Reggie Wayne a Raven? I don’t think so….

Reggie Wayne might have been a good idea as a receiver for the Ravens about three years ago— but not now. My guess is his agent has put out a rumor claiming that the Ravens and the Patriots are interested in signing his client. I was ready to put out a short essay on why the Ravens should avoid Reggie Wayne, but Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com beat me to the punch: “Team officials...
