Thank you Ozzie Newsome for bringing in Justin Forsett
Ozzie Newsome yells louldy and claps as the officials signal first down.
The Will Hill signing is another example of why Ozzie Newsome is a total stud GM. Definitely a good argument for him as the best in NFL.

*BREAKING NEWS* A report on ESPN's OTL says that John Harbaugh wanted to cut Ray Rice immediately after seeing the video of him dragging his fiance out of the elevator in February, but was overruled by Steve Bisciotti (Owner), *** Cass (Team President), and Ozzie Newsome (GM). Thoughts? -NPR
Good column by SN's on the stench coming out of Balt. Ravens' owner, top execs should be removed.
everyone in the Ravens organization must go *** Cass, Ozzie Newsome, and whoever helped cover this fiasco up.
full of it. leave to answer ??s over Ozzie Newsome and owner. pathetic move, hes towing line.
How the Ray Rice scandal unfolded | I asked here a few days back if the Rice story would stick to Ozzie Newsome. Yes.
So if this true a big cover up by rat bird owners and ozzie Newsome well then they both should be suspended for year loss of draft picks
Ozzie Newsome, Please tell us it isn't so. YOU knew all along. John Harbaugh should be praised for his foresight into this matter!!
With all information thus far: have more respect for Harbaugh and much less for the otherwise untouchable Ozzie Newsome.
where does Ozzie Newsome fit into this situation?
.I feel that Roger Goodell, Ozzie Newsome, and Steve Bisciotti should receive the same punishment as Rice: indefinite suspension.
If the ESPN story on Rice is true, should Steve Bisciotti, *** Cass and Ozzie Newsome be suspended as well? And what of Goodell?
All Browns' fans with a soft spot for Ozzie Newsome...where the heck is he through all this? Not his finest hour.
The slimest looking person in all of this if report is true is the genius himself -- Ozzie Newsome.
Ozzie Newsome deserves to be fired. He actively covered up the incident to protect Rice & denied Harbaugh’s request he should be cut.
...that appears to extend way beyond football. Are we indicting Ozzie Newsome now?
The league has announced that Ozzie Newsome will head up a committee to investigate the .
Serious question:Why do you think Ozzie Newsome has evaded blame so much? Past success? Race? Howie Roseman gets killed if he's in same spot
Ozzie newsome will be fired...and a lot more Ravens officials. That ESPN report is crazy.someone wants the truth by any means
I knew firing was just a publicity stunt because the details of the event were known when it occurred.
God forbid, I ever find myself in a legal jam, I hope I've got Ozzie Newsome at my side. Because he'll really ride with you…

What Ray Rice did to his then fiancé and future wife, in that elevator is wrong, in every conceivable way. There’s no place in society for Domestic or any other kind of Violence against women. We need to teach our young men to exercise more self control than to regress to acts of violence. If the situation gets too chaotic & volatile, just walk away! With that being said, I don’t think the punishment fit the crime, in this case…. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s original punishment of a two game suspension was widely ridiculed by most in & out of Football. Especially in light of the year long suspension recently handed down to Cleveland Brown’s Receiver, Josh Gordan for violating the league’s substance policy. The Ravens had used words like "respect" and "proud" in referring to Rice following his arrest. When the NFL announced Rice's two-game suspension for domestic violence on July 24, Raven’s GM Ozzie Newsome said: "We respect the efforts Ray has made to become the best partner and father ...
Love how everyone's acting so outraged now that this Ray Rice video has been released (especially Harbaugh and Ozzie Newsome). The Atlantic City police summons stated that Rice caused "bodily injury to Janay Palmer, specifically by striking her with his hand, rendering her unconscious." What exactly did they think that meant before seeing the video? Sounds pretty clear to me. I would not have needed to see a visual prior to issuing a real punishment. Ridiculous.
I'm patiently waiting on Roger Goodell, Ozzie Newsome and John Harbaugh to call press conferences to announce their resignations for the cover up of the Ray Rice debacle!

