    McGahee is a Raven according to ESPN



    The Ravens and Bills agreed to a trade Thursday that will send running back Willis McGahee to Baltimore in exchange for the team's third and seventh-round picks in this year's draft, along with the Ravens' third-round pick in 2008, league sources tell ESPN.com's Michael Smith.

    McGahee a Raven

    According to ESPN.com's Michael Smith


    This years 3rd and 7th, and next year's 3rd for McGahee.


    No word on a contract extension.


    Check out espn.com


    I think its a steal. We didn't lose a 2nd rounder, and we stand to get some 3rd/4th rounders in compensatory picks for FA's we lost.

    Very exciting....not sure about 2 third round picks though. Oh well. Hopefully we'll get a 3rd round comp for AD next year.

    I keep coming back to McNair for a fourth and this exchange seems a bit rich. But I do think the Ravens are already counting on compensatory picks for this year and next so it seems ok at this point.

    Of course it all hinges on McGahee outperforming Jamal and the terms of the contract once they are announced.

    We'll more than likely get a 3rd round pick in 2008 for AD as AD signed one of the top five contracts. As for this year's 3rd, it is at the bottom of the round, so it is almost a 4th round pick. As stated, we typically don't do well with our 3rd and 4th round pick. When you fill out your draft boards, just insert Willis MaGahee's name as the 3rd round pick. I would take Willis over any RB not named Adrian Peterson in this draft, and that includes Lynch.

    We have our RB for the next 4 years (especially beyond the 30 and over purge).

    Look for us to sign FB, Daniel Shelton.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    I'd like to see the contract terms before I make a call on what kind of deal it is.

    If I were a Bills fan I would have wanted more than a very low third and seventh this season and third next. I'm optomistic that WM will have his best season as I think the Raven O-line is much better than Buffalos.

    That's allot to give up for a one year rental and I've never been a fan of Drew Rosenhaus.

    I think the price was relatively cheap for a young running back as talented as McGahee. We could have a top young RB locked up for years to come.

    Im Happy its Offical i thought the longer this went on we were gonna get screwed. Espically since Jamal signed. McGahee has to be an upgrade over Jamal.

    Re: McGahee a Raven

    Makes sense to me.

    The Bills wanted a 2nd rounder and we weren't gonna give that. For what McGahee can offer if he actually gets the motivation in Baltimore that he didn't in Buffalo then two thirds could be a bargain, he has tremendous upside and only three years on him. This is a wait and see deal and right now there isn't a winner or loser in this draft immediately, we don't feel the bite of the 3rd next year and for this year we've given up a 7th (irrelevant) and a 3rd (McGahee's better than any back we're going to get in the 3rd this year) for a guy that Buffalo wanted shot of.

    This deal makes sense and for right now is balanced and will tip one way or t'other depending upon how McGahee pans out.

    Re: McGahee a Raven

    But is he better than any tackle we could have gotten in the third?

    I agree that the real value of the deal hinges on the contract.

    I disagree that 2 3rds seems rich when comparing ti to McNair. First of all the Titans had to cut McNair, the Bills could of kept McGahee. Secondly, and more importantly, Willis is only 25 and has played just 3 NFL seasons. He is just entering his prime while McNair (although I love him) is in his twilight years.

    And to PurpleRulz, you are right about our struggles with 3rd rounders but totally off base with 4th rounders. After the 1st round I think the 4th round is the most consistently successful place for us. I wonder if there is correlation between the fact we do the best on the opening round of both day 1 and day 2. After those rounds I'm not sure, I want to say it was either the 6th or UDFAs.

    Erm, yes.

    So far as I can tell there's immediate impact from two tackles in this draft (Thomas and Brown) and possibly Sears, but no tackle in the third round offers anything immediately to this team that's returning what? 18 starters? that is anything close to the upgrade that McGahee can.

    Okay. We have had recent success in the 4th with Jason Brown and Demetrius Williams, so I will give you that.

    As for this trade, the 3rd round pick is at the end of the round and pretty much a 4th. The 7th rounder is near the end and four moves from "Mr. Irrelevant." We have success with UDFAs and maybe, just maybe, there is some insight to what our comp picks will be in 2007 and 2008.

    Yet another thought is that we could be looking into making a trade to net a 3rd rounder. Who knows, but in Ozzie I Trust.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!
