Ravens match offer sheet for Taylor

March 21, 2005
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- The Baltimore Ravens have matched the one-year, $3 million offer sheet running Chester Taylor signed last week with the Cleveland Browns.

The Ravens had until Wednesday to match the offer for free agent Taylor, the primary backup to Pro Bowler Jamal Lewis, but opted to act Monday.

The deal includes a $2 million base salary, a $1 million signing bonus and a pair of $100,000 incentive clauses.

``This shows the continued commitment of Steve Bisciotti to win and the flexibility of our cap that we can retain a player like Chester,'' Baltimore general manager Ozzie Newsome said. ``Over the last three years, Chester has been productive both when spelling Jamal Lewis and when he has started for him. Keeping Chester makes us a stronger and deeper team.''

Taylor, slated to compete with Lee Suggs for the Browns' starting tailback job, would receive $100,000 if he makes the Pro Bowl and $100,000 if he rushes for 1,000 yards. It's unlikely that those incentives will be triggered in 2005 because of Lewis' presence. Taylor rushed for 714 yards and two touchdowns last season while catching 30 passes.

``He looks forward to helping the Ravens compete for a Super Bowl ring in 2005,'' agent Ken Sarnoff said of Taylor.

Taylor's contract will count approximately $3 million against the Ravens' 2005 salary cap. He is still slated to be an unrestricted free agent in 2006, when he would be free to sign with any franchise. Taylor was drafted in the sixth round out of Toledo in 2002.

If the Ravens hadn't opted matched the offer, they would have received the Browns' sixth-round draft pick as compensation.
================================================== =======

Lmfao, win-win situation for Cleveland. Taylor is certainly an NFL HB, he would've competed w/ Lee Suggs for the starting slot in C Town, and at $3M to backup Jamal Lewis his paper puts a little bit of a bind on the Ravens' cap. Nice. FU Baltimore.

Late.

Brian Billick was whining about it today

"There really was not much of a likelihood that we were going to let him go," Billick said. "It's unfortunate that Cleveland put us in that position, and it's great for Chester because he's going to get a nice payday, but it's not going to prevent us from doing anything further in free agency.

"It doesn't carry with it any dead money or constraints for next year. In that sense, it kind of just artificially pushes the cap up, and most teams choose not to do that.

"There are certain things you do to be competitive and improve your team. By the same token, there are things that you don't do, simply because, at the end of the day, it's not healthy for the league, for the cap so to speak. It artificially pushes it up for everybody. We've held true to that philosophy, so [signing other teams' restricted free agents] is not something that we have done nor a lot of other teams do."

He may get some time as Jamal Lewis recovers from a torn rectum.

Yeah, and Billick crying like a little bitch was great. I'd wanted to see that story, but it's exclusive to Ravensinsiders on the Bmore site...I'm not even a paid BrownsInsider, so I wasn't going to pay for the purple. Suck my ass, Billick...grown ass man wearing purple. WTF is that?! That's business...that's the NFL.

You were just forced to spend an extra $2.4 million on Taylor because you got caught w/ your pants down. If you were going to cry about it, if Taylor is so important to what you're doing, if you are sooooooo accountable when dealing with the cap, then maybe you should have made the higher tender offer to Taylor in the first place.

Suck it, gayboy. You owe all of your career success to Randy Moss and Ray Lewis. Stop crying...this is the NFL and you're embarassing yourself...bitch.

Late.
