You know, Marky Mark the white rapper
mark deitchman. no idea who he is though. i looked him up on the net. works for wqam
Until he signs with someone I guess you never know where he'll end up
Not seeing that twitter post, most have been false.
EDIT: Never mind, just updated.
I cannot wait to hear from marky mark again
I'm still a little iffy on Ireland adding these old pass rushers. We're actively seeking to get younger. Pass rushers don't tend to fade as they get older, they tend to either be good or poor, and when they stop being good, that's the time to move on, because they're not coming back. Sure, Dumerville, Abraham, Osi, Freeny, they may all have a year or 3 left, but I can't see Ireland signing any of them to a multi-year contract.
Ravens land Dumervil on 5-year, $35M contract
Ravens agreed to terms with DE/OLB Elvis Dumervil, formerly of the Broncos, on a five-year contract worth up to $35 million.
Just as some observers began writing off the reigning Super Bowl champs, GM Ozzie Newsome lands -- easily -- the top free agent left on the market. Dumervil will return to 3-4 outside linebacker in Baltimore. He enjoyed his career-best season as a 3-4 rush 'backer in Denver, leading the NFL with 17 sacks in 2009. Don "Wink" Martindale was on Denver's staff during that season and is now the Ravens' linebackers coach. Dumervil, 29, will team with Terrell Suggs to give Baltimore the premier outside-edge rusher duo in football,
So weird that the Ravens have let so much walk and they then sign dumerville , perplexing but oh well. Shows for all the talk they didnt value their guys as much as we think. I mean seriously Boldin for nothing
So much for the Dolphins cap space, the zero state tax in Florida, the better weather, the hotter chicks and the large and active Haitian community in Miami.
Elvis has left the building. Thank you very much.
None of that ever comes into play. Just like most teams if we outbid we get the guy
So Dumervil signed a 5 year $35 million deal. We signed Brian Hartline to similar money. Jeff Ireland is such a loser.
Im far from an Ireland fan but this decision is far from what makes him a loser. Now if u want to talk about overpaying Ellerbee the same money but still Im glad we didnt go after Dumerville
Im glad we passed on him. He's a tremendous pass rusher but cant stop the run. IMO i like to have a guy whos pretty equal in both departments. Not to mention he is sorta injury prone. He did miss a season and few games last year. Vernon needs to bulk up or Oderick needs to step up this year because any other pass rushing is coming from the raw NFL draft.
Can we sign Winston and Moore now so we can keep Tannehill upright to throw to those new weapons. Go get the pass rush and db in the draft
Always someone with the smart *** comments. Just stop.
Always will be. It will never stop. Just a sample of the society as a whole.
also a sample of fans tired of losing
I'm thinking Baltimore got desperate after literally losing every FA, plus giving a huge contract to a QB who, and this might cause a stir, isn't THAT great. Until this year, he was a choke artist. He bet on himself and got a huge contract. With no one to throw to and a DECIMATED defense, this team won't win a blessed thing. The bigger issue for them is losing so much. They couldn't afford to NOT bring at least 1 name in after all of that.
7 mill a year im good thanks though. They overpayed for sure they would have been better off giving that to ellerbee thats the same money. Good job jeff.
Keep this in mind, if the Great and Powerful Ozzie had his way, Ellerbe would still be in Baltimore and right now Dumervil is probably re-upping with Denver. Miami stole his "Plan A" out from under him.
Well his metered plan A im pretty sure they are happier with Dumervil than Ellerbee since pass rushers are harder to find than MLB's. Seems like they could have matched Ellerbee's contract easily if they wanted to but 5 million was the max they valued him at. I wouldnt exactly call overpaying 2 million per year stealing his plan A.
For those who don't venture into the other forums much (I don't), Dumervil and the Ravens agreed to terms on a 5 year/$35million contract - caught this on ESPN about an hour ago.
Not sure why your coming off condescending towards Ozzie. Miami should be DYING to find a man like him in this organization. Are you really clowning a man that built a team via draft and was successful for years towards a franchise that has 1 player left from 2 drft classes?
Lets wait and see how Mr. Plan "A" pans out before acting up like that.
this is why the ravens win.
they dont pass up talent when its available.
