Brian McFarland ‏@RavensSalaryCap 1m According to NFLPA records, LB Jameel McClain has taken a $1.5M paycut. His base salary is now $1.5M (was $3M). Team's Cap has gone up $1.5M

-------------------------------------------------------------


thoughts:

- buys him some time to get healthy
- allows the Ravens to keep him around and not cut him
- allows the Ravens some CAP space for the next acquisition
- will Jacoby Jones be the next 'take a reasonable cut ($800K or whatever vet min is so they can pick up a guy when/if needed) or walk' candidate?

Looks like a good move considering we don't know how he'll come back from the injury. As far as Jacoby Jones goes, there are GMs waiting for Ozzie to cut him

Yup. Look at the payday Randle El got after a trick play in the Super Bowl.

I think Ozzie is looking to pick up someone who will get cut as cuts windle down. If he is (big IF) still looking for a WR I think paying attention to the Titans and who they release will be interesting. They have 6 WRs who are ok but really do not contribute on special teams. For example Kevin Walter and there 2nd round pick are running with the third team.
