I just want to know how this will effect what smoot decides to do. I can't to see what kind of bonus he got. Hopefully not much cuz then better chances of smoot coming here

Rolle's signing bonus appears to be in the 10-12M range. Makes our offer to Smoot seem pretty much on target.

The Ravens have a great team, they should win the Maryland Department of Corrections' Super Bowl.

Ray Lewis - murderer
Gary Baxter - gambling racket boss
Terrell Suggs - violent drunk (assault)
Cornell Brown - drunk driver and drug user
Chris McCalister - drug user and drunk driver
[I]Samari [/I]Rolle - wife beater
Jamal Lewis - drug dealer

[I]edit by BrudLee - Antrelle Rolle is guilty of nothing...yet.[/I]

If Smoot doesn't re-sign, then we cannot overlook cornerback with the 9th pick.

I happen to think drafting a WR became less of a priority over this past weekend.

Initially, I thought the deal might have provided the team with leverage in negotiations with Fred Smoot. Unfortunately, upon closer examination of the terms of the contract, I have come to believe the deal might actually help Smoot get a bigger deal.

Rolle will get $12 million his first year with the team, plus will get a $11 million signing bonus. Essentially, Rolle will get in excess $20 million in guaranteed money - unless the Ravens cut him before September (which, is extremely unlikely).

I think we need to buckle down and just give Smoot that extra 2 million. Our defense will be in trouble if we're starting Walt Harris or a rookie. Don't forget, Springs had a great year last year, but he isn't exactly known for his durability. So we're not far from having our CB tandeem be Harris and Wilds.

Also - our defense scored ahead of Baltimore in every stat except scoring defense, and we weren't very far behind at all. Baltimore has the most overrated, media-hyped defense ever. Ray Lewis is old and losing a step, Reed is good, McCallister is good, Suggs is good, the rest are just benefitting from a nice system. Don't forget they lost their defensive coordinator too. Everyone hates Mike Nolan, but he had success.

From ESPN:"Rolle, considered one of the league's best coverage cornerbacks, agreed to a six-year, $30.5 million contract that included an $11 million signing bonus, ESPN.com's John Clayton reported. Rolle will receive $12 million in the first year of the contract and $18 million over the first three years of the deal." [url]http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2007289[/url]

I think the 12M your talking about already includes the signing bonus. If this is what the top CB in the market is getting, our offer to Smoot is pretty damn close. At this point, I'm with Daseal - suck it up, offer a little more and, in return, get Smoot to structure it in a cap friendly manner.
