Could the Ravens replace Ray Lewis with an outside veteran?

Go with a rookie in the draft..teach him good...train him hard...show him film...and mold him into the next legendary Ravens LB. That way we don't have an old player retire after we win another super bowl! ;) #RavensNation

No need for any of these guys. They're all free agents for a reason; either old or just bad. Maualuga is AWFUL. Why else would a pathetic organization like Cincinnati let him go. This article reminded me of another ex-Raven in Tavares Gooden who left Baltimore to enter oblivian without Ray Lewis, ala Bart Scott. Off topic a bit, saw some of the combine on NFL network. Seriously, I think I'd rather go to the dentist than sit through 30 seconds of that crap!

We need some baby boys on the team, drive them Ball So Hard, hiring the older veterans is like a nursing home, they all hurt and nursing something

All Bart Scott does is run his mouth. Way slower than anyone on d now. Pass on him.

re-sign Ellerbe, draft either Kevin Minter or Manti Te'o and let Josh Bynes get some snaps when the season begins and our ILB position should be ok.

Go to the draft to get a ILB but if we loose Ellerbe I wouldn't mind seeing Brian Urlacher depending on price he brings allot of leadership can cover pretty well and does a fair job blitzing if he goes for like 1-2 mil a season on a single year deal he could be a stud stopgap player

Wow what a decision for the front office. This weekend and the pro days will factor in to what they end up doing.

No real way to tell who's best until you chat with them and see them up close.

I remember Bisciotti asking why not Asante Samuel over Ed Reed...those front office guys do their job pretty darn good

Henderson is easily the best in that group and the only all-rounder.

Just do what we always do. Get hungry young guys, let them compete, and the rest will take care of itself. You will always be chasing a ghost trying to find the next Ray Lewis. We didn't know how good Ray was in 96, and same for Ngata,Reed, and Suggs. Part of the reason we remain competitive IS because we don't mortgage the future with FA's like some teams. We always have depth, and don't over-pay for washed up guys. Oz and the boys will do well. Can't wait til draft day!!!

Ill pass on all of them . Give me Ellerbeast any day. McClain next to him for next year and a rookie learning from both of them and let Bynes continue to deveope maybe even take over for MCClain by the end of training camp. And No Te'o. He is not a Raven!

I like the idea of bringing in Maualuga. He's the only real promising younger guy on this list. Outside of that, draft Teo and call it a day.

There are a few can't miss guys each year at ILB, but none are ever available by the time we pick, because we are SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS. But it is not just about drafting; it is also about coaching and developing. Look at all the LBs we have drafted late and became starters, jumped ship for money(can't really blame a guy for going for the paycheck), and got lost in mediocrity on their new team. If I'm not mistaken, both Ellerby and McClain were late or undrafted. It is just the Ravens way and it works.

I would rather have Ellerbe than anyone available right now, inluding the draft.
