    Will Todd Heap Retire a Raven?



    Will Todd Heap, once he decides to call it quits, do the same thing D-Mase did and sign a one day contract with the Ravens to retire as one?

    I'd like him back to play for another season actually, at least he can catch something.

    Yes and he's a lock for the RoH. Bisciotti already said as much.

    I don't see why he wouldn't. Heap has a great relationship with the team.

    i predict we sign a vet FA, with as much as he was injured last year whats the chances he gets cut and is that vet we bring back for a role his body can still handle.

    I don't know, what other options do Arizona have at TE?

    a bunch of youth and Jeff King. They relied on it last year though. Heap only started 4 games, played in 10. King started 10 and played in all 16. I wouldnt be surprised by it depending on what heaps owed, which im unfamiliar with. If hes available, i could see us bringing him back, hes near the end.

    Would give us a very reliable 3rd down option, and he can block better than any TE we currently have on our roster.

    Re: Will Todd Heap Retire a Raven?

    Heap already retired, he just doesn't know it yet. Look, I like Todd. A lot. And I respect the effort he gave the team. But the writing is on the wall. They're better off with Dixon and Pitta. What they need to do is focus on making both of them more involved in the offense and catching more balls. That will only benefit the WR's on the edge and also Rice. This offense has a lot of weapons. A lot. If they can block and give Rice room and Joe time, they can cause a lot of teams problems.

    Now, to answer the OP's question, I think it's likely that he does. While I think there may have been some bruised feelings after the release, I think both sides will get over that and give Todd the proper sendoff once he decides to give in to the inevitable.

    Truth.
    And there no bruised feelings from all the Heeeeeeeeep that he consistantly heard here.
    Both sides know Todd is still a fan favorite (and if we could afford it, we would by a Hummer )
    Unless he wants to stay out west, walk away from football and never look back, he gladly accepts RoH, and wise Raven marketing management makes sure that it happens.

    He will be in the Ring of Honor soon, I see Mason next year and then Heap and then maybe Billick.

    This one is a tough call! I don't think Todd has hard feelings toward the Ravens but they did cut him. AZ is his home town. I guess it depends on how his career goes there.

    Look at Derrick Mason. Heap didn't do much last year because got injured again. I think Heap's career is winding down and I doubt he has any impact years left.

    Re: Will Todd Heap Retire a Raven?

    Does it really matter if Heap "retires as a Raven?" He was our 1st round draft choice after Super Bowl XXXV (#31 in 2001). He lived through the 'Boller era' and took many vicious hits. IMO if Heap retires from the Cardinals, he's still ROH worthy in Baltimore... Bc

    Re: Will Todd Heap Retire a Raven?

    Heap was the first Raven that I "loved." (Cue sappy girl music here.) And I know it wasn't just me, if you go to any Ravens home game, the amount of Heap jerseys you see on women is astonishing. The women's bathrooms are practically a sea of pink Heap jerseys.

    He was strong, reliable, a workhorse ... like we all know, he took a lot of punishing hits for the good of the team. Couldn't stay healthy, but he single-handedly won or changed the complexion of many important games. San Diego by bowling in for that touchdown. Jets a couple years ago with that sick catch over the middle (that used to be my signature on here). That full-page ad he took out thanking us says it all. Guy is your quintessential football player. I HOPE he retires a Raven.

    Yeah I remember that diving catch he made against the Jets, I had some friends round watching that Monday night game, here in the UK it was like around 2 in the morning and when he made that catch we all were jumping up in the air like we never seen such a great display of athleticism before. That was a good night.

    I really hope Pitta can become the work horse that Heap was for us, and Dickson can be the explosive down field threat at TE.

    No it doesn't matter, but it would be nice for the fans. Also agree with the ROH, statement.