Who is the better all-time football player? Alabama's Ozzie Newsome or Bo Jackson?
Fair Prediction? And GO. ALEX MARVEZ'S 2014 PREDICTION The 2014 Ravens are far better heeled to make a Super Bowl run than last year's defending champions. The offense added key pieces at wide receiver (Steve Smith) and center (Jeremy Zuttah) along with a well-respected coordinator in former Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak. Baltimore's version of the Big Three -- Terrell Suggs, Haloti Ngata and Elvis Dumervil -- return to spearhead what should once again be a dominant defensive front seven. And the overall roster has improved from the facelift general manager Ozzie Newsome began in 2013. Prediction: 10-6.
Who's the state's best ever football player -- Bo Jackson or Ozzie Newsome?
that's easy. Ozzie Newsome. Better athlete and more successful after football. A complete football player
Who's the state's best ever football player -- Auburn's Bo Jackson or Alabama's Ozzie Newsome?

Surprised & shocked. I couldn't believe it. I thot Ozzie Newsome was smarter than that.

The Ravens add two top 20-rated players for the middle of their defense, and the rest of the teams in the division shake their heads. Brooks is a solid 3rd round selection. If you didn't watch a ton of Mountain West football, you missed out on a very solid tight end in Gillmore."

The Football Life Cleveland 95 played last night, It set off the emotions all over again. The people who worked for the Browns under Belichek was amazing, from 1991 to 1995 Kirk Ferentz, Nick Saban, Tom Diemetrof, Scot Pioli, Eric Mangini, Jim Schwartz, Phil Savage, Ozzie Newsome, Scott Tannabaum, to name a few, the ashes of the old Browns are still having a major influence in todays NFL. Both Belichek and Ozzie Newsome went on to win Superbowls using the plans they developed in Cleveland. 5 total wins wins between them, not counting the loses Belichek had in the SB. If only the old Browns stayed! Modell has done more damage to the Browns fans and city than just moving the team.
17 – Baltimore Ravens (8-8) Team Needs: OL, S, ILB, WR Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S: Alabama All six of Baltimore’s picks in the first five rounds made it onto the field in 2013, and the next four picks never saw the field due to either injury or release. Of the first six, none had a steady, every-down role or impact. That is very atypical of an Ozzie Newsome draft; however, offers some promise for, at the very least, quality depth moving forward. But part of Newsome’s offseason plan of allowing several veterans to walk paid off in the sum of four compensatory picks to continue building this team back into Super Bowl form. Some shuffling of the interior offensive line is going to be needed with the implementation of Gary Kubiak’s zone-blocking scheme and, when that work is done, there will undoubtedly be an open position likely at center or guard. The Ravens will look for a versatile lineman down the road, however, especially if Ha Ha Clinton-Dix falls to them at this spot. Matt Elam’ ...
Like I will always say, Ozzie Newsome is the best GM in the NFL. Welcome Owen Daniels! Ravens are about to beast this year! I smell Playoffs!
Ozzie Newsome was a Pro Bowl TE and is in the HOF!! How Many Barners there AD TE's?
It was essential Ozzie Newsome and the Baltimore Ravens are going out and signing all these players on Offense from Steve Smith (Panthers) Owen Daniels and resign 3 other major contributors, that'll help the $120 Million bust. And YES Joe Flacco is NOT worth $120 Million. The chances of him leading Baltimore to the Super Bowl again without a great supporting cast isn't likely. His more important stats were just awful in 2013-14. When the Ravens won the Super Bowl they had 8 Pro Bowlers on Offense and in 2013 they had 1 and Flacco was average.
If Owen Daniels can stay healthy, it's a really nice pickup by Ozzie Newsome and Ravens

Let's take the time out to wish football Hall of Famer and Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome a happy birthday today! Ozzie Newsome Jr. (born 03/16/1957) played for the University of Alabama, where he started for all four years of his college career. Nicknamed "The Wizard of Oz," Newsome made the College Football All-America Team in 1977 and assisted the Crimson Tide to a 42-6 overall record during his four seasons. In total, Newsome amassed 102 receptions for 2,070 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns. His 20.3 average yards per catch was a Southeast Conference record for over 20 years. Newsome was named the Alabama Player of the Decade for the 1970s. He was a two-time All-SEC player (in 1976 and 1977), and named named him SEC Lineman of the Year in 1977 by the Birmingham Quarterback Club and the Atlanta Touchdown Club. In 1994, Newsome was enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame. Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant called him "the greatest end in Alabama history and that includes Don Hutson. A tota ...

