Rashard Mendenhall is facing the end of a 5-year $9.5 million contract for 2012 and a torn ACL.  His 2011 season ended in the final season game against the Cleveland Browns.  General Manager Kevin Colbert admitted that it may take Mendenhall a while to get healthy. “Potentially Rashard Mendenhall might not be ready for camp,” said Colbert. “In my mind, I never feel good about an ACL until a year.

Tim Hasselbeck suggested the Ravens could sign him away from Pittsburgh by offering the speedster...
