    Too many RB available in the draft and free agency. He'll get a 10mil a year deal at the most from someone; but that's about it.
    I won't be surprised if he gets a contract with a large AAV.

    I will be surprised if he gets lots of guaranteed money.

    If Bell had taken the contract we offered him in 2017, for the next three years. He’d have averaged 14 mil a year based on the amount of guranteed money we offered. He’s not going to see that on average from any team. So first he talks Colts, now he’s talking Ravens... in a little while, he’ll be talking another team. His game is transparent.
    From the 2010-2018 season, Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the post season; not the regular season.

    I think that's probably right.

    My guess is that his lifetime earnings end up being more than if he would have taken our first contract, but less than if he would have taken the second.

    Broncos expected to trade mid-round pick for Joe Flacco

    Posted by Josh Alper on February 13, 2019, 11:45 AM EST

    The deal cannot become official until the new league year starts on March 13, but Joe Flacco is expected to move from Baltimore to Denver once trades can be completed.

    According to multiple reports, the Ravens are expected to get a mid-round pick back from the Broncos as compensation for the quarterback they moved to the bench in favor of rookie Lamar Jackson. The Broncos currently have nine 2019 picks, including two fourth-round selections and two fifth-round selections.

    Flacco’s contract calls for him to make a salary of $18.5 million in 2019 and he’s signed through 2021 with a total cap liability of $63 million once you remove the $16 million in dead cap space the Ravens will take on in the deal. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Flacco is expected to rework his deal with the Broncos.

    Finding out the exact pick heading back to Baltimore is only one of the questions left open by this deal. There’s also the matter of what the Broncos will do with Case Keenum and how Flacco’s exit from the market affects other teams in the market for quarterback help this offseason, to name two things to watch over the next month.

    UPDATE 12:04 p.m. ET: Multiple reports indicate it will be one of the two fourth-round picks going to Baltimore. The Broncos have their pick along with the one they acquired from the Texans in the Demaryius Thomas trade. Denver’s own pick is the 11th in the fourth round and the Texans’ pick is 12 selections further down the order.

    Greg Roman: We’re redefining everything we do on offense

    Posted by Josh Alper on February 14, 2019, 3:46 PM EST

    Greg Roman got bumped up to offensive coordinator in Baltimore after the Ravens’ loss to the Chargers in the playoffs and he knows one thing for sure about what he’ll be putting together in 2019.

    On a podcast for the Ravens website, Roman said the offense is going to be “tailored” around quarterback Lamar Jackson and have “elements” of what the team did once Jackson took over last season, but that he sees the process of building the entire system as starting from scratch.

    “We’re literally redefining everything we do as a staff, as a group,” Roman said. “Literally, everything. Every formation, every route, every run, every route concept. How can we make this offense, which up until this point has been good … we’re trying to make it as great as we can be. How can we make it as learnable, as understandable, as streamlined, as efficient [as possible]?”

    The process isn’t going to be over in a snap. While they know what Jackson brings to the table, Roman spoke often about “how the roster gets shaped” influencing what the team is going to do and there’s a lot about to happen on that front in the next couple of months.

    Can this Steelers defense deal with Jackson? They never could against Vick that I remember. And other running first QB's always gave them fits. Hopefully not to much hyperbole comes with this question. I seriously see problems with Jackson. Don't think he is Vick or Slash yet. But fits 2 games a year!

    Laser, no worries. Just stop the run on first & second down. Then on 3rd and 8, we'll play him for the one read, tuck & run.
