    Apparently Lewis is again asking to be traded... I wonder if he wants to be in Nashville and hopes the Ravens really want McNair or if Reese has been talking to his agent, wanting him here.

    We didn't sign any of the MLB's that were available, so you never know what the FO's thinking is...

    According to a Ravens source, Ray Lewis or a representative called team officials 20 minutes before Wednesday's news conference about the draft and asked to be traded.
    -- Baltimore Sun

    Just let me fantasize.

    I very seriously doubt this is even a slight possiblity. The MLB isn't really on the field enough to warrant the kind of dinero Ray-Ray the Snitch :greedy: would command...:evil:

    There is no possible chance that Mcnair could be traded. No team in their right mind would ever pay him $23mil next year which is what they would have to do they they take him in a trade. When you trade for a player you have to pay him what he's gauranteed.... Mcnair will be cut and then he'll negotiate a new contract with a new team. Unless he decides to take 5 or 6 million per yr with the Titans for two more years and I highly doubt that'll happen. See ya' Stevie.

    With Thornton and Bulluck you could argue we have enough speed at OLB, that we don't need to be in nickel so often...

    I'm no cap expert, but I'm sure it's only the $9mill that they have to pay. The other $13mill have already been paid and only exist on the Titans financial sheet for cap purposes.

    I believe that's correct. He counts the 13 or so against our cap (which he has already pocketed) no matter what happens.
