    It sounds like McNair and the Ravens are very close contract wise...but the Titans and Ravens are not close at all as far as compensation. The Ravens know all they really have to do is wait. If McNair wants out, all he has to do is refuse to renegotiate. Reese won't keep him with a $24 million cap hit, in my opinion, the the Ravens can get him without giving anything up. I hope Reese can pull it off.

    Don't we take a big old cap hit if we just release McNair now? And I agree- Cook may be representing Mac, but he is an ***... he has insulted all of us by his cheap shots and lack of candor. Even though the Titans have mishandled the situation Bus has done more than his fair share in this Bucket-O-Crap. Though I am glad we chose Vince Young, I would have loved the conflict of interest it would have created for Bus if we had selected Jay Cutler. That would have been a Bucket-O-Crap-Ala-Grande.

    The Ravens want McNair to begin learning the playbook before training camp. Reese doesn't need rookie money until mid-July. If the Ravens want him before then, it will cost them something.

    Also, maybe another team or two may show some interest this summer.

    I agree. I think Reese is letting the Ravens tell us what it will cost us (in the form of our renegotiation offer) to keep McNair.

    As I said in another thread....Bus must be buzzing on something good if he feels, as he quoted, that he is hoping to get Baltimore to basically double the money that the Titans had on the table.

    I wonder if that money stays doubled when they don't get McNair over there until late July.

    Either resign him or make Baltimore wait as late as possible to get him.
