    Dannell Ellerbe got a 2nd round tender because Baltimore is likely to lose UFA Jameel McClain.

    So if that happens, and we didn’t protect Ellerbe, the Ravens would have no one to play ILB next to RayRay…because Ellerbe was an Undrafted Rookie Free Agent, so he could split with no compensation with an original round tender.

    So Leinart acted like a baby when he was released? And this qualifies as “news”?

    He didn’t flame out as spectacularly as Ryan Leaf, but the end result was the same.
