Bannan is a very nice role player. We signed him from Buffalo and he is a great guy, great team player and stout run defender. He is however, on the other side of 30 and to give the guy a 5 year contract with the money the Broncos spent seems to be a bit much for a guy like him. We in Bmore wish him nothing but the best. He was a combo starter/reserve here but easily could start on 80% of the teams in the NFL.
Dwan Edwards spent his first 3 seasons with the Ravens doing absolutely nothing. He was a second round pick and our first pick of the year after the failed Kyle Boller trade. It took him forever and most people had him labeled as a bust, but for the last 2 years the guy has been a very productive lineman. He is very good against the run. He is marginal as a pass rusher, but is versatile enough to play both the DE and DT position at about 305lbs. We are trying to resign him. Losing both him and Bannan would not be good for the Ravens.
The only upside to losing Edwards would be garnering a #3 pick from Denver and this as everyone has been saying is a very very deep draft. Given that we gave up a #3 for Anquan Boldin, I would look at it as a trade of Edwards and a #4 pick for Boldin and a #5 pick. No matter how you slice and dice it, that is a steal for the Ravens.
In either case, I wish both of those guys well. They were good team players and overall very productive football players. Neither gave themselves or the team a bad name and they will be looked upon fondly when they return.
Good luck to both wherever they go.

The guy must be on crack cause I think he is unrestricted.
Or maybe it's me...

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens veteran unrestricted free agent defensive lineman Dwan Edwards is visiting the Denver Broncos, a league source confirmed.

Edwards has already taken a visit to the Seattle Seahawks, but left without an agreement.

The Broncos signed former Ravens defensive lineman Justin Bannan on Friday and have installed him as their starting nose guard.

Edwards is well-suited to play defensive end in a 3-4 defense. He beat out Trevor Pryce for a starting job this season and is active, quick and stout against the run.

There is one potential obstacle toward Edwards getting a deal: his medical background.

Edwards had a spinal fusion procedure two years ago and sources have questioned whether his health is going to pass the scrutiny of a physical.

This is his 6th Season in the NFL.

NFL.com also has him down as a UFA

almost assuredly talking about getting back a compensatory pick.

haha i just read that comment and went and looked it up just a few minutes ago.. He is a UFA , that guy had me going though.

Maybe he was thinking they'd be getting a third rounder compensation pick in the 2011 draft? Or would that be even more daft?

almost assuredly talking about getting back a compensatory pick.

if so, he wouldn't have said "The only upside to losing Edwards would be garnering a #3 pick from Denver".

Yeah, I read that same comment and I was like WTF?

This compensation pick talk is eye opening. How many have the Broncos had over the last 5 years? I guess you have to lose real talent to get compensated, which means you have to have a strong talent base to begin with.

Yes, we lost Arthur Marshall to the Giants.
