    Ray Rice Not Expected to Report on Monday



    Per various outlets.

    Kind of expected, but I still hate seeing it. Just hope it's for mini's and OTA's.

    It was bound to happen. I think we need to think about drafting a mid round RB, just incase...

    I know some of you guys say it's business but a $7M raise is not chicken feed. I don't like it but hopefully it won't last long. BTW - draft LMichael James

    I'd rather draft Robert Turbin or Bernard Pierce who both suit our offense much better- down field zone runners. LaMichael James isn't an every down back, and is just too small to survive in the AFCN.

    Rice is bound to sign the long term deal that the Ravens have offered him soon enough. A life span of a running back as we all know is not long and I do not think the Ravens will have an issue franchising him twice and letting him walk.

    That would be a loss for Ray Rice. No I in team, he should acknowledge that the Ravens team made him what he is today. He should get a lot of money, maybe not what he's asking for though. If he had performed better in critical games and helped win those games, I say he could get whatever he's asking for. But he was great against average defenses and couldn't get the job done against post season teams. Next man up, let him see how the Ravens handle his situation.

    Not so sure about that. He wants way to much $ for his value. I am pretty sure the Ravens won't tag him again at near 9.2 million or so. If he doesn't take the Foster type deal, this will be his last year as a Raven. Not worried about him showing up Monday. He didn't show up in January for that matter either.

    James puts on a few pounds and he's the same size as Rice. But one of those other guys is fine with me, just reload.

    I kind of expect them to get a deal done this summer but if not, this is probably his last year as a Raven

    A few pounds is like 20 pounds? ok lol. Ray Rice may be short, but the dudes stacked.

    But he was great against average defenses and couldn't get the job done against post season teams
    Oh and Rice not stepping up against good teams? I mean how the hell can you even justify this, he has had huge games against good teams time and time again. Bengals, Steelers, Patriots (wild card 2009), Saints, etc.. He carried us on offense in a bunch of important games over the years. He isn't the best back in the league, but he is up there with the best backs. IMO the best all around back has to be either Forte or McFadden (when healthy).

    Turbin has ALL the tools to replace rice. maybe better. .O3 slower 40 but at 5'10 225 lbs easily has the power rice lacks. Turbin will be a quality starter for whoever drafts him. Hes very fluid receiving and has the size/strength to pass block. I love him as a prospect.
