  • Ravens acquire Bucs' Douglas

    In need of defensive line help, the Baltimore Ravens remembered a face from long ago, trading for Buccaneers defensive end Marques Douglas.

    Tampa Bay traded Douglas, 31, for a low draft choice in 2009 and a conditional draft choice in 2010.

    The Ravens needed a lineman after losing defensive end Dwan Edwards for the season. Edwards, who has been struggling with a back injury, was put on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Douglas entered the league with the Ravens as an undrafted player coming out of Howard University in 1999.

    After spending the 2000 season in New Orleans, Douglas went back to Baltimore, where he played from 2001 to 2004. He joined former Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Nolan in San Francisco from 2005 to 2007 as a free agent.

    Douglas started 47 of 48 games with the 49ers, and had 71 tackles last season.

    The Buccaneers signed Douglas to a four-year, $10.1 million contract this offseason, but his playing time came into question when the team re-signed Kevin Carter.

    The Bucs didn't take a cap hit in the trade to the Ravens because they gave Douglas a $1 million base salary and a $1.6 million roster bonus. The Ravens assume the $2.6 million obligation this season.
    Per ESPN.

    Those picks better not be any higher then a 5th Round pick.

      + We also released Dan Cody.

      Ravens waived DE/OLB Dan Cody.
      Cody is healthy; the team is finally cutting ties with him. A stud end at Oklahoma and former second-round pick, Cody couldn't stay off the shelf during his three offseasons in Baltimore. He's a long shot to help elsewhere.

            They sucked this pre-season but had some injuries, I really see us on track for a top 3-6 pick.

              I like getting Douglas back, but Jesus Christ for 2 ****** picks........FIRE OZZIE!

              as for our defense, Im not expecting much. Our 2 best players on D not named Lewis (Ngata, and Reed) have both already been injured so I dont expect them to play full seasons. McAlister and Rolle havent sniffed the field yet so they'll start slow especially Samari. Then take into account our offense goin 3 n out more often this year then any other and I look for something around a 2-14 finish.

                I was pretty shocked when I logged on to the Buccaneers page and saw we were trading Douglas. I can only assume it is because other players such as Jimmy Wilkerson have really stepped up so far.
