    Art Jones is as good as gone. I hope he doesn't go to Cleveland. Their D is already good enough.

    Re: The TAG thread

    I really don't see the Ravens tagging anyone unless it's a temporary leverage while working out a long term deal. Just too expensive.

    The Ravens aren't going to let Monroe go. They going to work like hell to get him signed before they have to tag. If not he's going to be tagged and then they'll try and get a deal before the next deadline.

    Re: The TAG thread

    So clarify for me, the Ravens have not tagged anyone, YET?

    I share your thought. I'd find it hard to believe Ozzie would trade 4th and 5th round picks just to "rent" Monroe for part of one season. IMO the TAG would be last resort, but I think Ozzie would use it if he absolutely had to... Bc

    I think while he is a good, solid player, he is approaching getting overrated on this board.

    He def isn't as important as Monroe, but i think I'd rather have him than pitta. I'm just not sure it's either Monroe or pitta in the FO minds

    I understand, but I wouldn't tag anybody other than Monroe if it was deemed necessary to use it.

    No way Jones is worth it...he's a good player, but not irreplaceable at a position that doesn't have a lot of value.

    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.

    Re: The TAG thread

    With the current state of the NFL, quick passing, short passes, quick releases etc, Art is not as valuable as Monroe. Pitta to me is up in the air based off of his injury. He did come back, but can he continue to produce as a $6 mil dollar TE. I think that money benefits us elsewhere regardless if he his Joe's BFF. to many question marks and we just dropped Boldin ($6 mil)who was virtually just like Pitta up the middle

    One week in, not a single tag.

    I think Ozzie is going to let Jones walk and get a monster deal for the comp pick next year.

    Re: The TAG thread

    Three days left without a single team using the tag so far. Seems pretty likely that Jimmy Graham will be tagged and then it will likely go to arbitration after he files a grievance.

    That one will be interesting

    Why would any team tag a player early? Teams are going to use the tag as leverage to get a deal done. They're going to keep negotiating until the last possible minute. If a deal isn't done then they'll tag. If they use the tag early negotiations are going to break down until the deadline to sign a tagged player hits in the early Summer.

    Re: The TAG thread

    That last couple hours of the deadline are going to be tag-erific.

    I think that Monroe's tag # ($11 million I think) would be fine considering that the top tackles are getting upwards of $15 million and that the cap has been pushed up significantly. I don't think you can value pick a LT in freeagency this year with all of the $$ almost assured to be thrown around.

    I don't think Arthur Jones (DT) will get a monster deal. I do believe he will get a contract that will give the Ravens a 4th round pick in 2015 though... Bc

    Can't tag Monroe if the tag number is 11m. Once you do that you have set the floor at 11m. You will never get a deal done where it should be if you tag him. He should get around 8m per year.
