He was going to be cut because he wouldn't take a 2mil pay cut with the Ravens. He's not going to be reducing his contract either in San Fran so the Ravens basically got a 6th rounder for nothing.

Playoffs this year: 22 receptions, 380 yards 4 TDs = beast

In fact, the reason Joe looked so good was because his WRs were simplying beasting. That 4th and inches catch by Boldin was incredible. Boldin and the other Ravens WRs pretty much carried Flacco to that Super Bowl.

Ironic how he "Mossed" a few defenders in the playoffs and Superbowl, now that he's going to the same team as Moss.

I just don't think the Ravens played their cards right. They didn't even really give themselves a chance to shop Boldin to other teams.

Eh, things change quickly. He's going from the SB champs to a team that likely has a better shot than his old team to win it all next year. One thing I would never question about him is his heart or effort. He always brings it.

Maybe the change of scenery will do him good. Carroll's "rah rah" approach will either resonate with Harvin or drive him off the deep end. I don't see a middle ground.

Washington just legalized weed, right? Percy Harvin can benefit from medical marijuana, right? I feel like the NFLPA would back him if he failed a test, because of his legit seizure causing headaches, and the NFL would be a tough position of suspending someone for what he can/will blame for medical reasons. He also has the money to fight it, and more importantly big enough game checks to not not fight it.

The league is definitely not on board when it comes to marijuana.

Marijuana legalization won't change NFL drug policy - NFL.com

Completely agree. Ive always felt Flaco is good QB, and until recently have felt he was underrated, but the dudes not as good as how much he got paid. I dont know if hes smart or dumb for not tkaing less in order to keep Boldin around.

Of course not.... at least yet.

But allowing a player with a well documented medical history of severe and dangerous headaches, who by the course of his employment exposes himself to regular head injuries, to use weed for medical reasons in a state where marijuana is legal could be the first step in the inevitability of gradualness the NFL is likely looking for to keep this thing from turning into a very public legal battle as more and more states legalize the weed.

Yeah that's opening up a pretty big can of worms. Not sure the league wants to even touch that anytime soon.

Might agree, Harvin & Tate kind of the same player IMO.

I don't like it. To me guys like Harvin are great when you have a QB that can't throw to save his life and you need to rely on gadget plays to give your running game some room, but when you have a guy like Wilson that can throw in a more traditional, less gimicky offense, then those gadget players can become a distraction because the temptation to call a play just to get someone involved has the potential to disrupt the rhythm and organic development of an offense.

On top of that top flight kick returners frequently are at risk to fall off the face of the Earth.

Now with that said if Harvin can develop into a more traditional receiving option, get better at running routes, especially now that he has a QB that can get him the ball downfield, and combine that with his amazing athletic ability then he will be a steal but for now I'm very skeptical that this will work.
