We have our first post-lockout transaction to pass along.
Okay, it won’t officially be a transaction until Thursday. But we’re going to hear a lot of reports of agreements, deals, and other planned player moves all week long before anything is official.
The first such report is no surprise: ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Willis McGahee has been informed he will be released by the Ravens. We included McGahee on our list of players likely to get cut because he has a $6 million salary and seemed unwilling to take a pay cut.
McGahee will make less money wherever he signs, but he becomes a solid option for teams looking for a backup running back.
