Rob Burnett told NFL Radio that Ogden told him he is done. He said he would let the team know before the draft. Sorry I can't link but I heard it on NFL Radio.

Looks like Clady or Albert may be the pick now.

Well if this is real and a link can come soon, it's big news. Not sure if it affects their first round though, they still need a QB pretty badly.

Ah well... off to canton I guess.

Not necessarily. Sirius radio is usually a little ahead of the game. Most news I get, comes out on Sirius radio and then I get a link a few hours later from ESPN because ESPN is terrible.

I should probably change my sig and take Clady out of it. :(

Jared Gaither will start at LT next year, or Adam Terry and Gaither at RT. I dont think they go tackle in the first. QB and some of their dline, secondardy, and linebackers to me are bigger needs then tackle.

Why does this change draft needs?

I thought the Ravens were high on Gathier from the supplemental draft?

People are really forgetting Jared Gaither. We took him so he could be JO's replacement. The FO was anticipating the retirement, so it won't really change anyone's plans.

They were, but Gaither is unbelievably raw. He wont be ready next year...but Clady might not be either!

Exactly what I'm saying. We have a replacement already on the roster!

If Gaither entered the draft this year, they would be the same level. But Gaither was still able to get at least one year under his belt already, so he's ahead of Clady in terms of experience.

Gathier was picked late in the 5th round of that draft. I was just wondering if he was a first round caliber LT, he would have went higher. That's my thinking at least. At least ahead of Paul Oliver.

The Ravens have Terry and Gaither who will likely battle for the Tackle spots not to mention Marshall Yanda who they took in the 3rd last year who also started a few games at Tackle last year. Tackle depth will be addressed in the draft but this by no means changes our plans for Day 1. This was an anticipated move by Ogden and will not come as a surprise to the Ravens. To think this changes anything is ridiculous.

I don't think this impacts their draft plans. Most indications have been that they've been planning for Ogden's retirement, and as such, OT was always a rumored possibility. Yanda may be better off inside long run, Gaither is an unknown, and they are very lukewarm on Terry right now, it seems (and Terry's contract is done after 2009).

Now that said, they also recently suggested that, if Gaither was in the draft, he'd be a 2nd round pick. That seems like a strong signal of sorts. My best guess, though, is that, barring immense tackle value, they'll pass in the first 2 rounds, with the idea of Gaither at LT and Yanda at RT, but that they might select someone in the 4th/5th round, perhaps a Kirk Barton that could come in and challenge at RT sooner than later.

This really helps the DL's of the AFC North. But to be honest Ogden has allready lost alot in his game and IMO was the 3rd best LT in the north behind Levi Jones and Joe Thomas. I think everyone and their grandma exspected Ogden to hang them up this year.

Popping off something on radio and writing up an article are two separate processes, let alone an article about the retirement of a future Hall of Famer.

In radio, the producer just tells the broadcaster what to say, and the personality does his thing. In articles, the writer gets told the story, and he writes it up while having to make sure what he says is true; no saying "Well, Ogden's been to what, 7 Pro Bowls?", etc. Then, it gets edited and then released. Thats why links are much more credible than word of mouth from radio broadcasts.

Actually my grandma was predicting a Pro Bowl year from Ogden.

Everyone in the world predicted a pro bowl year for Ogden. Why? Because hes been there the last 8 plus years and it might be his last chance. That has nothing to do with the injuries that have greatly slowed down his production.

That's not entirely accurate, a producer designs the timeslots and what stories make the news or the agenda. The actual talent (reader) writes their own script (most of the time) and has a fact checker check it.

If you've only just graduated as a journalist your low level starting job is usually as a fact checker followed then by a low level editing job before reporting and then editing and then finally producing.

No we dont need a QB at all! The pick at 8 should be McKelvin or trade back, Matt Ryan sucks and none of the other QBs are worth the 8th pick.

I was talking about "Breaking News!" rather than just normal topics, scores, etc. I was watching Mike and Mike in the Morning when the announcement of Favre's retirment came out, and Mike Greenberg said that they had received huge news. He was handed a sheet of paper, and was talking to someone off camera (Who I assumed was the producer) asking if he should read it then or off camera. He then revealed Favre's retirement. But, that sheet of paper probably has many key facts laid out, and I'm by means no authority on any form of media's processes.

Anyway, my main point was to try to illustrate my thinking on why it'd be easier to get things out faster on radio than an article on a website, let alone one as conservative as ESPN.

ya i definitely think 1st ballot HOF. Besides Walter Jones whom is probably a 1st ballot HOF too, Odgen is one of the best most dominant OT in the NFL in the past decade. Has a Super Bowl ring too just to add onto his resume.

Again showing your ignorance. Terry is a former 2nd round pick, Gaither was a project brought in just for JO's retirement and Yanda is a year removed from being a 3rd round pick. Thats why you don't throw another young guy in because the roster is already full with 3 of them to compete for the 2 spots. Tackle will likely be addressed on Day 2 barring some top pick slipping, that or an unexpected June cut.
