"Dear Mr. McGahee,
The Baltimore Ravens would like to retain your services, but your salary is too high. For less than half, we could sign a veteran RB like Ricky Williams. If you are willing to make 10% over the veteran minimum, we can hash out a deal. If not, then best of luck to you in another NFL city... respectfully, Baltimore Ravens management"
Thanks Bc, I knew you'd come through. I believe you have summarized all of the actual facts.
