Default Ratbirds interested in Marvel

http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/f...7.story?page=2

Note:
The Ravens continued talks with free-agent offensive tackle Marvel Smith, 30, the Pittsburgh Steelers' starting left tackle for nine seasons. If the Ravens sign Smith, it could lead to the release of Willie Anderson, which would free up $2.9million of salarycap space. ... Jason Brown, the Ravens' starting center last season, officially signed his five-year, $37.5million contract with St.Louis. "To tell you the truth, I was hoping to stay at home with the Ravens," Brown said at his Rams news conference. "Many players would like to stay with the team that drafted them and would like to finish their careers there. ... Unfortunately, there's a separation between business and the personal side of football, and they had to make a business decision."

thbis is nto the whole article is is mostly about ray ray.

Wow-the Ravens are really getting hit hard in FA.

If there's anything good for them in '09, is that at least they finally have a QB for the long term.

James Harrison gets handled pretty well by Jared Gathier. They will not move Gathier from LT. The idea would be to start Smith at RT, so it would be Woodley vs. Smith a couple times a year.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the MAJOR reason the Steelers let Smith go is his injury. So the Rats are foolish to chase this deal...

But that's a good thing, IMO. 8-8 Rats next year...

First willie anderson now marvel

maybe the rats can make it work....

I doubt it though, this back problems only seem fine by smith's own standards. if not the steelers would have at least attempted to resign him

For some reason-back problems just never go away. That's exactly what short-circuited Charles Barkley's and Larry Bird's careers.
