ERU, we agree on alot, but this is ludacris man. There is no way we should trade a multi-pro bowl player who is only 24 years old, because of one stupid grieveance. This will blow over, im sure, ozzie has a reputation of having an excellent relationship with the players, and Suggs loves playing in baltimore. He will get tagged, either at LB or DE (he will get the DE tag, as he rightfully deserves though) I understand his frustration, and I also understand that situation from the ravens POV. Hopefully, they can put this aside of a mediator can settle this, then we can work on a long term deal and keep one of our best players on our team right here in Baltimore.
Also, who would oyu want us to trade him for? he probably has late 1st/early 2nd round value as far as draft picks are concerned, and what true #1 WR are available through trade? we would almost certainly not get fair value, not to mention whats the point in trading a premier defensive player for a #1 WR when STEVE ******* MCNAIR will be throwing him the ball? The old man cant even hit willis in the flats, let alone a reciever 10 yards downfield. I am not for trading suggs, especially for a WR. I like our WR core right now, it just needs time to develop. Now that cameron is in here, I really think there is a chance our offence takes a step forward this year, given that Boller or Smith is under centre instead of Mcnair.
