If we can get Britt for a low draft pick I say 100% go for it. He has proven to be a playmaker and gets separation. I understand there are character concerns but we do have a strong coaching staff and locker room and hopefully he will be motivated to win. We also have rice a Rutgers alum which I honestly think can help. The only issue would be at the end of the season he's going to want money we won't have but hey I don't mind that problem I rather have too many good players to pay then no players worth the money lol

Madden doesn't replicate the unpredictable off field nature of guys like Kenny Britt.

Investing in high priced WRs doesn't make any sense, and I honestly can't think of one who was the missing piece to a championship. Let' just roll with what we have and draft some ody next year rather than upsetting the chemistry of the locker room.

Cleveland fielding offers for and open to trading WRs Josh Gordon and Greg Little. At least one team has made a quality offer for Gordon.

I know with them being in our division it'd be harder to get a trade done but I'd love to see the team get some type of deal done to acquire Gordon.

If we were to make a trade, I think many would agree that Gordon would be much more worth it over Britt.

Now Gordon would be interesting. I think it would cost a pretty high draft pick to get him though even without the intra-division factor added in. Doesn't seem like a move the front office would make.

Yeah -- they just spent a 2nd on him recently, so they'd likely be looking to get something similar in return. He's definitely not worth that at this point. I'd consider maybe a 4th, though.

I'm never quite sure. Some folks don't seem to recognize hue difference.

There was nothing personal intended.

Just accepted what will likely be a late first for a guy they traded up to #3 overall last year to draft in Trent Richardson. I would think a third would get it done if they are serious about this rebuild. He has two more years before FA following this season if I'm not mistaken, so I would love this trade. Likely not going to happen, though, considering they probably don't want to strengthen our team.

If we were to get this deal done I hope we hear about how the Browns robbed the Ravens, just like when we gave up a late rounder to move up one spot and get Ngata Cool

I still don't know why the Ravens haven't talked to the Seahawks about Doug Baldwin. That guy could easily be our #2 WR and play in the slot for us, and he's buried behind depth in Seattle and when Percy Harvin comes back he's not going to see the damn field.

Just been looking in the Gen and a couple of names thrown about quite a few times was Justin Blackmon and Miles Austin.

Im Thinking Jags would want a 1st or a 2nd n 4th minimum for Blackmon and i couldnt imagine Austin would be more than a 3rd now. What do u think to them as possibilities.

I doubt Seattle is trying to trade him right now given there's no guarantees about when Harvin will be healthy enough to be effective. Baldwin's really useful to them right now as a depth player.

Yes and Baldwin could be very useful to us as a full-time starter Wink

No doubt, but he's not a FA who gets to decide what his best situation would be. Seattle controls where he goes and what he does and they're not going to offer him to us out of the goodness of their hearts just because it's in our and maybe his best interest for him to get PT with the Ravens. They're going to hold on to him for quality depth at a position where they started off right away with injury troubles.

Why bother with any more veteran receiver options, when the team currently looks to have a strong defense that will give Joe time to gel with his young receivers and give those guys time to grow and get used to playing in the NFL?

If the Ravens had signed Britt or Baldwin or Lloyd or Moss or T.O. or coaxed Jerry Rice out of retirement, we would not have seen anything of Marlon Brown. Hell, he might not even be on the roster. It continues to baffle me why the feeling is that success must be RIGHT NOW THIS INSTANT, when the team is young and the worst that can happen in terms of an NFL team having a terrible season is that they get the best pick of the following year's draft.
