    Doubt Marshall is going anywhere (I still don't think we're too friendly with the Bears front office after the 2011 draft debacle), but I've always thought he gets a bad rap. The guy always shows up and plays hard when the whistle blows. He's durable and consistent.

    Trade him for Boldin and a 4th.

    IMHO, they wouldn't just cut a player because he has a larger cap number unless they were planning on making moves. Having 2 FB's or not, Leach has proven to be a great player and teammate on the Ravens. This move really indicated Ozzie has something in the works, probably geared towards the WR position.

    From what my eyes saw, he was always skiddish about going over the middle when he came to Baltimore.

    Anyone have any suggestions for what team would even trade for Leach? St. Louis? Tampa?

    FB is just about an extinct position...I don't see any way anybody trades for him, especially at his salary.

    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.

    This is and always was about value.

    It doesn't make good fiscal sense to pay him that number next year.

    I don't think this necessarily means the team is looking for other moves. Rather, it's setting the stage for next off season.

    Re: Goodbye Vontae Leach

    He's the best lead blocker in the game, that is what he is. What he isn't is an offensive weapon. They tried to use him in the offense occasionally but his downfall is being one dimensional. If they plan on using a lot of single back formations, then it's hard to justify 4.3m for a guy who is only a lead blocker. Juice won't be as effective as a blocker(no one is). But it's not a stretch to think he could be better in every other aspect of playing FB/HB. When Juice breaks a big gain that will go a long way towards making this point.

    I don't believe this move was made without having plans to sign someone else. I'll be surprised if we don't get a WR soon.

    I thought both Leach and Cody wouldn't be on the team this year and caught flack for it. I'm still thinking Cody is iffy because he was a bad football players last year. Roster spots are limited. if you can't play effectively or you don't have a role on the team then you need to go.

    However, the reality was clear. Rice was picking up more yardage in single back and Caldwell was running more three wide. When you combine that with the desire for more Two TE sets, the writing was on the wall.
    Yes this is pretty accurate. I REALLY want to keep Leach but three million is quite steep for a FB that is not used much.

    The jets might if they are intent on establishing a run game, some team like that with a young qb t take the pressure of. If they have cap

    I don't think any team will trade for him but he will have a high demand as a FA. Just not at $4M.

    I guess Leachisabeast will have to change his name now

Brandon Marshall but doubt they invite the headaches. Maybe Steve Smith of Carolina. Maybe Jeremy Maclin as a younger option.
    I'd love Cruz more than anyone. I've been very obsessed with him on film for the past two months. Can't see us giving him want he wants though. Love to wrong on this one though. I'd isht myself if that guy came to town.

    Maclin felt right to me around draft day, and who knows who are Kelly's "guys" up in Philly, so maybe he's looking to clear the decks a bit.
    I think Maclin would fit pretty well on this roster, but I haven't watched game film on him in months. I don't have a good feel for his monetary value.

    TEN is loaded, but there's no one there that I see value in (not counting Britt and his troubles).
    Besides Steve Smith, CAR only has Olsen as proven. Even if they traded him, we already have cap room for him.
    The only other team loaded with WRs in CIN and obviously nothing is going to happen there.

    SEA's Doug Baldwin is attractive to me. Under-rated and whose duties may be consumed by Harvin. We already have enough cap room for him though.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.
