Moreover I think it means we target a FS either high in the draft or in FA and don't necessarily overpay for Mosley.

This could be a very weird looking defense next year.

Obviously EDC didn't think leadership and disguised coverages was worth $7.5m

what i said in the other thread:

I do NOT want Landon Collins like some will say. A safety group of him and Jefferson will get beat deep 10 times a game.

Sign Earl Thomas or Honey Badger or

Draft Nasir Adderly or

Just start Chuck Clark. All 3 better options than spending $ on Collins imo

Would love to see them get the heist of a century by signing Earl Thomas. No way I could see that actually happening, though.

This sums it up pretty much. I think there are a few more options in the draft with some ability, but these are all the key players in the situation right now.

It's just unfortunate we can't curb Jefferson because of his ridiculous contract.

We can and I bet we will let Jefferson go.  His contract was made for a potential exit after two years. They basically guaranteed the first two years and gave and at this point they have to decide if he's worth $8M for 2019 (and potentially $7M for 2020). I certainly expect the answer to that to be no.

I think they're afraid of the dead money though.

Completely justified reverence for Weddle's character seems to be distorting the reality of him on the field for some people. Some of the reactions to us letting him go are really out there, from fans and media alike. Eric brought some commendable aspects to our defense, but to deny that his limitations and weaknesses frequently outweighed any positives is not assessing the situation correctly imo.

It's not a factor.

There are 4 options for the Ravens:

OPTION 1:
Let Tony Jefferson go now
2018 cap hit: $8.82M
2019 cap hit: $0

OPTION 2:
Keep Tony Jefferson for 2019 and cut him in 2020
2018 cap hit: $12.66M
2019 cap hit: $4.17M

OPTION 3:
Keep Tony Jefferson for 2 more years
2018 cap hit: $12.66M
2019 cap hit: $11.17M

OPTION 4: 
Extend Tony Jefferson...

 

It's really as simple as: "Do you want to pay $8M in 2019 for Tony Jefferson?"

Well, that's good news then. I thought his restructuring complicated things.

Now we can cut him, and rightfully promote Chuck Clark. Then add a true FS to the roster.
