I've been trying to figure out how the Baltimore Ravens, a team that is usually run with a great deal of efficiency, could allow themselves to be in a position where three of their most important players on defense are all eligible for free agency in the same offseason. As it stands, linebackers Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs and Bart Scott will all be available to the highest-bidder in late February, assuming, of course, the Ravens don't find a way to keep them.
They won't be able to keep all three, and assuming they use their franchise tag, they might be able to keep two for at least one more season. There's also the possibility that somebody could take one for the team and sign a deal for less than market value.
