Uhm uhm good thing im not ozzie, erick, dick, john and steve lmao :Dancing_Banana_Homer_by_zorkky: . Only thing i can contribute are my opinions lol.
Joe Flacco will be the leader of the team cause he produces in major games unlike Ray Rice needs to stop fumbling in the playoffs lol really man. Also Pierce had an 100X better playoff play then our rice

I remember reading that if the FO doesn't Franchise Joe E-Lite, then they will not use the F/T at all? Am I correct in having read that?

1. I wonder why the FO would sorta "tip their hand" so to speak, especially in reference to Kruger and Ellerbe's pending contracts? Wouldn't it be prudent have the tag available?

2. We have some bright stars on the horizon in Upshaw, Jackson on Dee and Doss and Pierce on Oh, I suppose what we're hearing is we're going to give them a chance to mature before our next strong run at the SB!

One thing I'm sure about: we'll have an interesting team next year, probably another winning one (although the schedule is really nasty), and we'll support it with the same passion.

Oh, and considering that Matt Birk does more than typical Centers do, it's a good shot that Gino Gradkowski, his heir-apparent, will be up to the task?

I can't wait to win it all again this upcoming season! The motivation should be what Jacoby Jones was saying: "I want everybody to go back to sleep on us like they did already."!! Go Ravens!!! :)

Yes, signing bonuses count but not in the same way. Bonuses are pro-rated over the life of the contract (or 5 years, whichever is less). A $20 million bonus on a 5 year contract would "count" $4 million against the cap each year.

You can bet 31 other teams will be paying attention to who we keep and who we let go. They remind me of my dogs at the kitchen table just waiting for something to fall...

@Omar586: I believe you can't give a signing bonus to any of the players on the existing roster even if they restructure or extend their contract. You can only give to to a player that is acquired newly.

Well atleast we won't have a boring offseason. Things will be done to this team that will change it drastically, and we will be happy about some and sad about others, but we just have to trust the FO. But no matter what, the Ravens are going to look very different next season.

Does and Williams together couldn't fill one of Anquan's shoes let alone both of them. If that were to be our plan upon releasing Boldin it would be a huge mistake.

The only offseason question I have is how good that Super Bowl ring is going to look on the fingers of our players :)
