleeding talent and sitting idle in what appears to be the biggest buyers' market of free agency of the last decade...

    Maybe, just maybe he's not ravens material? Because if he was we would have signed him by now?

    Hell of a deal.

    I think the majority of the NFL was obviously terrified by his injury history though.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    No. The Jaguars do. They flip flop the first 2 picks from round 1 in round 2.

    Thanks, but either way the Chiefs would want the Ravens first round pick if they were trying to recoup the pick they gave up for Alex Smith. They are just two picks apart. I can't see Ozzie trading that first round pick away, and then signing Albert to a big contract. Not if he is serious talking with Dumervil and Ed Reed.

    Who was the LT in KC two years ago?

    Albert or Gaither?

    I agree. It would also lead to big cap problems unless they could quickly work out a deal with Albert. That's how Cassel was able to get that nice contract from the Chiefs. They traded for him while he was on the franchise tag and before they worked out a contract. The cap number was so big that Cassel really had them over a barrel and was able to get the deal he wanted.

    Vontae Leach's bitch is back in town, Rey Maualuga before anyone asks.

    At this point, why would the Ravens trade for Brandon Albert when they could probably give up less to trade for Roger Saffold?
