In short, this is going to let us do a deal with Flacco in a year he is NOT superbowl MVP.
If they do a trade year three, does the prorated signing bonus come back to bite the Ravens in the ass? Probably more of a general question than just to you BP.
Ozzie is no dummy, but this deal seems too big to not
hurt the Ravens in some way.
