    And a guy that got benched and than released is going to pull how much money? I doubt he gets serious offers. Granted alot of teams will think like us and say he got benched and released because of the coaching staff change, BUT how do they know he'll fit in their system and yadda yadda?

    My guess is he would be easily obtainable for the next few years at less than what we handed Birk, or given inflation maybe a similar contract. Much wiser move than dumping as much as their about to into the G position.

    I think he is worth taking a look at and now that he did make a nice pay check maybe he just wants to be back with a winning organization.

    I will never forget when he talked negative about Boller (which he had a right too because Boller sucked...yes yes I know he is a nice guy) and than Boller followed him to the Rams that same year, that was classic.

    Jason Brown has been one of the worst starting centers in the league over the past 3 years. Why would we want to bring a bad player back to replace a great one? Sign Birk and draft his replacement this year.

    Brown would be a good utility backup at G/C, but only for the veteran minimum.

    I am not sure if Birk honestly has enough left in the tank to anchor the middle of the line for a whole season anymore.

    He had a bad year this past season, but before that he was pretty solid for the Rams.

    I dont know where people are getting that he sucked.

    I peeked in there today for the first time in months. What a nightmare.

    On topic, I'm not sure Brown is a fit for the Ravens.

    Don't blame you...Christopher Columbus was asked by Queen Isabella to make a foray into the Sun Board. Chris replied, "My queen, I'd rather sail around the world, facing the dangers of the open sea, rather than post on that abominable board. Their leader "the King of Donuts" cannot even acknowledge the strong right arm of your worthy captain Joseph Flacco." AND thus America was found... Bc

    That's very interesting, I think it would certainly mean we could afford not to draft a center if he accepts it (which I doubt he'll accept anyway).

    Love the use of the word conservative. That's not exactly beating down the door. Based on the teams interested he would be at least second on the depth chart for all teams involved.

    Re: Jason Brown

    i dont understand it though? birk is the stop gap, why bring in another one, which he clearly would be on a 1 yr deal. we have birk, we now need to go young at center behind him. i would have understood it prior to signing birk, but this is kind of silly now.

    The Birk signing makes little sense to me too, would have been better to sign Andre Gurode back tbh. I think they maybe would bring him in to compete for the LG spot, and if he impresses, takes over from Birk down the line at center, assuming we draft a guard this year. Don't forget that Jason Brown is only like 27.

    Still it doesn't make much sense to me.

    It's because Jason Brown would play LG. Brown came into the league as a G, before moving to C for the last few years of his rookie contract (It was either the last or last two). That is what caused the issue with him in FA. The Ravens wanted him to continue to play C, but he wanted G money, because he'd spent time there for them. Ozzie wouldn't give him G money and St. Louis gave him G money to play C.

    He was good at both for the Ravens.

    Brown would likely play LG.

    Now, I've heard reports that Gurode is WAY done as an NFL player.

    Sources?

    If it's true, then hats off to a player who had a great career as the Dallas Cowboys center, he provided decent depth when he came to us but was obviously not a left guard. Arguably could have been our starting center over Birk towards the end of the season.
