    You're making a ton of assumptions here.

    You don't know he's able to return. Practice doesn't equal being able to play in a game.

    Yes, he's in a contract year but the team is coveting him and are going to protect their investment. And even if he's not interested in staying in Baltimore, it's still in the teams and players best interest not to cause permanent, long term damage. He suffers just as much as the team does if he loses value because he rushed back.

    Teams know he's a talent. He doesn't have to showcase this season. He's going to get paid regardless.

    Point is, the team is not going to play him if there's a chance of harming him further.

    Stokely would have to be healthy, and back to practice to cut him.

    Stash him? He's already had a major injury, and lost 10 games this season. Nobody knows how many more games Pitta will miss either. Speculating here with Ravens missing the playoffs : if he comes back to play in 4 games, and plays at a decent level, do you think any team is going to be knocking his door down with a mega-contract? I believe that boat has sailed already, and the most he can hope for is a one year contract from the Ravens for 2014, and then let the market play out... Bc

    I'm glad he's back practising and I hope they don't rush him or shelve him. Just make sure he's healthy and able to make all the cuts and moves.

    IF Pitta feels like he is ready to play and the team stashes him then we can just say goodbye to him. No way does he takes such a mickey mouse ploy by the team.

    This ^^

    The Ravens have exclusive control over a player coming off the PUP/Reserve IR list.

    My thinking is this.. You run the risk of showcasing him as a season-saver if you bring him back and we go on run where he scores a few TD's.. Then he walks out the door as an un-restricted free agent at the end of the season. The Ravens are liable to ease him back into the lineup.. Just enough to get his feet wet. And then hope to get a bargain price on him for next season.

    We'll I just hope that having Pitta back around in practice and meetings will get Flacco pumped up. That alone would help this very important home stand that Joe has to be lights out with. I so hope it's at least pumps our QB up to bombs always all next week to make A Pitta return worth while. I'm pumped and looking forward to see Joe do the thing Sunday and Thursday.
    I'm pissed off for greatness!!

    Really no sense in bringing him back this year. We aren't going to the playoffs, so why would the team want to bring him back?

    If this team were to win their next three games, would you change your mind? I think that's very realistic at this point with them all being at home. A 7-6 ravens team with Pitta and three games remaining @DET, vs NE, and @CIN is a very intriguing prospect at this point
