Ravens have Mark Anderson in for a visit

Mark Anderson has been making the rounds of teams looking for pass rushing help since free agency got underway and his travels have now landed him in Baltimore.

Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports that Anderson was at Ravens headquarters for a visit with team officials on Tuesday. The Ravens have made pass rushing help part of their offseason to-do list and Anderson certainly fits the bill. He had 12.5 sacks for the Patriots across the regular season and playoffs as a situational pass rusher and he’s the best pass rusher currently on the open market.

The Ravens have a need for help in the front seven after losing both Cory Redding and Jarret Johnson as free agents in the last week. Where Anderson would fit into their scheme isn’t entirely clear, but they’ve shown enough creativity with using Terrell Suggs that plugging Anderson in shouldn’t be a problem.

Anderson has also drawn interest from the Dolphins, Jaguars and Titans.

    Is Kindle going to be healthy enough to replace Johnson?

    He’d be a solid contributor, bring him in Oz! If anything, it provides much needed depth for the Ravens with the loss of JJ.

    Too bad they have to tie up all their money in Flacco and Rice, who have as many combined AFC Championship wins and/or Super Bowl appearances as you and me: NONE.

    It’s been either boring or painful to be a Ravens fan during free agency this year and I understand that’s what good teams are like during FA but I’d be ecstatic if we signed just about anyone right now

    @gotcaughtcheating – you name must say it all. stupid. the ravens have no money tied up in flacco and rice. flacco is in 4/5 of a rookie contract and rice is a franchise RB with a 7 million tender. wake up moron.

    Ozzie always takes his time and it pays off.
    How did the Eagles do last year?

    How many times have you been to the play-offs in the last four years?

    S.O.P. – Standard Operations Proceeding

    Time and time again, Ozzie & Co. have played the offseason to perfection. Every year they lose players at key positions, it’s a product of their successful system. In the end, they’re only going to be replaced by either productive veterans, once cut due to ‘capsualities’, or homerun selections on key players that fills a need in the draft.

    Ozzie & Co. are beastly this time of year, and no one can deny this. Just look at their recent track record.

    Yes, Elvis Grbac was an epic success. Along with Boldin. And Houshmanzada. And Lee Evans. And all the other failed #1 picks. Oh and choosing to keep Jamal Lewis over Priest Holmes was a great decision too. Now they’re purging their roster in order to give a mediocre QB and a run-of-the mill tailback huge contracts.

    PS Anderson signed with the Bills.

    @gotcaughtcheating

    Who let this moron in the room.

    Boldin is doing just fine.
    Housh was a bust, on a 1 year deal for very little money, who cares?
    Are you serious about Jamal? Did you forget he had 2000 yards rushing? Priest was good but c’mon he had a 3 year career.
    Elvis is the best you got, and he took a team who lost Jamal for the year to the playoffs and won a game.

    sign him Oz.
