      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 »

For good? To sign a new deal? Lift his trainers he left behind?

Oh GOD I hope we re-sign this man. I hope he gets a friendly deal, too. Make it four years. I like him a lot as a player. He played through a lot of injuries this year.

He did say "Bodymore" - maybe he's just on his way to an aptly named gym? :P

Bodymore Murdaland is slang for Baltimore.

Yes! Let's hope it's him re-signing, from an UDFA to a starter for Ellerbe, Ozzie strikes again!

Oh let this be the start of things to come. Hopefully we'll be able to extend Jacoby and Anquan's contracts to lower their cap hit next.

Not to be stupid but why would he be signing before Flacco? Shouldn't Joe be signed first so you know exactly how much money you have to work with? Or will this contract talk last months and we cant wait that long to get a deal done...

Pretty much it is going to take a while to get Joe done.

If we waited for that, we could possibly lose all of our free agents and not sign anyone.

Joe's deal COULD take some time. You still move forward on other signings. You might also have an idea of the Joe contract already.

Re-signing Ellerbe is going to be huge because I think Jameel and Ellerbe can hold down the ILB position pretty good. That will only make ILB less priority before the draft.

Because Joe's not going anywhere. that much the front office has made clear. They know that, and he knows that, and they'll do whatever it takes to keep him - worst comes to worse and they will tag him. Ellerbe is a different story - if they don't reach a deal, it's already been made clear Joe will be the only one to receive the tag if it comes to that.

I really hope this means what I hope it does, and not that he's just coming back to Baltimore after a trip.

Need to sign him to make ILB less of a priority. Can get by with a rookie/ McClain beside him; McClain and a rookie not so much.
