Once again, I see this as a solid signing, but ultimately unspectacular. I'd rather have one Gronkowski or Graham than Daniels and Pitta.
??? Ravens older? They add a TE who is an ancient 31 to a 1 year deal. Steve Smith is older, but fast and agressive. Their offense is young, OL is young or in prime. WRs Brown was a rookie, Torrey Smith is young, Pitta is young. They also have Jones in his prime. + several developmental projects from last year at TE and WR. They are young on defense as well, especially in the secondary. Ravens aren't old. They also have a lot of draft picks
1,2,3,3,4,4. Newsome uses the compensatory pick system to perfection picking up salary cap released players and making fair offers to his own players, if they accept the deal fineif not he lets them walk and takes the compensatory pick. Ravens have 3 comp picks in 2015 already. It's what the we USED to do years ago. Kubiak brings in a familiar face, knows the system and Kubiak uses a 2 TE formation. Gronk? Can't stay healthy for 3
weeks in a row. Graham is a beast best in NFL for sure. Daniels turned down GB and Washington. He was on pace to have his best season ever last year, but broke his leg. Rather broken leg than a ligament tear or knee.
