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.

If he signs a deal some time next week, sweet. Ellerbe was an animal this past season, especially down the stretch.

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.

This would be huge if he's coming here to sign an extension. With the way he played down the stretch, I thought someone would try to snatch him from us...

If he's signing a really fairly priced extension, theres something awesome brewing in Baltimore. Ray left these guys with such a sense of family, pride, and allegiance that already Boldin has professed his love for this team and ONLY this team. Perhaps Ellerbe is buying into the same mentality. Thats there's money and theres family....and theres ways to make both work.

I hope anyway.......

I still think he's a little unknown outside of Baltimore. Don't get me wrong, teams are sure interested in him. But i don't think he is as well known as Kruger.

Flacco's contract is going to be time-consuming because Joe Linta wants big money.

If this is indeed a contract extension, how much you guys think it will be worth? Last March Jameel signed a 3 year $10.5 Million contract. I'm going to assume that it may be very similar to Jameel's contract but could be higher money wise and length wise.

It will be a longer contract and thus more money attached. That would be my guess. He's clearly the future playmaking ILB if we're able to resign him. McClain is just the plugger.
[/quote]

Good point. So maybe a ILB we draft this year or in 2014 along side Ellerbe is the future after Ray?

I would say so. Ellerbe is the blitzing & run stuffer thumper. We get a coverage guy like Brown, Hodges, Te'o, Greene, or Minter (I still think Te'o & Mint can cover) to put next to him. I still think ILB is a need regardless of Ellerbe returning.

McClain is gonna be playing with something to prove. That's always a great motivator. :)

I don't see them lowering Q or Jacoby's contract since both can make a case for being underpaid. Q is #20 on the receivers top pay list and has become Joe's most productive receiver. Jacoby is #39 in top WR pay and is a top KR and major part of the offense in making a SB possible.

I could be wrong but I think Ed Reed and Paul Kruger are definitely gone. Unfortunately Dennis Pita could become the leverage item toward getting Joe to accept a few less dollars.

Pitta is a RFA, they'll put a tender on him. He & Dickson aren't going anywhere.

"Bodymore Murdaland" is an insult to Charm City. If we allowed that, the trolls would all be using it. Nope, not going to happen here.

I'm so proud of this guy. Considering just a short time ago he was in the doghouse for excessively celebrating a DTD in a preseason game, he's come a long way.

Try telling that to anyone who ever watched the wire, which is basically everyone.
