Ravens to sign Ricky Williams 

Post#1 » by KnickYorker » Tue Aug 9, 2011 2:12 am

The Baltimore Ravens have signed veteran running back Ricky Williams to replace Willis McGahee, who they let go days before training camp.
Ricky Williams could become the 26th member of the 10,000 rushing yards club, 12 of whom are Hall of Famers, this season.
Williams agreed to a two-year deal, the team announced on Monday. The contract is worth $2.5 million with some escalators that could make the contract worth $4 million total, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

I like this signing a lot. I wish we could somehow get a very good WR.

This is a good signing. Rice, Williams, Leach> Rice, McGahee, McClain. We do need to get another reciever though, Evans would be nice and he would help Smith for next year, while Cotchery would help us with his talent
