Baltimore Ravens 2010 draft picks rounds 1-3

April 23, 2010

The Baltimore Ravens have made some pretty big moves so far in the 2010 draft.

While in the middle of the biggest three days for football upcoming stars—and remember we are on the clock–Ozzie Newsome has made choices that are going to have major impact in Charm City.

About 90% of Ravens fans hearts were broken last night when the Dallas Cowboys swooped in and traded up to get pick 24 to take WR Dez Bryant (personally I was glad for it and had a feeling Ozzie would trade down and build up the team with more picks).

And he did just that. With pick 25, Ozzie predictably chose to trade that to the Denver Broncos (who then chose Florida QB Tim Tebow) in exchange for picks 43, 70 and 114.

Was that a smart move?

Countdown to NFL free agency: what you need to know before midnight

March 5, 2010

A lot has happened this week and is about to happen in the coming week in the NFL.

For those who haven’t had time to keep up, I’m here to fill you in with some quick updates on some news from the week with your favorite teams and players that you will need to know.

On Tuesday, Colts QB Peyton Manning underwent neck surgery in Chicago. Don’t worry fans of Manning, it wasn’t a major surgery, and was performed to fix a pinched nerve; perhaps too much strain looking at Drew Brees holding up that Superbowl trophy?

But most importantly: this has been tender week for teams to make offers to current players prior to the deadline at midnight tonight.

What does this mean in an uncapped year? A team will show just how much a player is worth to them.

A tender is offered to a free agent, or a player whose contract with their current team has expired.

After this tender offer, if another team signs that player, then that new team will have to give up whatever the players tender offer was, which is draft picks; for example Brandon Marshall of the Broncos has a tender offer of a first and third round so if another team signed him, they would have to give them their first and third round draft picks.