Steve Smith tasted free agency for the first time in his 13-year career and lasted just over 24 hours on the open market. Steve Smith through the years Take a look at the best shots of Steve Smith. After spending Friday in Baltimore, the greatest player in Carolina Panthers' history signed a three-year contract with the Ravens worth up to $12 million, a source informed of the team's actions has told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. The deal comes with a $3.5 million signing bonus. The Ravens subsequently announced the move. Smith canceled a scheduled visit to New England after general manager Ozzie Newsome and coach John Harbaugh convinced him to stay, per Rapoport. In addition to the Patriots, Smith told reporters he had interest from the Redskins, Seahawks and other unspecified teams -- plus an offer from the Chargers. "I love the coach. I like the offensive scheme," Smith said, after signing. "There is a lot of familiarity in some regards. But then also have a fresh new perspective. Everything seemed to ...

C.J. Mosley : ILB - Alabama - Ozzie Newsome loves Alabama players & Mosley may be Alabama's best. The 6'2 - 234 pound linebacker may be just what Baltimore needs, even if ILB Daryl Smith is brought back. This kid can eventually take over at ILB & be the future signal caller on the defense of the Ravens for years to come. GO RAVENS!!
Sources tell the Baltimore Sun that the Ravens and ILB Daryl Smith still have a "disconnect" on contract numbers. Smith led the Ravens in tackles with 123 last season, playing all but two defensive snaps. GM Ozzie Newsome needs him back. Smith is likely hunting for more money than originally expected after watching 32-year-old Karlos Dansby squeeze four years and $24 million out of the Browns. The Broncos have a hole at middle linebacker and could come calling if they miss out on Jon Beason. - Source: Baltimore Sun (Rotoworld)
Known primarily for his game-breaking, kick-return ability, Jacoby Jones was viewed by some as a luxury item for the Ravens who seemingly had bigger needs. But general manager Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh didn’t quite see it that way.
Ozzie Newsome and the Ravens haven't been particularly active in handing out huge contracts to free agents. But that's not to say the Ravens haven't added important pieces through free agency.
a bit late but i just noticed this on MMQB: "Fun fact that may only interest me: When Mike Lombardi was fired as a personnel man by Cleveland before the 1996 draft, as the Browns became the Ravens, his worked helped leave Baltimore with the fourth and 26th pick in the first round. This week Lombardi was fired by the Browns again, along with team president Joe Banner, and in this year’s draft Cleveland has the fourth pick (its own) and 26th overall (from the Trent Richardson trade). In Baltimore in ’96, Ozzie Newsome drafted one Hall of Famer at 4 (Jonathan Ogden) and one future Hall of Famer at 26 (Ray Lewis). Your move, Ray Farmer."
If Cleveland Browns offered multiple picks for John Harbaugh & you are Ozzie Newsome or Steve Bisciotti would you have accepted?

Obviously my last post gave off the wrong impression, I've been high on the Orioles for this season just saying we still need an Ace to emerge and there weren't any in Free Agency so we just need to realize what kind of return we would get from the available crop of pitchers in the market but the more arms the better. Looks like Duquette pulled an Ozzie Newsome in waiting for the market to play out.
GM Ozzie Newsome says that Ray Rice remains in the Ravens' plans
Ozzie Newsome says Ray Rice remains in Ravens' plans.
Terrell Suggs has signed a four-year extension with Baltimore that saves the Ravens salary cap room and puts the linebacker in position to finish his career in Baltimore. The 31-year-old Suggs signed a six-year deal in 2009 that expired after the 2014 season. Now he's signed through 2018. At a news conference Monday to announce the extension, Suggs said, ''Sizzle will be a Raven for life.'' Suggs was expected to count $12.4 million against the salary cap. Now he's at $7.8 million. Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome says, ''It allows us to have the opportunity to pursue some of our own guys but also be prepared when free agency opens.'' Suggs earned his sixth Pro Bowl invite in 2013. The 11-year veteran is the franchise leader with 94 1/2 sacks.

