    McNair soon to be a Raven

    I'm new to the boards, so hey everybody, but it looks like my first post is gonna be pretty dark. According to the Tennessean it seems like McNair is only steps away from being a Raven.

    I had hoped that Steve would be back on our team next year, but this article really makes it seem like that's not gonna happen. We can always hope, but it's starting to look really grim.

    If we only get a 4th for McNair that's just one more reason Reese has to go...

    I know the NFL is a business, but I think that this "everybody's for sell" mentality that especially Reese has hurts morale... fans and team alike.

    Getting anything for McNair at this point is a bonus.
    If the arbitration ruling cuts him, we get nothing.
    If we have to cut him for cap room, we get nothing.

    I don't get why taking a 4th for him in trade is a poor reflection on Reese.

    I do get how Mcnair refusing to renegotiate a contract taht he knew would be renegotiated this year is a huge reflection on McNair's character.
    It is worse than Eddie George thinking he was worth more than he was offered.

    This whole situation is ridiculous. How many years does he think he's going to play? He was just talking retirement last year. Why not work out a fair market deal with the Titans and stay 2 more years? It's baffling to me. It's Eddie George all over again. And the Samari Rolle comment at the end is annoying. I'm sorry but they sound like big babies.

    Titans Wanted Fourth for McNair

    SUMMARY: The deal to trade Tennessee Titans QB Steve McNair was a round away from happening Sunday. The Titans asked for a fourth-round pick and the Ravens offered a fifth. At this time, Titans GM Floyd Reese can wait until late June or even July before making a decision on the future of McNair. If the Ravens and Titans don't strike a deal, McNair is expected to be released unless the Titans and his agent can agree to a new contract that would lower the veteran's salary cap number for 2006. McNair is scheduled to make $9 million in base salary and count $23.46 million against the cap. The Titans are approximately $100,000 under the salary cap, but they won't need money to sign their draft picks until July.

    I agree. I was thinking a second or a third at least. But that goes to show you how both teams feel about McNair's value.

    I had no idea we were that tight with the cap. I think the Ravens will have to give up a third for the '07 draft if they want him before mid-July.

    I was optimistic this might get worked out but if the fourth-round pick is true, then I don't think we'll have McNair on the roster when we enter '07.

    A real shame.
