Is Brandon Marshall cryptically hinting towards a Ravens signing?

This slipped past me somehow, however it sure is interesting. We all saw the Late For Work column about Brandon Marshall and his alleged conversations with John Harbaugh — at the time, it was an interesting — if not odd, and borderline tampering — article.  Well, it may not be unfounded.
