They will definitely draft an ILB this season as well. Plus they are not finished developing S. Sylvester and they like M. Ivy a lot
Is that the word they use for not playing sylvester, developing?

What does everyone think?
DQ and Dan Connor would be great fits; they are upgrades from an older Farrior and Foote who is not anywhere near as good as he was in 05. I would love to see this upgrade but with our FA issues can we afford it? I hope they can work it out.

RAVENS will take him, that is one AREA (Linebackers corp) that needs to be address in F.A or Draft.

Oh and he is a freaking Beast, very underrated for someone that does get alot of praise too.

There is no way in hell the Ravens will want to pay an ILB the money DQJ wants. They will draft an ILB like they always do and let him learn behind Gay Lewis

I'm excited about Sylvester. With him, Worilds, Woodley and Timmons we have a really good young starting core. And, we still have Harrison for a year or two also. Draft a few LBs for depth over the next 2 years and we'll be set.

With our cap situation there is no way we sign any expensive FA's. It is not going to happen.

IMO it makes way more sense to target the best free agent nose tackle to replace Hampton. 3-4 nose tackles don't typically get paid a ton of $. It shouldn't be hard to find a NT who is just as good as Hampton, but cheaper. Then use the draft to pick up an OG and an ILB.