Browns have 40 mil in cap space and 10 draft picks. Done right they could return to what they use to be and that's good. So I hope Ozzie Newsome number 2 works his magic
When general manager Ozzie Newsome spoke to the media at last month’s “State of the Ravens” news conference, he did everything but guarantee that the organization would add the type of pass catcher that it needs before the start of the 2014 season.
Best SS to play the game. Ozzie Newsome close 2ND, Ozzie is a H.O.F.er No
Browns fans it may be a reach however isn't it funny how history repeats itself. In 95 when the Browns left Ozzie Newsome first Black GM selected Ogden and Ray Lewis with the 4th and 26th pick.The Browns this year have the 4th and 26th pick this year almost 20 years to the date...And So Long Jeter ...class act and a true Yankee
Who are Possibles For The Ravens: Here are my thoughts about what the Ravens might do, offered with the caveat that no one from the front office has taken me aside and whispered a prediction. For starters, I would toss out all unrestricted free agents, i.e., those whose contracts are up. They cost more, and a team has to forfeit a draft pick when it signs a UFA. Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome hates doing that. He admitted last month that he prefers salary cap casualties, who don’t cost a pick. No UFAs means eliminating Decker, Nicks and others such as Buffalo safety Jairus Byrd and Cleveland center Alex Mack. The Ravens could use them, but as UFAs, they’re top-market guys who will cost more than the Ravens want to spend, both in salary and picks. Salary cap casualties are more likely to land here. And since most cuts haven’t occurred yet, we don’t exactly know who will be available. There’s a lot of speculation about Peppers, Ware, Troy Polamalu, Vince Wilfork and Santonio Holmes. I don’t see the Ra ...
I found this on a site. Something to think about Browns fans: In 1996, the Baltimore Ravens hired one of our favorite sons, Ozzie Newsome as their GM! A 39 year old African American. They had just like the Browns do now the 4th and 26th picks in the draft. They drafted...
***Black History Month News*** My Cleveland Browns have hired an African American GM.. He will be the 3rd black GM in the NFL! One of the other men is Browns great Ozzie Newsome
I am not surprised by Mike Lombardi and Joe Banner going BYE BYE- I was never a fan of them at all and felt they were purposely holding the Browns down by not being brazen enough to make the moves needed. As a lifer Browns fan I hope they can do something... I only wish they would hire Ozzie Newsome from Baltimore and bring him back to Cleveland. That won't happen though I do respect Ozzie's loyalty to the former Modell franchise but it would be nice to see him as the GM of the Cleveland Browns as Ozzie was one of my favorite players. Here we go. another 4-12 year more than likely. SIGH. Unless we're smart in the draft... and I am still hoping they stay away from 'Johnny Football'.
Ray Farmar is the next Ozzie Newsome! I feel much better about the Browns organization
I think the Browns got rid of Radioactive & Toxic today. Hope Ray Farmer turns into our Ozzie Newsome.
For those imbeciles who think Mike Preston has more integrity than John Harbaugh, Ozzie Newsome and Steve Bisciotti combined, I'm posting some Baltimore Ravens "truths" below. Feel free to share our Super Bowl coverage...
Oh yes! Anqwan Boldin gets the TD!! Are you watching Steve Bisciotti and Ozzie Newsome??
So Matt Leinart says."Kurt Warner led the Arizona Cardinals, not Ken Whisenhunt. I know, I was a part of that team.Warner leaves and we go 5-11 twice" I was feeling better about Caldwell after watching the press conference, and now I'm back to being a slappy. Yeah, I know, Leinart is a sour little pansy. But still, Dungy, Ozzie Newsome, and Peyton Manning didn't call to endorse Ken Whisenhunt either. These things are all working in concert to turn me back into a slappy, and reinforcing the fact that the fans really don't know jack. Don't let your sails get filled with the prevailing winds .
Browns near Super Bowl Need one more after beating Colts Browns 38, Indianapolis Colts 21 Cleveland Municipal Stadium January 09, 1988 By Tony Grossi Plain Dealer Reporter Sixty minutes of football - and a victory - separate the Browns from their first Super Bowl appearance. Again. Yet, after turning back the stubborn Indianapolis Colts, 38-21, to reach the AFC Championship Game for the second season in a row, the Browns did little celebrating in their dressing room. "It was no big deal," said linebacker Eddie Johnson, who chewed out his defensive teammates at halftime. "There was some barking, but basically it was very relaxed. We expected to be here." Linebacker Clay Matthews described the post-game atmosphere as "reserved." Tight end Ozzie Newsome, whose 65 yards led nine Cleveland receivers, said the celebration "wasn't half as big as it was last year." The Browns will learn who stands in their way to Super Bowl XXII in San Diego this afternoon. If Denver beats the Houston Oilers, the Browns will play ...

