  • Suggs to be franchised

    Looks like Suggs won't be on the FA market. I guess I was wrong about this one, but I don't get how they can franchise him with the LB tag and not the DE tag, when he plays so much DE in that defense. It's not like most other 3-4 teams because the Ravens switch their base so much.

      I told everybody this was gonna happen, because Ozzie said this at the beginning of last year after negotiations fell through.

          how do they determine which position the player is franchised under? Is it % of snaps at the position? Seems like it could be debatable for some guys, and the team would obviously want it to be the lower costing of the two, whereas the player would want the opposite.
          Any insight?

              Per the Baltimore Sun the Ravens currently have $5 million to $6 million in cap space. So they'll need to do some work to make room for Suggs.

                  if Ogden and mcnair retire than that will help

                  EDIT: Heap just restructured his contract also giving 1.7 mil in more cap

                          Not surprising... Is the third best player in Ravens' defense (Ray Lewis and Ed Reed).

                              Chris McAlister had problems with injuries, but Ngata and Gregg are also great players. I'd say the Ravens have the #2 defense in the NFL.
