Ravens are getting awful thin at key positions. Their fan base has been talking up Dwill as a replacement. Behind that oline I doubt he'd be willing to sign.

Aren't the Ravens on his list of teams he won't sign with?

Now Flacco is out 3-6 weeks with a disk problem in his back.

Link this to the CTE study release. Smart move for someone who does not need football.

Urschel was a JAG no more than that. He got hype due his brilliance at Math which is commendable to say the least. He'll be a loss for depth and as a maybe spot starter.

Ravens are having a amazingly bad off-season:

Orr gone, 1st with long term health issues then when he decided to come back due to a paperwork fuck up.

Pita: yes he is nothing special but he killed Steelers soft as putty zones and had a real knack for finding 1st down marker. He will be a major loss for a QB that needs his blankie.

Tavon Young: was Ravens best CB last season by a considerable distance. Imagine Steelers losing William Gay when he was playing his best football.

Dixon: was the only Raven RB who flashed any big time talent. West is serviceable and then? Jesus what a shit show. Ravens need to grab a FA badly.

Yanda is banged up and expected to miss all of camp. Probably not a big deal but given they're re-building oline (again) can't help plus Yanda is about to turn 33.

TEs: not named Pita are injured (Max Williams could be done), Gilmore is a china doll and Watson is ancient. A 1 drug ban from bye bye NFL is currently their starter: Nick Boyle.

Now Flacco. Back injuries are chronic they don't suddenly disappear with time, they linger, on and on. For a guy with sloppy as fuck mechanics having a bad back may not be a career ender but it is likely beginning of the end.

One thing to remember with Ravens and injuries is Harbaugh. When Perriman initially got hurt as a rookie Harbaugh told everyone it was no biggie he'd be back in week or two. Ravens have a recent history of under-stating how hurt players are; think complete opposite of Pats.

But he was still their starting Center. They have some major holes on that o-line.

Also consider this: Baltimore's top receiving options this year will be Breshad Perriman & Jeremy Maclin - both brand new starters. An extended absence from Flacco could really screw up his chemistry with his receivers early in the season.