At the annual "State of the Ravens" press event today, Steve Bisciotti, Ozzie Newsome and John Harbaugh talked about team's offseason priorities:
Falcons director of player personnel Lionel Vital will interview for the Buccaneers GM position. Vital became the director of player personnel for the Falcons after Dave Caldwell was hired to be the General Manager in Jacksonville. He has 23 years of experience of which he has spent time under Falcons G.M. Thomas Dimitroff, Bill Belichick, Ozzie Newsome, and Scott Pioli.
Watching and reading about all of these hopeless, banana republic NFL franchises like Washington Redskins and Cleveland Browns firing another head coach and wondering how any sane Baltimore Ravens fan could possibly not appreciate what Steve Bisciotti, Ozzie Newsome, John Harbaugh, Joe Flacco and these guys have done since Dec. 31, 2007 when my WNST.net partner and friend Brian Billick was fired. Seriously, name one North American franchise or even college program that's been better, more relevant and more prideful than this group. If you only you people held Peter Angelos and the Baltimore Orioles to a 1/10 of these standards since 1993...
A message to Cowboy fans: They will never ever get past 8-8 mediocrity as long as Jerry Jones continues to consider himself a GM. He is a delusional wannabe and is his own worst enemy. If he cared about the fans like he says he does he would strip away his own title of GM and go out and hire a good football guy like Bill Polian, Ozzie Newsome or a Micky Loomis to run the organization and the scouting department. This would also attract better coaching candidates. No one wants to go there.
"The Ravens will have five defensive and three offensive starters hit free agency in March. Eugene Monroe, Michael Oher, Dennis Pitta, Ed Dickson, Jacoby Jones, Corey Graham, Daryl Smith, Arthur Jones, Josh Bynes and James Ihedigbo will all be free agents in 2014. Ozzie Newsome and his staff will also have to take a hard look at players who did not play to the level they’ve played to in the past; players like Haloti Ngata, Terrell Suggs and Ray Rice, who have a combined 2014 cap figure of $37.15 million."
Talk is that we'll fire the head coach. Not a smart move. I don't think it's what players or fans want either. UNLESS Bill Cowher is interested and we can lure Ozzie Newsome from Baltimore.
My thought on the Baltimore Ravens . Jim Caldwell is the worst OC in the NFL. he better be fired. our OLine stink. Gino Gradkowski AQ Shipley out Micheal Oher out. Ray Rice out . defensively James Ihedigbo out Jameel McClain out. Corey Graham back on special team only. We need Ozzie Newsome to step up and bring back some proud in this organisation
Veteran Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Brandon Stokley plans to retire after this season, his 15th in the NFL, he told the Denver Post. Stokley, 37, told the Post on Thursday that he met with Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome three weeks ago. After that meeting, Stokley, who was placed on injured reserve on Dec. 10 with a concussion, felt sure of his decision. "I'm glad I played this year because now I know I'm done," Stokley told the Post. "Had I not played this year I would have always felt I could have kept playing. I still know I can play but my body just can't go through it anymore." Stokley is one of just 18 receivers in NFL history to play at least 15 seasons. He will finish with 397 receptions for 5,339 yards and 39 touchdowns with the Ravens, Indianapolis Colts, Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks and New York Giants. Stokley caught a 38-yard touchdown pass from Trent Dilfer in the Ravens' Super Bowl XXXV win, and also has a championship ring from the Colts' Super Bowl XLI victory. "I think Brand ...

Bill Belichick says Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome is a rare talent and a man for whom he holds great respect and admiration.
So what would it take for Redskins fans as a whole to form a public corporation, buy out Dan Snyder, and hire Ozzie Newsome away from the Ravens? As easy as my life might become by being a Ravens fan, I'm too loyal to switch allegiances. Too bad Snyder is fairly young and will be running (ruining?) this team for probably the next 30 years.
Dan Duquette must've caught what Ozzie Newsome had with moves like these!
