He probably saw Ryan Clark demolish McGahee in the AFC Championship Game last year and decided he didn't wanna face Clark (or Polamalu, Gay, and Ike).

Congrats to the 2009 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins

Poor, poor Ratfinks. Sucks to be them.


Veteran WR Bennett retires two days after signing with Ravens
Associated Press

BALTIMORE -- Wide receiver Drew Bennett announced his retirement from the NFL on Sunday night, just two days after signing with the Baltimore Ravens in an effort to rekindle his career.

Bennett signed a one-year deal after a tryout Friday. But he aggravated an old knee injury during the workout, and after returning home to Nashville, Tenn., the 30-year-old receiver decided to quit.

"A previous knee injury flared up, making me realize that I am unable to play another NFL season," Bennett said in statement distributed by his agent, Steve Caric. "Therefore, I have decided to retire from the National Football League."

Bennett's decision comes after Derrick Mason surprised the Ravens by announcing his retirement on July 13. Although Mason has left open the possibility of returning, Baltimore is currently very slim at wide receiver.

Bennett played one game with the St. Louis Rams last season because of a foot injury. Over an eight-year career, he has 307 catches for 4,412 yards and 28 touchdowns.

Bennett expected to add to those numbers this season, but things didn't work out as planned.

"The Ravens are a first-class organization that I was truly excited to join," Bennett said. "After an offseason of workouts and rehab, I thought I was ready to play again, but it became apparent over this weekend that while my mind is willing, my body will not be able to make it through another NFL season.

"I have been blessed to have the opportunity to play in the NFL for as long as I have, but it is time for me to move on to the next chapter in my life."

Bennett's most productive season was in 2004, when he had 80 catches for 1,247 yards and 11 touchdowns with the Tennessee Titans.

When the Ravens open training camp Monday, their most accomplished receivers will be Mark Clayton and Demetrius Williams.

This sort of thing normally happens with the "New" Browns..not the Old ones.

Ironically mangini looked at bringing this guy in for a bit, but decided against it.
Don't Blame Me, I don't have any control over the Browns.
