Interesting.  Clearing space for a potential move somewhere?  Otherwise, it makes no sense to do it now.

 

#Ravens restructured CB Lardarius Webb's contract to clear cap space today. Converted $4M of his $7.5M base salary to a signing bonus.

Clears $3M this year.  That's an awful lot to clear for no reason.

Definitely a trade coming, but for what position? I'd guess CB, but Idk.

Maybe not a trade. Perhaps an extension for Torrey or Jimmy?

Webb has to be happy.  He goes to the castle today and gets a check for $4M.

Wow ... that is a tell, for sure. We already had 4M available, so to do this now would indicate something significant. It would seem it would have to be in the works already, for us to make what would appear to be a preemptive move. 

 

I'm pretty sure that any move that would require that kind of additional space - if it involves a trade - that trade won't be met by moving Deonte Thompson or Josh Bynes. If such a thing comes to pass, we'll be parting with a significant future draft pick, I would suspect.

Good point - that too is a possibility. But no doubt, to do this now indicates something is up.

Good for Lardarius, good for us.

 

Maybe this is the harbinger for bigger news? Maybe they're just clearing space to have on-hand for bargain-hunting in the next round of cuts?

This move gives the team over $7 million in cap space.Ozzie has to be doing this because has his eye on someone.I'm about to take a look at what cb's are in the last year or two of their deals.I don't think we have an other position that needs a player that would require that much cap space unless Owen Daniels recovering leg is worst than is being reported.

An extension wouldn't change Torrey or Jimmy's cap number for this year.

If that's true, I'd cut that dude before his salary gets guaranteed

Either extension for another player or trade.

What team would trade a valuable asset before the season tho......besides the Pats.

Trade for DL/DE to remove Cody or upgrade Canty? Trade for a vet corner? Trade for another TE to remove Daniels? I'm excited and don't what I'm excited about. lol

It would be too simple to trade for a corner...instead they'll trade for a position no one expects or wants.

But lets say its a corner..we can narrow it down by:

looking for a team outside of the division.

Not looking at a contender

A corner and with only 1-3 years left or not playing on their rookie contract

A team who realistically doesnt expect much from this year


Texans
Raiders
Rams
