    Re: McGahee traded to Ravens

    even with 2 3rd's and a 7th i think that is one heck of a deal for the ravens. He will be a good fit there.

    Seems like a stupid move by Buffalo. According to what I've read, he was pretty much traded because the Bills anticipated difficult contract negotiations next year.

He could have had a lackluster year and re-signed for less than what the team is predicting; furthermore, Buffalo is almost always in the top 5 for cap space (This year was 33.0 Million PRIOR to the March cuts). They should use some of their space to, you know, not suck.
    I live in Buffalo Bills country and he was adament about not wanting to be here.
    He wanted the team to be moved to Toronto.
    By the way I am a University of Miami fan and have followed McGahee since college.
    He will be successful in Baltimore.

    I read that too, but from my understanding, his comments were supposedly taken out of context.



    I could definitely enjoy living in Canada!

    McGAHEE DEAL:
    SEVEN YEARS, $40.12 MILLION


    We're told that the Ravens and running back Willis McGahee are very close to agreeing on a seven-year deal worth $40.12 million.

    As we previously explained, McGahee will receive $7.5 million to sign, an initial option bonus of $6 million, and a second option bonus of $1.5 million.
    The salaries are $595,000 in 2007, $605,000 in 2008, $620,000 in 2009, $3.6 million in 2010, $6.0 million in 2011, $6.5 million in 2012, and $7.2 million in 2013.

    Since McGahee was due to earn $2.155 million in 2007, the deal is essentially a six-year extension worth $37.965 million.

    If the Ravens cut McGahee before the back-end salaries kick in, he will earn a total of $20.42 million over four years.
