Free Agency/Trade Options for Ravens

99 posts in this topic

I said cut Bajema and Clark then sign Jake Ballard and promote Matt Furtsenburg to the active Roster then cut Anthony Levine and Ivory Wade a center/guard who provides depth and versatility at any of the three interior positions

 its not going to happen  especially since Matt Furts is not ready and why would the ravens add ivory wade over what we already have ? he's just another rookie also undrafted  and  there hasnt been any news that he has been impressive in preseason games or training camp as well

Isn't he injured? I really like his potential and size, but that's all he is. Just potential. We already have receivers with potential and a guy with size, Marlon Brown.

 

He had a decent game last year (9 catches 138 yards I believe) against the Panthers, so the potential amounted to a pretty impressive game. Given the dearth of receivers, especially now with Mellette on IR, I think he's worth the shot if he's healthy. To your point he was released on injury settlement, I think for a knee injury

Yea he sure hurt the last team he played for huh? All the hate was just ridiculous.

If he hadn't managed to shove the most lenient ref in the NFL, he would have cost us the Super Bowl.

First, nobody is going to trade anything of value for a TE who is having trouble catching the ball. Second, trades have to make sense, not just done for the sake of turning over inventory. None of the players you have mentioned in this thread are actually better than the ones we have on the roster. None. If they were, they would likely not be available. Third, it's far too early to totally give up on Dickson in favor of a no name. If there is a viable alternative we can get I'm sure we will have them work out for us, like we did with Ballard, but just to do a trade for trades sake is silly. Fourth, the good GMs do their due diligence early and don't have to make trades at the deadline. Im not sure why you are exhalting the Colts GM here -- he sought a trade once they got into a jam with their own RB situation. He didn't just go looking to do a trade for trades sake. He had a player lost for the season and so he made a few calls, so see what was possible. As all GMs, including Ozzie, do regularly. But he didn't just set out to do a trade. If an offer wasn't right, he wasn't going to take it. Nor should Ozzie do any of the suggestions you have made in your thread. The guys who made the 53 man roster did so for a reason. The Ravens liked who they had. In fact, they liked even more than the 53, as evidence from the fact that they filled up their practice squad with people they had already had in camp. At the moment they don't believe there is anyone out there who is available and affordable that would make this team better. If there was they would make the deal.

 

I like to play armchair GM as much as the next guy, but when it comes to posting ideas that are far off field, sometimes its better to just hold your tongue.
