    Some key free agents coming up, will Welker play elsewhere? I would like to the Patriots sign Bowe away from KC. A talent like that could really shine there and rejuvenate an older Brady. Osi would be a nice D line addition and resign Talib. The young Defense should be even better next season.

    Ravens have 22 free agents. In todays NFL can't sign them all. Ed Reed may be heading your way edddymon .

    Vegas says Pats favored to win it all next year. Man I love Vegas.

    Vegas odds merely reflect what people are betting for the most part.

    Good player but would rather go younger at that position.

    Expect the Browns to force the Ravens into using the exclusive Franchise clause because they likely will be making an offer to Flacco. Win win because it commits 20 million to the Ravens roster or the Browns possibly can get a franchise QB.

    They won't let him go but it will force them to make some cuts elsewhere.

    The Ravens don't want to give Flacco a Drew Brees contract, but if they don't, someone will.

    They supposedly cannot franchise him because the cap hit would be too hard for them, so they are going to have to give him a 5/100 deal. He has all the leverage, and both his agent and Ozzie Newsome know it.

    Doesn't make any sense to franchise Flacco . To big of a hit to the cap. He will be a lifetime Raven and get what he wants. 100 million dollar man

    You have to offer him 20 million a year for him to stay a Raven. He won't stay for 15 or 10 million and take a home town discount. Right now the Ravens are 5 million over the cap so they have three options.

    Work a deal for a number that Flacco and the Ravens can live with. If they can't work it out then two other options will play out in March.

    Offer Flacco a non-exclusive Franchise tag. This means a team like the Browns or Bucs can make an offer and if signed to another team, the Ravens would get 1st round compensation.

    Offer Flacco an exclusive Franchise tag. That means he has to be paid the average of the top 3 paying QB"s. This will be a 20 million dollar cap hit for this year.

    Personally I don't believe he will leave but in keeping him, it will gut the Ravens of some of their restricted and unrestricted FA's. Yes there are ways around it by restructuring numerous contracts but when a team has to take a 20 million dollar hit, its not good unless they have cap space.

    They should have took care of his contract last year. They would have gotten him for a cheaper deal.

    The wizard of Ozzie will take care of this. This time theres no Brian Billick around to disrupt the personel process following a championship win. The Ravens might have a down yearin 13 but Ozzie will find the guys. Ozzie is a great GM.

    Ozzie is the best in the biz.

    He obviously doesn't think Flacco is a 100 million dollar man, but if you let him go, are you willing to role the dice on being able to find that guy that twenty plus teams in the league are looking for year after year?

    There is no way in hell Ozzie lets him go, and they can't franchise him according to ESPN because of the cap hit, and I am going to take their word on that until proven otherwise.

    I would be absolutely FLOORED if Joe Flacco isn't under center for the Ravens next year making 20 Million +.

    Oh I imagine he will be playing for the Ravens but he just won a Super Bowl and didn't throw a pick in the playoffs. He will never be in demand as he is right now. The guy will get 20 million whether Ozzie franchises him or signs him to a deal.

    If they don't franchise him, the Browns will offer him 20 million or more just to force the Ravens into a corner. If the Ravens sign him, they have to cut some players. If they let him walk, Browns get a franchise QB and still have 20 million left with their cap. Regardless of any interest by the Browns, its a smart move to force a team in your division to spend more for a player.

    Flacco could have signed a 15 million dollar deal anytime this season but he didn't because he and his agent believe he is an elite QB.

    A Boldin will be a cap casualty for sure. Maybe even Jacoby Jones to.

    Flacco's agent Joe Litna is coming hard. He is talking about Flacco being the highest paid player in the NFL. WTF?

    Eli Manning for a period of time was the highest paid player in the league, so was Sam Bradford. Obviously doesn't mean you are the best. He is going to get 20M plus for a minimum of five years.

    It's good to be Joe.
