Honestly, I'm wondering if this run with their defense may FINALLY be over???

List of FA:

Ray Lewis
Bart Scott
Terrell Suggs

Stover and Brown (starting C) are also unrestricted.  I don't see how they can afford to keep all of those guys.  Personally, I hope Ray Lewis leaves, just because I'm sick of having to see his ugly mug twice a year (or more).

Let's hope so. Also Ryan took the job with the Jets, and Kolkonis (director of player personal) may be on the outs.

Got to figure Ray Ray will be back, and maybe one of the other two guys.

Nice to see them with some tough decisions to make, and with their D having another year of age on them....we all know how that can add up. A guy who was a stud the year before can quickly become washed up by the time the next season rolls around.

Cowboys interested in Ravens' Lewis?

Word around the NFL is that the Dallas Cowboys are very interested in obtaining Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis if he becomes a free agent. The speculation is that the Cowboys are willing to give Lewis a three-year deal worth between $27 and $30 million, with $25 million guaranteed.

Dallas owner Jerry Jones believes his team is in the serious hunt for a Super Bowl title next season, and that Lewis could help solve some of the team's problems inside the locker room.

The Ravens are expected to begin negotiations with Lewis, who is in the last year of his contract, as soon as the season is over. Fellow linebackers Bart Scott and Terrell Suggs are also in the final years of their contracts.

Suggs' decision to play against the Steelers was a courageous one. Oh, and by the way, he happened to come up with two big sacks.

Will anyone hate me if I say I secretly want ray lewis in the black and gold? I'd almost guarantee barring injury we'd win it all next year with a defense like that.

Yes.

Fuck Ray Ray. I don't want his murdering ass anywhere near the Steelers locker room. If not Baltimore, Dallas is the perfect location for that thug. Our defense is great and was ranked #1 without the almighty Ray Ray, and will continue to be great with Farrior, Timmons, and Foote rotating in the middle.

We can win it all this year with the defense we have right now, why would that change next year?  Bringing Ray Lewis to Pittsburgh would be a waste of money.  We have other areas where that money should be going towards after this season is over, like the o-line for starters.

Nevermind that the fact that in all right the guy should be doing 10-20 in a Maryland state penitentiary.  Ray Lewis is one of the last players in this league who I would want to see dawning the Black and Gold.  It would make my stomach turn knowing that my money is going toward that guy's paycheck.

No way, no how.  Not worth it.  This ain't the Cowboys.  Jerry's been "one piece away" for years, with no playoff wins to show for it.  Let him blow his money on RayRay.

Up next, call up Pacman Jones and see if Chris Henry has any interest in being a Steeler.  clap

The homicide rate in Pittsburgh would skyrocket.

Leonhard is also a free agent so there are four starters and the D- Coordinator. 

I won't say that they won't be great again (mainly because that thought would make me giddy and I still have to work today) but it will be tougher on the D side while the O should be improving.
