    Re: Josh Bynes and Adrian Hamilton top candidates for promotion.



    I think the latter is a more likely explanation - somebody about to make a move on Rainey. Don't teams have an option with the PS quys - to basically match the offer (promote the player to the 53 man roster or let him go)

    Ravens also try out CB Buddy Jackson according to AW

    No, I believe anyone can sign a player off the Ravens practice squad or any practice squad without the team having the right to match. That does not mean the players agent wont call the Ravens and let them know they were offered a contract and wanted to see if the ravens would match it or offer him one.

    But this seems to make the most sense. Now I would trade him we dont need 4 RBs and a FB. There is one roster spot left and i suspect it goes to Hammilton or Bynes.

    Once Suggs makes the roster I expect Kindle to be cut.

    They will add a CB but just for depth. I dont see any major trades or signings as we have depth and Webb will be back next year. If we did trade for Talib it would cost a 4th or 5th rounder and I dont know what is contract situation is but he may not be a bad option since Cary Williams is gone after this year.

    That's the big head scratcher - 4 running backs and Leach!

    Re: Josh Bynes and Adrian Hamilton top candidates for promotion.

    Just pciture this though, two starting CB's are true shut down corners in Webb and Talib, then you have Jimmy Smith as the 3rd corner on the roster. That's pretty good depth. Put it this way, I would be happy if the Ravens traded for Talib. I know that he has had some SERIOUS issues before, that's the big concern I'd have.

    agreed!!!!! I believe the trade deadline is the Monday after week 8?

    Wonder if oz would pull this off? But keep in mind Smith is a 1st rounder with a ton of upside do you want him as your 3rd CB in his 3rd year in the league, he should be starting by then and has shown flashes of his potential. But i guess with more teams playing with 3 WRs this could make sense as all 3 would "start"

    Well IF the Ravens would make this deal, perhaps it'd just be a rental for the rest of the year? It seems unlikely though. Not even that it's Talib, but that Ozzie never makes mid season trades (at least not that I can remember). It can be a tough transition.

    IDK if it's just a typo on the Ravens roster on the website but it has Anthony Allen not listed on the active roster, but on the practice squad. They've updated it with the Rainey move up and have moved Webb to IR. Don't know if that's just a mistake though.

    Hm. Only 52 players listed on the active roster (inclu#52, who hasn't been moved to IR yet). Since AA is at the top of the alphabet, it might just be a slip--a search found nothing on the team website.

    Interesting. Not sure if that's a move they plan to make, but it's definitely not on the official transaction reports from the league. Also, for Allen to make it to the PS, he's got to be released and clear waivers, so the entire transaction (so to speak) wouldn't happen until 24 hours later, even if he had been released from the 53 today.

    Maybe the website got ahead of the personnel department. It sure doesn't make sense to carry 4 running backs and Leach. Having Rainey and Allen swap places does make sense however - as Rainey can serve as a return man and he did outperform Allen in the preseason.

    Having Talib and Jimmy Smith would give the Ravens the most badass starting CBs in football....literally.

    Although, Jimmy, with all his problems at Colorado, has kept his nose clean here. Talib is a disaster of a human being. He acts like a child on the football field and is one of the biggest criminals the NFL has ever seen off the field. He makes Pacman Jones or the late Chris Henry look like solid citizens.

    He is darn talented though.

    Who in the hell is going to trade for rainey when they could have poached him off the ps over the last seven weeks. If anythin, anthony allen will get demoted.

    Talib is on a four game suspension... would seem a pointless move.
