According to the Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is reportedly looking to make $10 million per season in his next contract.
The only running backs that make over $10 million a season are Adrian Peterson and Chris Johnson. Rice is not in the same league as either of those players.
Running backs that make just under $10 million a year are LeSean McCoy, Arian Foster and Fred Jackson.
In the end, there’s simply no way the Ravens will pay Rice $10 million per year.
BEST OF MAXIM
That is the question that has plagued the Ravens and running back Ray Rice’s agent all offseason. Is it Arian Foster/LeSean McCoy value or Adrian Peterson/Chris Johnson?
Who really knows?
Rice is the most dynamic player on the Ravens’ offense, but he’s not the best. That distinction belongs to quarterback Joe Flacco. The running back sealed the AFC North with two long touchdown...
With Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice seeking a new long-term contract and without placing his signature on his offer sheet, should the Ravens be looking at RB Cedric Benson? It is being reported that Ray Rice is seeking a contract which would be in the $10 million dollar annually range but the Ravens do not seem anxious to meet his contractual demands.
The Ravens placed the franchise...
They play on the opposite side of the ball. While quarterback Joe Flacco anchors the Ravens offense, outside linebacker Terrell Suggs is one of the cornerstone pieces on one of the best defensive units in the NFL. Flacco is far from perfect. His biggest problem is following up one solid performance with another. One week [...]
Legendary NFL linebacker Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens visited the Loyola University Maryland men’s lacrosse team before its practice on Wednesday, May 16, to give a talk prior to the Greyhounds’ NCAA Quarterfinals game and it was a typical monster from Ray. As far as motivational speakers go, Ray has a very long career ahead of him as none other than Tony Robbins could...
Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens gave a speech to the Loyola Greyhounds lacrosse team last week. This speech wasn't as good as some of the other ones Lewis has given to other teams.Lewis was more calm during this speech than in the speech he gave to the Stanford basketball team a few months ago. Lacrosse is a different sport than basketball though and I am sure Lewis knows what he is doing.
According to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun, there has been no indication that the Baltimore Ravens may place linebacker Terrell Suggs on the nonfootball injury list and not pay his entire $4.9 million base salary for the upcoming season, even though they legally hold that right because of the new CBA.
Right now the Ravens front office has also reportedly not held...
The Baltimore Ravens and Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice continue to talk about a contract extension. But the two sides have not made any strides towards a new deal, a source familiar with the talks told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The deadline for Rice and the Ravens to hammer out a new deal [...]
I'm not Mike Florio's biggest fan... although I liked him several years back prior to his Pro Football Talk blog turning "corporate". He was a lot edgier back then with breaking news.Now it seems like Florio is more about speculative commentary. That's his thing.So it didn't surprise me to see this item on May 21st---Reed Using Suggs’ Injury As Leverage...
A big sticking point of the lockout dispute last offseason was about offseason practices. The players got what they wanted, fewer mandated offseason practices, but it appears it’s backfired in their faces at least for Terrell Suggs and Jason Peters. With fewer mandated practices, players have to stay in shape on their own and sometimes when they attempt to do that, they get hurt...
Future Hall of Fame free safety Ed Reed told Sirius/XM NFL Radio hosts Adam Schein and Rich Gannon during an interview on Thursday that health concerns have him again mulling retirement. Reed, a native of Louisiana who has played his … Continue reading →
While most are busy pointing fingers at the NFL for not protecting or helping players that have suffered from head trauma during their career, you have some current and former players that are taking a proactive approach to protecting themselves. We’ve already had former Ricky Williams tell us about how he had taken a holistic [...]
LaQuan Williams emerged as the biggest surprise from the Baltimore Ravens' undrafted rookie class last summer.
1(1) - Ray Rice, RB, Bal: I went off the board with Rice instead of Arian Foster simply because I think Rice is a better bet to stay healthy. In a PPR league, their values are close enough for that to be a deciding factor. Plus, how often does the consensus #1 actually live up to the billing?
2(28) - Adrian Peterson, RB, Min: Couldn't resist the value here if he does suit up...
