    The Ravens have their new starting RT.
    Steel Maniac predicted no RBs would be chosen in the 1st round, so of course we selected:

    1(24) Najee Harris RB Alabama

    Glad that he got paid, but wish it was early enough to count for a comp.

    Hope that he declines quickly due to age.

    If we were happy with him not being re-signed, I guess we should be happy if he will be starting in Baltimore.

    This was intentional by Baltimore in order to ensure PIT wouldn't get a comp pick. Waited for the deadline to pass. They were talking about it on the radio.

    That is smart on their part..

    and I can’t wait for Bmore to lose due to AV getting abused by Watt and Highsmith (not sure who’s side he is on).
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    I guess we’re ripping the band-aid off and going with who we got. Not saying it’s a bad thing. Looking forward to see how this turns out.

    Baltimore said he’ll start out on the left side (Highsmith) and slide to the right side (Watt) when Ronnie Staley is healthy.

    Probably worth a 5th round comp pick for us. Sucks to see a fine man sign with the rats.
    Plan to spend 75 million in cap space in 2022 ( most in the NFL ) and use the 2 comp picks ( 3rd and 5th ) for a killer 2022 draft. We will be back hopefully with better coaching.

    I agree.

    But if there was more competition for his services, I don't think a deal like that would work.

    And the lack of competition is probably because of (i) crappy cap situation for the league and (ii) decline due to age.

    Hoping that (ii) gets cranked up this year.
