View Full Version : Ravens in talks with Marvel Smith

I'm too lazy to find the link, but check Rotoworld. It looks like he'll be competing w/ Big Willie for the RT job. Honestly, I think Marvel could be a much better RT than the LT he was in Pittsburgh, so this is a very intriguing pickup in my eyes.

I dunno, what do you guys think?

Ehhh would depend on the contract really. I much rather see Cousins, Hale and Terry get a chance as opposed to spending big money on a position not in need.

It depends on the contract. Big Willie is playing for a very reasonable contract. Oniel Cousins was supposed to be a very athletic LT coming out. He got in all those fights this summer. That should have answered questions about his intensity. I'd love for him to get a go at RT if he can surpass Big Willie.

David Hale was a big time WTF pick.

I doubt Ozzie will overpay for a guy who has proven so far to be an incredibly mediocre OT in the pros...at least I hope I hope not.

Jesus, can Ozzie just freakin sign Suggs to a longterm contract? I don't give a rats ass about Foxworth or Smith. Both are average at the best and Suggs is a star, not to mention very young and his best days ahead of him. GET IT DONE OZZIE!

Ugh I really would rather us keep Willie and let him and Terry and Cousins either fight it outright or platoon it at RT. Spend the money on a WR/TE.

Or just save the money !?? So we can resign Hgata and Gaither and Reed and Suggs to extensions.

As well if Flacco has a great season you don't think we are going to need to pony up serious cash for him??

Oh just thought I'd throw this bit of into in. Marvel Smith has had a history of injuries and he's 30 years old. I see absolutly NO POINT, in signing him. He was part of an o-line that gave up 40+ sacks last year and IMO we should have no business wasting our time on him. SUGGS AND GAITHER PLEASE!

Why are we trying to get this walking injury?
