Yeah, set him up with a limo service as part of his contract whether he asked for it or not.

It's a one-year deal at that price. I hate to admit it, but that's pretty good.

Well, he does have to prove he can stay on the field but still, that is so cheap. Hell of a job by Emery. If he proves himself this year, I'm sure they'll give him a multiyear deal.

900000 with bonus can bring it to 1.7.

He's 30+, so I doubt that happens, although he could be kept on a two-year deal or so.

That's what I was thinking, 2 or 3 years.

None of the deal is guaranteed so they can cut him if he messes up

Twice the player as Urlacher for half the price of the contract that wasn't good enough for him, can't beat that.

Good, time for DJ to man up. The NFL was pretty pissed at him considering they added 3 games onto his suspension.

If he messes up he will be suspended for a year anyway

Ravens are opening the year on the road.

Everyone is going to blame the Orioles, but the Ravens could have just played on Wednesday like the league did last year. The NFL made some big stink about not wanting to play on Rosh Hashanah, even though they did last year.

I know DJ a little bit, went to school with him in Miami. In the right team with structure he should be ok.

Agreed. Still, I really like this signing. While I was worried about having to potentially spend your first and maybe 2nd pick on a LB, this at least gives us some options. We might be able to spend that first pick on a Guard if an elite one falls again, and get a solid LB prospect in the 2nd.

Also, Williams has some great athletic ability still, for someone over 30. He's younger and cheaper than Urlacher would have been. I think he can lock down MLB or SAM as needed at least we well as Urlacher/Roach could have, physically. Also like the no-risk contract.

Another solid move by Emery IMO.
