    The dude had a subpar year last year and he is a liar. Said he wanted to play for a contender. Ravens are a good fit for that type of guy.
    2017 Mock

    1. T.J Watt, OLB/DE, Wisconsin - will be a huge mistake if available and we pass

    2. Obi Melifonwu, S, Connecticut

    3. Kevin King, CB, Washington

    3. Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland

    4. Trey Hendrickson, DE, Florida Atlantic

    5. Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M

    6. Barry Sanders, RB, Oklahoma State (How can you go wrong with that name, however the sample size is so small that his dad may be better even in his 50's)

    7. Alec Torgersen, QB, Pennsylvania

    Eh, he may have been nice to sign...but, clearly it's not about winning and that's his prerogative...
    Actually, my post was NOT about you...but, if the shoe fits, feel free to lace that &!+# up and wear it.

    Definite upgrade for the Ratbirds. A lot of money for a 31 year old safety, but I guess they had the cap space to do it.

    Weddle says he chose the Ravens because they made him feel wanted.

    I think it was the money.

    "Money" can do much to make you "feel wanted" when what we are talking about is signing a contract.

    I was one of the biggest Weddle advocates on here. But I said last week that we'll only get him if he's willing to play for a contract similar to the ones we gave to Ladarius Green and Mike Mitchell. If not, he'll play for the Raiders. I was wrong about the team he ended up with.

    He'll surely improve Baltimore's secondary, like I was sure he would have improved ours. But that's a hefty chunk to pay a guy on his 3rd contract, considering what they just had to do to make their single-browed QB's cap hit somewhat palatable again.

    I don't understand Baltimore paying the even older Ben Watson what they did either (even if Dennis Pitta's injuries never allow him to play again, they already have young capable TE's in Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams).

    I respect what Ozzie Newsome does in the draft, but I question his work in free agency.


    Ruthless 2017 Mock Draft:
    1.30 ILB Zach Cunningham 6'3" 234 Vanderbilt
    2.62 OLB Jordan Willis 6'4" 255 Kansas State
    3.94 CB Sidney Jones 6'0" 186 Washington
    3.105c DE Tanoh Kpassagnon 6'7" 289 Villanova
    4.135 CB Howard Wilson 6'1" 184 Houston
    5.173 FS John Johnson 6'1" 205 Boston College
    6.213 TE Michael Roberts 6'4" 270 Toledo
    7.248 RB Elijah Hood 6'0" 232 North Carolina
