    Jordan Ricards signing

    Signed to a one year deal....

    Not really thread worthy but its the offseason. Thought he played well in Bethel's departure. Does his signing effect future comp picks?

    1 small move every week or so. Slow, steady progress toward a championship roster....keep working, Mr. DeCosta.

    It's probably for the league minimum or a tad more. 1-1.5m

    Good depth move. Levine is a free agent, and maybe Richards is headed towards that role....

    Yinz have very little idea how incredibly difficult it is to build a roster the right way for the long haul. I very much doubt EdC (or for that matter Biscuit or Harbs) wants to go half-wacko chasing Superb Owls for the next 3 seasons only to have the team fall off Salary Cap Cliff for the succeeding 5.

    Once they figure out who they're keeping around for the long haul (basic 8-12 players, say 3-5 offense, 3-5 defense, PK & punter) the next step is to stabilize the continual replenishment of draftees:
    • Bring them up to speed on ST (which most have never played in college) as they're slotted in as backups for their anointed position(s)
    • Expect them to be ready to move up to starting by the end of year 2
    • Get 2 years' starter-level play from them on their rookie contracts (while drafting their eventual replacements)
    • Wave byebye as some other team drastically overpays them for year 5 on
    • Collect the comp pick

    Oh, and fill out the roster with cheap resigns & FAs, JAGs who are versatile (so they save roster spots). And be proactive regarding player progress - be aware of who is not fitting or getting with the pogrom (frequently hurt or just not clicking) & cut ties as soon as that's apparent if there's a better option (even a stopgap) available.

    Once LJ is in line for the big contract, with others soon to follow (Stanley, Zeus Jr, Mandrews, Hollywood, HH, I could go on) playing the 2-year replenishment cycle like a Strad is going to be a crucial part of keeping the Crows in contention; got to have at least competent play around #8 if he's gonna earn his payday.

    A date which will live in infamy.


    Congratulations to the 2019 Baltimore Ravens for their 14-2 regular season.
    Congratulations to the 2020 Baltimore Cravens for wrecking that season in just 3:13.
    Complete, abject, unredeemed & unredeemable humiliation.
    Individual & organizational. From the Head Coach on down.
