Andrews has had a big year. 
Bateman's talent is clear. 
Hollywood took a big step forward. 

 

The '22 Ravens will get back Dobbins, and Edwards. 

Ricard is a Pro Bowler. 

Duvernay and Proche are usable. 

 

If the backs are truly healthy and ready to go, the '22 Ravens is probably the best collection of skill talent the organization has had. 

 

 

2006: Jamal Lewis, Mason, Heap, Clayton

 

2012: Rice, Boldin, T. Smith, Pitta, J. Jones, Pierce, Leach

 

2000: Lewis, Holmes, Sharpe, Ismail, Jermaine Lewis, Taylor, P. Johnson, Femi  (Offense was limited, but did have some talent.)

 

1996: Byner, Bam Morris, M. Jackson, D. Alexander, E. Green

Agree the skill positions are stacked next year.

Have to upgrade at both tackle positions. Don't need Pro Bowlers, but need mediocre to good. And an OC that plays to their strengths and manages game situations wisely.

Outside of maybe a mid or late round pick on a RB, I really would be ok with not upgrading any offensive skill positions. Focus on the lines. As long as they come in healthy, Brown, Bateman, Andrews, Boyle, Duvernay, Dobbins and Edwards is a large collection of talent you can easily win with.

Give me Linderbaum in the first round, resign and move Bozeman to LG. Offense, as long as it's healthy, should be set.

I'd be very surprised if Bozeman is on the team next year.  If they were expecting to resign Bozeman, I doubt they sign Mekari to his new contract

 

It's feasible under the cap, but like everything else...at what cost and what does that mean you can't do elsewhere?  Bozeman likely on pace for something approaching $10M per year.

Need Stanley back and playing well.  I don't think there are resources available to do anythign more that poorly patch LT otherwise.

 

If the medical team strongly suspects that he's not capable of returning, then you of course need to prioritize the position and invest more than if his return is up in the air (or if you're optimistic).  But him not being able to recover and needing to find an immediate LT replacement would be pretty devastating capwise.

Jeff Z said last week that the team and Bozeman are far away numbers wise. The team rarely reaches to resign its own FAs, sounds like they’ll move on unless Bozeman is just totally wrong on his market value.

I agree with the above that the skill positions are good. Don’t really need much there. Maybe a TE if Boyle isn’t coming around.

Very possible Bozeman is gone. Especially if he's wanting too much. Which would only make me want Linderbaum that much more. Powers and Cleveland haven't been terrible. I'd prefer Bozeman at LG over either, but it is what it is.

Its his 1st yr as full time center. Some team may go high but with only one yr there I can't see 10 mil per yr.

A lot of dumb teams with a lot of cap space out there. I believe Ryan Jensen is a FA too though. So the dumb teams with money will definitely target him before Bozeman.

My guess is something very similar to Jensen's 4/$42M.  That would still only tie him for 5th highest paid center. $8M would make him the 12th highest on APY.  He's gonna get more than that.
