No deal yet for Torrey Smith as Ravens release Jacoby Jones…

Jacoby Jones made some memorable “big plays” in his 3 years with the Ravens… but there are 3 million reasons why the Ravens had to let him go… Maybe it’s just brinksmanship on both sides, but it sure looks like Torrey Smith’s agent and the Ravens are dragging their feet on getting a contract extension done… Still no deal with WR Torrey Smith, who is arguably the...

Baltimore Ravens free agency preview: Baltimore will try to mimic 2014's successes

The Ravens made some very savvy signings last year, bringing in journeyman running back Justin Forsett and wide receiver Steve Smith, who had a boulder on his shoulder, rather than a chip. They now look to complement their current roster with unyielding talent while potentially watching some home-grown players test free agency. Torrey Smith and Pernell McPhee, both whom were selected...

Chiefs mock draft: Just because they need a WR doesn't mean they'll take one first

It might surprise Chiefs fans to learn that quarterback Alex Smith threw just two fewer touchdown passes last season (18) than Seattle's Russell Wilson (20) and that the Chiefs scored 36 offensive touchdowns, compared with 40 by the Seahawks. For a beleaguered offense, it wasn't that much less productive than one that almost won a Super Bowl. Even so, that reality is overshadowed...

Baltimore Ravens Release Jacoby Jones

In a less-than-surprising move, the Baltimore Ravens have released wide receiver and return specialist Jacoby Jones.

Ravens owner concerned Smith might try to break the bank

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith will either re-sign with the team prior to free agency or hit the open market on March 10th.

Free Agents That Could Interest the Eagles

What Will it Take for the Ravens to get to the Super Bowl?

For the Baltimore Ravens, the 2014 season was like a tale of two different teams. There’s one team that entered 2014 with the league’s 28th-most difficult schedule, yet somehow finished third in the AFC North with a 10-6 record. This team beat up on the bad teams, but lost four times to 2014 playoff teams and twice to other wildcard contenders.Really this team was fortunate it...

Projected Landing Spots for Top Free Agent Wide Receivers

When looking at where some of the top-tier pending free agents might land on the open market next month, it’s hard to draw an ultimate conclusion before addressing the whole franchise tag situation.

Measuring the Eagles’ cost of keeping Maclin and McCoy…

Your offense can probably survive the departure of WR Jeremy Maclin for a big free agent payday if you decide you don’t want to match the offer.
