The Ravens wanted a fourth-round pick from the Bears for a trade that didn’t happen during the first round of the 2011 draft after the Bears admittedly failed to call the trade in to the league.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Commissioner Roger Goodell would not order the Bears to compensate the Ravens, but he encouraged them to do so.
In response, the Bears essentially encouraged the Ravens to go to hell, surrendering nothing.
The case is now closed.
Still, it could mean that the Ravens and other teams will think twice before doing business with the Bears and G.M. Jerry Angelo in the future.
