I'm sure their searching message boards for random fans' inputs...

 

They're searching somewhere for their info. Gossip spreads like a wildfire, my friend.

You're delusional if you truly think you started this rumor.

When you brush something off as "hearsay" after saying you have information from people "close to the situation", it sounds about as ambiguous and hazy as can be. Either you have something or you don't. And, if you don't, it's just a way to cover your butt while getting some attention to the show.

Color me unconvinced.

How true, how true. My favorite is the old "....according to an unidentified sorce close to the team......"

I highly doubt that this is true.
If I were going for an injury prone WR who has a lot of depth behind them id go for Hakeem Nicks

That's just me tho

I can't get excited or upset about this yet - it all depends on what we would trade to get him. I don't know why anyone else has formed their opinion on this already. We don't know his price tag yet.

And none of them has 9 felony charges...

Don't care, if Ozzie felt that was OK then I would be completely on board with it. It's not like we would trade a high draft pick for him.

Very good? Ok.

Nate Washington has put up good numbers. He's a good WR. Kendall Wright is injured but for how long we don't know. Hunter could become a Torrey Smith. It's hard to say. Damian Williams has looked really good this preseason. Kenny Britt has legit talent but he's got legit character concerns as well. This is one of the better WR corps in the league.

Nicks would also be way harder to obtain...

What does everyone make of the rumour put out there by Purple Reign saying that:

 

#Ravens reportedly exploring trades for Titans WR Kenny Britt. Would be a HUGE upgrade over their current options opposite Torrey Smith.

 

 

I don't know much about them, so I was wondering how credible they are as a rumour source?

Would love this idea, but he wouldn't be too durable i'd imagine

Hakeem Nicks would leave after a year since we couldn't pay him and Torrey. Britt wouldn't command nearly as much.

I really wanted Kenny Britt in 2009 draft. The guy is extreemly talented.

He only has one year left on his contract (this is his "contract" year), and he has a knee that was wrecked over a year ago that is now swelling on him during the preseason. He has off the field DUI's, and runinns with the po-po.

I would give nothing more than a 6th rounder as the Titans are not likely to keep Britt past this season anyway. We could take a chance like this and not really lose. Besides we let Anquan go for a 6th rounder under similar circumstances, so swapping Anquan for Britt doesn't sound horrible. We are rid of under achievers in Reid & Doss, and have very promising Mellette & Brown.

I say go for it because he is still young, and when healthy can be one of the most dominant receivers in the game.

As a Raven's fan... I would LOVE to see this happen, even though I doubt it's anything more than just word of mouth. I'm not worried about off-the-field troubles.... Let's not forget Ray Lewis's incident... And the fact we picked up Donte Stallworth in the past after he pleaded to DUI Manslaughter... Injuries... Not too worried about that. All it takes is one season, and whether you want to admit it or not... Kenny is an upgrade from Jacoby and Brandon. If for a 4th, 5th, or 6th rounder... I'd go for it. I'd still like to see Mellette and Brown out there on the field too. Either way... In Ozzie We Trust

Off the field issues is just half of it. He cant stay healthy and as a result has contributed very little in his career to the tune of 19 TDs in 4 years with half coming in 2010 alone. 5th/6th round flyer and Im cool with it.

Yeah. It's a big if, but just like how it is in all sports... Sometimes a change in scenery can spark a player as far as performance wise and efforts to get and stay healthy. If San Fran can snatch Anquan for a 6th after what he did last year, doubt we'd have to give up more than that for Kenny Britt. It's a low risk, high reward imo

I personally think we should sign Dwyer as RB. He is a local kid and would love the opportunity to play his heart out for us when needed.

I'm actually really happy with our receiver situation right now and the Tandon Doss cut. I have always witnessed our organization give low-round/undrafted rookies opportunities to gain adequate playing time on the defense, but never really the offense. I love seeing these underdogs come in and grab the league by storm, similar to what RB Alfred Morris and WR Victor Cruz have done. I really believe Marlon Brown has the ability to play in this league, and to think that his chemistry with Joe has only just begun. This season our offense is going to really take form under Caldwell, and I am very excited. However, I do believe the Flacco and his receivers will perform better later in the season as the weeks go on. Can't wait! :)

Uh....Isaac Redman is the local kid out of Bowie State. Dwyer is from Georgia.

Numbers don't always tell the whole story. For example you say he's contributed very little with only 19TDs in 4yrs. But Boldin only produced 14TDs in 3yrs and half came in one year(2010), but no way would any of us say Boldin hasn't been a big contributor for us, even without the big playoff run.

I'm not saying Britt is Boldin, but I do think the guy is much better then many give him credit for. Again you mention how he hasn't done much in 4yrs but it's really only a 3yr career because injury took his 2011 season. Btw he was really looking like 2011 would be his breakout season with dominant performances over the first 2 week before injury hit in week 3.

Also we have to remember what this guy was surround by and the QBs throwing him the ball. Last year was the only season where he didn't produce at least 16.7ypc and imo it's because he didn't have his full explosiveness back. I'm hearing people say if he's healthy then he's a upgrade to our WR corp. Imo he's an upgrade right now, but if he's 100% then he and Torrey would make up a scary duo and quickly become one of the best in the AFC.
