With all the guys released because of cap issues, it's going to be a very different league next year. It will be interesting to see if the Ravens even make the playoffs.

His name sounds like the villain in a Jason Statham picture.

Why is this news? The Pats have signed and cut him several times over the past two years and his stats are less than impressive. He's got to be either 4th on the depth chart or a practice squad guy at best.
