I say we should do everything in our power the get Free Saftey Jairus Byrd.

 

First of all, I do not want to wait to develop a free safety. The main reason why is becuase we should not be rebuilding we should be Reloading. We need to win now and should be trying to win more superbowls.

 

There is no shame in trying to Buy a Superbowl. We did it with the 2000 defense so why not do it again?

 

Second, Byrd will complete an already Solid Secondary. Smith, Webb, Elam, and Byrd. We will be right there with the Seahawks as the 1-2 best Secondary in the NFL.

 

Couple that with a healthy pass rush from Doom and Sizzle you you got a special defense.

 

Thrid, if we have an opportunity to assemble another great defense even close to the one of 2000. You gotta do it!

 

Let's face it Joe Flacco is not the guy to carry a team on his shoulders and he will never be an MVP (in the Regualr season that is).

We can dream, but its not gonna happen. Not enough cap room,  and if it would happen, it would create too many holes at other positions (since we probably won't be able to resign Monroe/Pitta/Smith, etc then)

that would be a great move to our defense but his buying price would be entirely more than we're willing to spend on one person.

Chill with so many new threads, man.  I know you're new, but keep it to a minimum.

 

To answer the thread, it's not going to happen.  He's going to cost too much and we have too many of our own guys that are due for contracts.

Would we pay Byrd if the bogus salary cap did not exist?

Im tired of the mentally that we can't afford to draft a playmaker and let him starter because we in a win right now mode . Tell me what team isn't in a win right now mode?  Believe it or not the Ravens wont be able to afford Jairus Byrd at all unless he seriously decides to accepts to be paid less money .

Not to mention that ownership wants to keep this team competive every year. Buying a Super Bowl by adding a bunch of high price free agents means they'll have to blow up the team in a year or two and totally rebuild.

Remember 2002-2008?

There is this little thing called the salary cap that stops this from happening.

I agree in part, even when we were beating up QB's up front the backend wasn't holding up because neither Huff or Elam can play deep coverage. With that said we are in cap hell and Byrd is a pipe dream.

we dont go after high priced players in FA, we will draft somebody .

We're not bringing in any new safeties. Ihedigbo will be re-signed and Elam will be next to him. Harbaugh made it clear in the press conference that they'll both be back next season. The safety play was ok, not great or bad. No need to spend all our dough to upgrade the safety position, it's not that important. Guys like Art Jones and other FA's are a priority.

Personally I think we should trade for Revis and move him to safety.

I doubt the Ravens get him in free agency this year. The safety position in the draft is really weak this year, so that naturally would increase his worth.With the ravens to many other needs to get locked up by one guy.  He would probably got a much better contract with teams with more cap room.

Hogwash. They made it clear that FS was a priority. We lacked playmakers.
