    Re: Ravens to Tag Suggs?

    They cannot tag Lewis because his contract would be like $11million or something crazy. When you tag a player, they get the average of the top 5, or a 20% raise. Since lewis is already the highest paid, he would get the 20% raise.

    Suggs is a fantastic linebacker. I put him in the top 5 outside linebackers in the league, maybe even in the top three.
    We're bringing purple back.

    Still have 24 hours.


    Edit: They still can resign him. They have until the 27th.

    The Ravens are cheap @sses, othewise they wouldn't be in this predicament. Jason Brown is undoubtably going to test the market, he would be crazy not too. I'm 100% confident he will hit the market and I would send Ziggy's Jet to go pick him up.

    The only way they keep him is if they Franchise him, no team has two tags to hand out.

    Are we going to spend the money that he will command? I doubt it. I would love to see him here but I don't see it happening. I hope I am wrong.

    Seriously that would suck.To be quite honest I'm no expert but I thought you could use the tag one way or the other, not two seperate ones. Maybe I'm wrong... :-

    You are the man as always.

    However, a team can use either the franchise tag or transition tag in a given year, not both.

    Re: Ravens to Tag Suggs?

    Well thats good news cause I think we'll look to sign Brown, Vernon Carey is a good player but he's no blue chipper like Jason.
