On the defensive side of the ball do we add Adalius Thomas? He is more then likely out in NE and he still has a lot of tread left on his tires.

If there a FA CB we could bring in? Frank Walker clearly hasn't played well all season and we need another physical CB.

Thoughts?

I'm not so sure that Thomas has a lot (if any) tread left on the tires. NE's pass-rush is pretty bad itself and he can't get anything done there.

Adalius would be a bench warmer in mattison system. and I would like for us to draft like a 4th-5th round project to try to develop. But our coaching staff loves Walker for whatever reason I will admit he placed nice today.

Fox,Washington,Webb is a nice trio if WAshington and Webb can be 100% next season

I think its safe to say that AD was a product of the "Organized Chaos" scheme of Rex Ryan and is not welcomed back in Baltimore.

Corner is definitely something that should be addressed in the offseason depending upon the free agent class and upcoming draft class.

Another area I feel should be addressed is Wide Receiver as well as Returner.

Not that we need (or could afford) him but imagine Ngata and Wilfork on the same line.

A name to think about for receiver is Eagles wideout Jason Avant. Eagles' fans like him a lot. He's more of a physical possession receiver at this point, but he would compliment DWill well. He'd also come relatively cheap.

I'm really hoping we can convince Mason to come back another year, but even with him, we need to add another receiver. Malcolm Floyd is another name people have being throwing around.

I would love to agree with that comment, but I just can't. To me his signing was a precautionary one in case of injury to Heap which didn't happen. Once that is said, he had no place in this offense. Frankly I don't know if anyone can actually figure this offense out from one week to the next.

I feel like if you guys could bring in Antonio Bryant as a FA you would be much much improved and he gives you the #1 WR Flacco has never had. I really think you guys can go deep this year but getting someone like Bryant would be very scary to the rest of the AFC I think.

I feel like Bryant would be a huge bust and has too many character concerns for Harbaugh and Ozzie to go after.

It should be noted that we can't sign any FAs unless we lose some of our own because we made the final 8. Yet another thing that sucks about an uncapped season.

that sucks. but here's who I think we should sign

I've been saying his name for a while now-

MALCOLM FLOYD!! I love this guys size. He would give Flacco that big target he's never had. Sure, he's not an elite talent, but I would much rather have Flacco throwing those fades and bombs to a 6-5 Floyd, than a 5-11 Clayton or Mason. I think he would fit our offense nicely.

As for Antonio Bryant, I think Harbaugh will have none of it. Last offseason, Ozzie and Steve B. wanted to bring in Mike Vick, and Harbaugh was the only one who said no. It's clear he want's nothing to do with players with criminal backgrounds or character concerns. I guess, that will also close the door on Brandon Marshall and maybe even Dwayne Bowe coming to Baltimore.

Key Additions all depend on the players the team chooses to re-sign. I see the Ravens resigning Le'Ron McClain, Mark Clayton, Dawan Landry, Jared Gaither, Sam Koch, and Marshall Yanda. Which means Mason will retire, Demetrius Williams, Kelley Washington, LJ Smith, Antwan Barnes, Justin Bannan, and probably gone.
- Look for the team to try to improve upon these 3 areas:
1) Wide Receiver
2) Cornerback
3) 3-4 Defensive End

+ Wideout is our biggest need and either Anquan Boldin, Malcolm Floyd, Antonio Bryant, and Brandon Marshall could very well end up being a Baltimore Raven next year. Also, top notch cornerbacks like: Terrence Newman, Corey Webster, Cedric Griffin, Marlin Jackson, and Richard Marshall could all be free agents this preseason, so it would be nice to pick up one of those playmakers. Veterans Kelly Gregg, and Trevor Pryce are getting older, so younger defensive lineman will be needed as well. Some possible free agents that would improve our d-line are:
- Luis Castillo, Barry Cofield, Dusty Dvoracek, and even Richard Seymour

In my dream world, the Ravens sign Brandon Marshall, Luis Castillo, and Terrence Newman, now that'd be nucking futs!

This isnt entirely true. Heres a quote from the salary cap guy at ravens24x7

"the 4 teams that lose in the Divisional round are also subject to the same restrictions, but those 4 teams are also allowed to sign one UFA, whose first year salary is in the $5-6M range, and an unlimited number of UFAs as they can whose first year salary is in the $3-4M range. Those ranges are approximate and will be indexed based on the increases in league’s total revenue since 2006."

The final four teams can only sign UFA's to replace players they lost to free agency.

I would still rather see us advance far in these playoffs than worry about this though.

Well, I guess there's a lot of confusion as to what's what about the uncapped year lol. What i posted was pretty much a summary of an Adam Schefter tweet from Sunday.

I agree though, let's hope that we WON'T be able to sign any UFA to replace the ones we lost :D.

Malcolm Floyd and Jason Avant are two cheap but explosive playmakers that could help Flacco out a lot. How about Antonio Bryant?
- Adding Luis Castillo would be amazing
