Samari Rolle said that he was cut by the team today, but there has been no official announcement. Rolle said in an interview with Yahoo! Sports that he was happy to have the release instead of be in the shadow of Dominique Foxworth. Rolle is 32, and will give the Ravens an extra $4 million or so to maybe make a move for a guy like Torry Holt.
On another note, today in the NoLogoNeeded.com mock draft, with a blog for each NFL team making their selection, Darius Heyward-Bey was selected by the Bears with the #18 pick. It seems like a bit of a reach for me, but maybe not. The draft is moving fast, and will soon reach the #26 pick.
- I’m starting a Tournament Challenge group on ESPN for readers of the EB and other Baltimore blogs. If you want me to include your blog, or give you information about the group, email me, or if you can wait a day or two, I’m going to post more info on here.
- Fansided is doing a mock draft just like the one I’ve been posting about, with each blog making a pick. It will be two rounds, and I will put a link to it, wherever it will end up being, on the links page.
- Sorry about the slow posting lately, I’ve had a few papers to do, and I was doing a Selection Committee type thing at Rutgers. I’m a total sucker for March Madness.
- This is about 4 weeks late, but Jarrett Carter, the old blogger on this site, and his wife, are having their first child, I’m guessing in August or September or so, so congratulate him. His email is [email protected]
