    2023 Annual Forking

    Who gets it this time around?

    Marcus Peters - We wont really be able to afford him if we wanted him back

    Lamar - We all know of this ongoing situation

    Watkins - Back to back years of getting forked

    Ben Powers - Likely to get paid much more money elsewhere

    Jawuan James - Cannot stay healthy

    Kenyan Drake - We need to get someone younger at this position
    Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!

    Calais Campbell, Chuck Clark, Gus Edwards, Michael Pierce, Devin Duvernay. Some will have the options to take pay cuts to stay but I'm not sure any will. Zeitler I think they extend to get his number down. QB tags are damn expensive. Drastic measures are going to have to be taken.

    Jeff Z did a detailed article this morning: https://theathletic.com/4134434/2023...son-decisions/

    Yikes! add Justin Houston to these lists.

    I think that Decosta will try hard to keep Clark & Duverney, who were key components of the 2022 season.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    I hadn't read that article when I made my post. It's kind of depressing that it's the same guys I wrote because I honestly I want most of these guys back. I'm hope I'm wrong but even the title of the article is the same reasoning. Even is always complaining that Lamar doesn't have enough weapons. In order to keep him he's going to end up with a lot less.

    I'd hate to see Gus go. He's my favorite Raven--doesn't make an ass of himself in the press or on social media and always plays hard.

    I think it's really unlikely Lamar plays on the tag

    That's the whole point. Duvernay made the Pro Bowl which pushes his cap number to $4.5 million. Cutting him saves $4.3 million. The Ravens can't afford a return guy who is #4 WR at that number. Pierce has played 11 games in the past 3 years combined. Can he stay healthy? Cutting Pierce saves $2.1 million.

    Go listen to Brian McFarland. If the Ravens are going franchise Lamar even at the non-exclusive number they must create space. The Ravens don't use void years like most other teams. That means to lower cap number you either have to extend players, restructure or cut them. It's pretty obvious they aren't looking for more Brandon Williams type bloated restructures. That leaves extensions or cuts. Replacements have to come from much better drafting.

    It doesn't matter if he plays on the tag. If no deal is done before March 7 they have to tag him even if they want to trade him. The Ravens have 1 month to get a deal done or they have to start making cuts. They aren't letting Lamar hit the free agent market and getting back a 3rd round comp pick. Whether Lamar plays on the tag or not he's going to get tagged and they have to create space to do it.

    They routinely restructure nearly every viable candidate every year.

    As an example Ronnie Stanley was NOT restructured last year, which shows the Ravens restraint due to his injury concerns. After returning, playing at an extremely high level and ending the season healthy, he is a virtual lock to get restructured along with Humphrey.

    Clark and Edwards may have trade value. Id they do, they will likely be moved.
