according to NFL.com, the Ravens have informed derrick mason, todd heap, kelly gregg, and willis mcgahee they will be cut and the ravens plan to go after a high profile WR. I hope its not holmes. We better re-sign Ike or we may be in trouble.

The Baltimore Ravens (http://www.nfl.com/teams/baltimoreravens/profile?team=BAL) wasted no time executing a plan to gain salary cap relief for free agency, informing tight end Todd Heap (http://www.nfl.com/players/toddheap/profile?id=HEA302949) and wide receiver Derrick Mason (http://www.nfl.com/players/derrickmason/profile?id=MAS078652) that they will be released Thursday, The Baltimore Sun reported on Monday, citing league sources.
Heap and Mason have been stalwarts of Baltimore's offense, combining for 10,467 receiving yards and 70 touchdowns with the Ravens. Both players are still productive, but are vulnerable due to high salary figures. Jettisoning the veterans creates $9.1 million in cap room.

Mason is old and won't garner a big payday in free agency. Heap is no spring chicken either but he could still get a good deal elsewhere. McGahee has bad knees and hasn't done much lately. They have Rice to carry the rock, so Willis won't be back.

I would suspect they'll probably bring back either Mason or Heap, but not both.

they already said they are going to bring back mason and heap in hopes to get them cheaper!

I say no to heap he has been injury prone for the last 3 years!

Im surprised they haven't reached out to Chris Carr yet. Last year their secondary was as bad if not worse than ours. Carr is a decent corner, but he may just be a cap casualty. Personally I would rather sure up my secondary at this point than bring back Heap or Mason.

Maybe they are thinking about Carr...that would make sense. I do think they will call Heap back but im not so sure about Mason...I wouldnt' be surprised if they call Ochostinko to join them :rofl:
