    AND if he doesn't play well, and Jimmy Smith takes his spot, then what can he expect? I can't blame him for "rolling the dice" on his career, but it's a risk that many pro players face, and take or reject for a little $ecurity... Bc

    He could still get 3/15 with 5-8 million guaranteed on the open market BC.

    Yes, of course he can...but if he has a bad season or is injured, then what?
    I'm not saying he should just sign any contract the Ravens put before him, but as I replied to Raveninwoodlawn, every year brings risks (and keep in mind C. Wms does not have a single int. to his pro name)... so roll the dice Cary, but keep in mind you're not a Pro Bowl shoe in... Bc

    Even if he signed it, what's the chance that he would be happy with it if the opposite happens and he plays just as well as he did last year, or even better? Remember, last year was his first season as a starter. He still has room to grow?

    You think a 28 year old CB with 0 career interceptions and one year of collecting any real playing time would get more than 3 years/$15 million on the open market if he got hurt? I don't see it. Healthy, probably. Hurt, no way. We aren't talking about a player with a track record of elevated play here.

    Or he could get the $1 million veteran minimum if he gets hurt.

    I remember Tony Pashos (OLineman drafted in 2003). He started (@ OT) in his 4th season, but the Ravens did not resign him. He faded away as an under average player. Not saying that C. Wms would see the same fate, but I am confident in Ozzie paying the "right player for the right price." With Webb and J. Smith, the Ravens IMO have two solid CBs for the future, along with some younger ones too. Cary cannot overplay his hand in Baltimore or he will go elsewhere for more than the Ravens are willing to pay... Bc

    Tony Pashos faded, but he got paid in FA first.

    Or, he could get cut before the expiration of his contract, even if he signed an extension with the Ravens. Or, he could be upset with his contract if he improves on his performance last season. He decided to skip all of that and he is not the first one to do so. Ed Reed has done it. Ray Lewis has done it. Terrell Suggs has done it. Ray Rice has done it. Haloti Ngata has done it. Yet, we didn't suddenly downplay them or the strategy, because they knew their worth. Which happens to be the same worth we as fans pumped them up to.

    Jimmy Smith hasn't shown at all that he deserves that spot over Cary.

    And if he does, he still can make more than 3 years and 15 million.

    Also, none of us are arguing that the team should offer him more. The offer is what it is.

    And I won't fault him for going for the payday. This will be the only opportunity for him to get a big contract.
