    Dwight Freeney



    Is it possible that Ozzie could trade for this guy now? I know he can't play the run, but I could see him coming here and getting 10-12 sacks.

    His cap number is near $14 million. No way they can clear that kind of space.

    If he'd agree to play for 10 bucks, and a crabcake. We don't have any cap space.

    Re: Dwight Freeney

    Osi would be a better bet because his cap hit is about 11 mill less than Freeney's.

    Re: Dwight Freeney

    The reason the Colts don't want him, other than his cap number, is because he's 32 years old learning to play OLB for the first time. Why would we bring him here to do the same thing? Don't act desperate. We don't even know that we need to replace Suggs for the entire season.

    Knee jerk overreaction. The Baltimore Ravens will be ok without Sizzle. Next man up.

    If the Ravens can sign Ray Rice long term, then they will have some cap room to maneuver. Say they trade for Osi to shore up their pass rush early in the season, and Suggs comes back by November. Can you imagine the monster pass rush the Ravens could possibly have by the time the playoffs role around?

    The Giants won the Super Bowl getting guys back and healthy towards the end of the season. It would be great.

    Kruger/Kindle/Upshaw/McAdoo/McPhee/Ngata and so on and so forth. Every player on the defense needs to step their game up. That's what next man up means- not that one guy needs to reproduce Suggs' 14 sacks from last year, but that as a unit, the defense needs to account for the lost production either in improved pass rush from other players, improved secondary play, etc etc.

    Lets not panic here.
    It sucks he is injured. Wait to here what extent he will be out. Worse case scenerio is we have upshaw on one side day 1...

    Suggs will be missed for sure if he is out all year but life as we know it will go on. there are 11 other guys on defense who will have a say in how many points we give up.

    Plenty of time in offseason to figure things out

    Re: Dwight Freeney

    Freeney is another pure pass rusher who is not a good fit for this defensive scheme. The Ravens really asked a lot of Terrell Suggs. He wasn't just rushing the passer.

    You hit it right on the head, cousin. Thank you for fleshing out my thought.

    No thanks, next man up...
    Everybody's talkin' at me; I don't hear a word they're saying; Only the echoes of my mind

    I'm going where the sun keeps shining; Thru' the pouring rain; Going where the weather suits my clothes

    Banking off of the North East winds; Sailing on a summer breeze; And skipping over the ocean like a stone
