2011 Will Be the Time for Young Ravens to Step Up

It’s been a wild start to free agency in the NFL and for the Baltimore Ravens.

It all started with a huge bombshell, at least from the fans perspective, that four longtime veteran contributors would be released. Sure we’ve been hearing about Willis McGahee for almost two years now and most weren’t surprised considering he was due 6 million dollars this season. But then the names slowly spilled out over the Internet – Kelly Gregg, Todd Heap, and Derrick Mason would join McGahee on the cut list.

Shock. Horror. Sadness. Disgust.

These are but a few of the emotions that fans have flooded talk radio and blogs with in every corner of cyberspace that covers the Ravens. Some openly questioned Ozzie Newsome’s sanity, while others had to decide what new jersey to purchase before Week One. Of course we all know that emotions can cloud your judgement and I’m here to say that things will be alright in Ravenstown.

You know why?

Because Ozzie Newsome has been preparing for this.

    Why have the Ravens not looked at tight end JOEY HAYNOS, UFA from the Dolphins? He was an asset for the Dolphins especially receiving in the Red Zone. At 6’8 and 270 lbs he is a great blocking tight end.

  2. I liked Joey Haynos from his day at College Park. The Ravens seem content to let Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta to take over the bulk of Todd Heap’s duties. I;m not a huge fan of third string Davon Drew so I’d be happy to see Baltimore take a flier on Haynos. I have no idea how Haynos’ foot has recovered from last season though and don’t know if he is still an injury concern.

    From what I’ve heard, Joey Haynos is fully recovered. I really hope a team picks him up soon.
