      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

The Ravens 2014 Cut post

11 posts in this topic

Was really excited to see what Furst could do, but I guess he really wasn't as great as we all hoped he'd be.

"To make room on the roster, the #Ravens cut TE Matt Furstenburg, OLB D.J. Bryant and DT Cody Larsen."

Interesting. All 3 were on the PS last year iirc. So that opens up some spots on the PS. It will be interesting to see who takes their spots.

No way they cut Furstenburg!! He was supposed to be the teams savior (according to a lot of posters) when Dickson and Clark were dropping passes and Pitta was hurt.

I'm surprised they cut Furstenburg.  I was never one of those clamoring for him to be on the team, but I do think he has enough talent to at least stick through training camp.  If anything, I'm more surprised that they cut Furst over Nathan Overbay.

Isn't obvious why they're keeping Nathan Overbay?

I always hoped he would be something more. Mostly because he went to Maryland.

I think a lot of posters were also sick of seeing Clark & Dickson stinking it up and wanted to see the young guy get a chance.

I'm not all that shocked about that. Overbay is a massize 6'5 270 man, so we can assume he can block. Good size can also indicate a good RZ target. Furstenburg was essentially a Pitta clone. We already have Daniels who can receive and we have Juice who, while he isn't a TE, is also comparable to Pitta as a receiving threat.

 

Simply put, I think we cut Furstenburg instead of Overbay because Overbay offers a different skill set, while Furst offers more of the same.

Well put. I think him being cut might be good for him. He may end up on a squad where playing time is more a realistic possibility.

That makes sense for sure.  Even though I was never a proponent of Furst on the active roster, I still do believe he was at least talented enough to keep around through training camp.  I guess he didn't show much over rookie camp this weekend.
