    I guess, depending on how many wins Baltimore gets, it could be a low or high 4th round pick.

    So I have to root against the Ravens in hopes that our pick will be better? Boy, that will be hard for me...

    I think whoever we get willl be better than McNair. McNair on the squad would only hinder Vince's progress as an NFL Quarterback. He would be playing later because mcnair has a phat contract, etc. You have to look at the bright side.

    Giving McNair up for a 4th and freeing 9 million in CAP room was well worth it. When we consider the vets we don't have to cut and possibly a vet or two we might still be able to sign after the rookies are on board the trade was well worth it.

    I'm with you. I really thought we'd hold on to Mac until the middle of July just to screw with the rat turds and end up cutting him for nothing. I'm kind of surprised that they wouldn't give up the 4th on draft day. Makes them look stupid in my opinion. I suppose, though, there is something to the argument that a 4th this year is worth more than a 4th next year... but not much.

    Ravens only offered a 5th before the draft.

    Exactly. And the Titans wanted a 4th, which leads to the question "why would the Ravens give up a 4th now, but not on draft day when it would have been of more benefit to them?" They obviously would have liked to have had this situation settled sooner rather than later.

    There are only two possible answers.

    1. Ravens caved in and decided a 4th was worth it to end all this mess.

    2. Ravens were willing to deal next year's 4th, but not this year's.
