      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

Thank you for taking a paycut to stay a ravens. Very hard to do. You worked hard to prove people wrong. and trust me there where a lot of ravens fans wondering why and oping you play. Before the colts game a couple friends of mine went but i stayed home and was watching the pregame show. Soon as they said Reid was out and there was a surprise I knew it. I texted my friends you were in. Thank you for being patient. Thank you for staying a ravens and taking paycut. Thanks a lot. you are a true raven and wish you best of luck and hope you stay a ravens. I know theres no comparing ogden to you but when you are on you are a shut down left tackle, And no offense to oher but oher is a good lt but a great RT and it fits so much better

B-Mac, this is the kind of story you should pass on to the rookies. Your patience, resolve and work ethic were tested all season long. Teach these young rooks that even a Pro Bowl vet has to keep on pushing it every week or you'll be on the bench. Nothing is handed to you.

Keep on doing what you do, big man !

I was so Happy when we got McKinney He`s always been game day performer. He just has lazy work effort and motivation maybe Harbs Knew and restarted his career. Keep up the good work Braynt I always have faith in you. Go Ravens!!!

National Media already Projecting Ed Reed, to the Patriots.. if Ozzie doesn't sign him..

Just like Rodney Harrison in early 2000's, Ed will bring more Rings to Brady..



Ozzie, Give Ed his Due.. give him a 3-4 yr Retirement contract..

He deserves the same treatment R.Lewis, and J. Ogden

The Ripken Treatment.. only the all time greats deserve..

I don't want him on the Patriots. ... NEVER

Harbs put him in the dog house early in the season because of his work ethic. When he was able to return we should have put him back in. This is the best this -o- line has played in years, if we can keep the pressure off Flacco we will win the harbowl.

@Ravensdog86 - believe me I want REED to stay here as much as anyone but let's not forget when it was Ray's contract renewal what happened, they let him go out and test the market, I have a feeling Ozzie will let him test the market and hopefully they are able to match his best offer. However, we have Flacco, Ellerbe, Kruger and McKinnie all looking for contracts as well....once again this team will look significantly different come next season ;(

If he can stonewall smith like he didto the other pass rushers were gonna win the game that's the key if Flaccos jersey is clean in the end the ravens will prevail

@IbleedpurpleandBlack...

I know what the Contract Situations Are... and I know what the Priorities are...

Flacco 1st, Ellerbe 2nd, then decide on Reed or the others...

But heres what you and most of Raven Nation are not Paying attention to...

Of the Key F/A's Flacco, Ellerbe, Kruger, Williams, Mckinnie, Reed...

Only 1 of the LB'S are getting signed, and it's Ellerbe... Listen to Local Sports Radio, Listen to Logic, listen to Truth.. Ellerbe is a 3 down Backer who is way more versatile, Kruger's Asking price is 8-10 Mil for a Situational Pass Rusher.. We can pick up 2 of him in the draft because its loaded on defense and Pass Rush, plus Upshaw has been groomed as his replacement.

C.Williams also asking 8-10 Mil he's not #1 corner, hes not Derrelle Revis, L. Webb.. Plus we have Chykie brown, Jimmy Smith, Cory Graham, L. Webb.. so the Writing is on the Wall those 2 won't be back likely..

Mckinnie, even though he's 34 is the Most likely to return..
but if they feel he's to old he may not, but He probably will get a deal

So i agree Ozzie might let Reed test the Market, but thats not a good thing..
because the difference is with Ray 5 years ago or whatever, there was no market..
Everybody thought he was done and couldn't play at a high level anymore...

With Reed, he's still the best Safety in Football, as far as Hawking footballs and returning them...
and Putting fear in qb's

Bellicheck will suck him up in a split second...

So Ozzie better sign him immediately
after the Flacco deal, right around Ellerbe deal

Cause if Reeds in Patriots uniform next year...

Im not watching Ravens until Reed Retires
